Moto for Education

I Got an E-Mail from Rick Rose requesting a mention about a noble cause. Here is a copy of his letter.

I’mhoping you’ll post something about Moto For Education in your blog, and helpget the word out about a desperate situation. 

Mycousin volunteers for a school in Honduras that provides distance education forthe Lenca people of the region. When she told me that the four teachers wereprevented from reaching their students -- some almost 100 km. away throughdifficult mountainous terrain -- because two of their old motorcycles died, andthe third can barely be repaired, I offered to help. I think it’s safe to saythat anyone who bikes, races or rides knows the value of a reliable set ofwheels -- I sure couldn’t do without mine. And I know that motorcycleenthusiasts are also a caring bunch of people. So I’m spreading the word thatthose teachers -- Bertha, Arturo, Armando, and Natividad – desperately need ourhelp. A whole lot of small donations will quickly add up to a huge differencein the lives of their students. To learn more about this wonderful distance educationprogram, El Maestro en Casa (Teacher in the Home), and to make a donation, goto Moto For Education at’s make a difference in the lives of Lenca students. Let’s help them buy anew motorcycle for their school.

I’mattaching a logo, and a photo of Bertha and the last remaining motorcycle. I’malso attaching a photo of me and my old lady (literally, old: it’s my88-year-old mother) on my 650 Yamaha. Feel free to use any or all, and to editthe text if you need to.

Manythanks for your consideration and help,
Rick Rose
