In Africa, a bicycle can change a person's life and a community's future. A bicycle can mean access to essential services such as clean water, medical care and education. It's an invaluable vehicle that opens up a world of possibilities.
For the second year, The Bicycle Factory is in operation and is close to its goal of virtually building 5,000 bicycles for school children in Africa. There are only 1,000 bicycles to go, and we need your help!
The Bicycle Factory is open 24 hours a day at www.thebicyclefactory.ca. To help, simply enter the UPC code of any Cadbury product including Caramilk*, Dairy Milk*¸ Maynards*, Dentyne*, Stride*, Trident* and Halls* and watch it magically transform into a virtual bicycle part that will help build a new bicycle for a child in Africa. Each UPC code is equal to one bicycle part, and 100 UPC codes equal a bicycle. With your help, Cadbury will send 5,000 bicycles to Ghana, Africa. Hurry, the factory closes on November 14, 2010.
Look at your gum, three o'clock snack and your after-dinner treat in a whole new way.
As a result of your support, 5,000 new bicycles were delivered to communities in Ghana in 2009, to help change lives and provide much needed access to mobility. This innovative program is back and is set to send an additional 5,000 bicycles to Africa, but we need your help to meet our goal.
You have the power to make a difference!
