The organizations are asking that Memphians donate $300 to the campaign. This would provide a bike, helmet, lights, and a lock to a teen in South Memphis.

“This gift will allow teenagers to travel to-and-from school, work, after-school activities, sports, and work obligations,” Shannon Little, Revolutions, media contact said.

The campaign will officially kick off on Tuesday, but donations will also be accepted any time after that on Revolutions’ website and Facebook page.

The bikes and equipment will be given to teens

who are participating in the Big Jump Teen Ambassadors program — a piece of the larger recently-launched initiative aimed at getting more people biking


 in South Memphis.

While, Revolutions’ campaign is a part of the citywide collaboration of local non-profits to “Grit, Grind, and Give,” on #givingtuesday, a day set aside globally to celebrate generosity.
