Give to the Max Day – Nov 15

A Better Society will be participating in Minnesota’s largest single day donation event for nonprofits.

See the letter below from our Executive Director, Heather Tran.

Hello friends,

Almost five years ago, Khai and I started the non-profit organization, A Better Society. We are holding a fundraiser for one of our projects, Project Life-Cycle. Over the past five years, through countless volunteer hours, the donation of thousands of bikes, and the financial support of friends and local businesses, Project Life-Cycle has provided over 1000 bikes throughout the Twin Cities and all the way to West Africa! We are asking for your help to support and spread the word about this wonderful project.

As you may know, Project Life-Cycle (a project of A Better Society) is making a difference every day through it’s mission to provide free, refurbished bicycles and new helmets to anyone who needs one. Your generous support means that we can continue to provide basic transportation to those who need it the most.

Join us on Thursday, November 15th, Minnesota’s Give to the Max Day! By making your donation on this special day, your gift could help us win an extra $1,000 from, the event sponsor, for our work in the community.

  • For every $10 donation, we can purchase one brand new helmet for a person in need.
  • For every $20 donation, we can repair and redistribute a bicycle (this cost includes parts and facility).
  • For every $100 donation, we can buy a set of tools for a volunteer station.
  • For every $250 donation, we get one step closer to being able to expand our mission to other communities.

This year, we are excited to announce a matching grant for this event – for every dollar that you donate on the 15th, a private donor has generously offered to match it (up to $5,000)!

Together, we hope to raise more than $10,000 on Give to the Max Day and we’re counting on your help! Help us build a better society through Give to the Max day!
