A Wonderful Man Fixes Bikes And Gives Them To Less Fortunate Kids (Video)
Posted by Maitlynn on October 31 2017
Shawn Ortolano is a very generous man who started the charity, Spokes of Hope, to take in and refurbish bicycles to give to kids who would not otherwise be able to afford one.

“It could be a bike that a kid grew out of, it could be a bike that somebody pulled out of the garbage,” said Ortolano. “I’ve got a lot of friends who work for the Sanitation Department, they’ll take bikes that are being thrown out and they’ll give them to me. Even if I wasn’t to use the entire bike, I could put the tires on another bike.”

Ortolano usually gives the bikes away but also encourages people to trade in an old bike!

Since starting the program last year, he has given an estimated 125 bicycles and has many extremely happy "customers."

Ortolano is the perfect example of people who take something as simple as recycling bicycles and makes people's days with them and we are all for it!
