Teach 'em how to fish; or donate to Messy Jessie's Bicycle Academy (and let her do the teaching)

Feel like doing something nice to help San Diego's under-privileged kids? Jessica Stephens of Messy Jessie's is trying to start up a Bicycle Academy to educate youths on how to repair bicycles and to provide bikes to those in need.

Jessica has been working in the bicycle industry for the past fifteen years and currently runs a bicycle stand at the local farmers markets, along with teaching basic maintenance classes at local bike shops and make jewelry out of the worn bike parts. The lass knows her craft and is willing to pass it along to make life better for others. This sure is a cause worth joining.

Please visit her website; http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/messy-jessie-s-bicycle-academy , and help if you can!
