Old Books want New Readers.
You have a stockpile of them at home.
They are falling off the shelf. Begging to be read.
Now do something about them.

We give you a cause, you bring your books. We display them, so others who love books will buy them. Then we all have beer.
The Cause: Proceeds from the sales go to charity.

THE BICYCLE PROJECT - Let your old bicycle help a poor village kid get to school

A brief about The Bicycle Project

Known by the very simple and easy to recall name of The Bicycle Project, this charity initiative took birth just outside Mumbai city, the financial metropolitan capital of India. The brainchild of three individuals: businessman Hemant Chhabra, his ex-teacher wife Sangeeta and their journalist friend Simona Terron; the project addresses rural neglect with the approach of recycling urban waste.

We have started off with refurbishing bicycles that are unused and lie rusting in the city and giving them to school-going tribal children who need to traverse long distances to get to school from their remote villages.
The project eventually aims at expanding to old computers, disused books and other items in the future.

Through a blog (, an upcoming website ( and networking sites like Facebook (, Orkut ( and, the project has managed to appoint collection centres where the bikes can be dropped off, and regularly organises quirky events to garner awareness about how this simple act of giving away something you don’t want, can change lives of people who don’t want much but need all the help they can get.

Please drop your books off with us by Friday the 27th, 2010 latest so we can catalog them and share the list on Facebook. Pick the address most convenient for you or mail us at with your details and when we can come and pick up your books.
