The Lion’s Cause
If you’re on our mailing list, follow us on Twitter, or like our Facebook page, you might’ve seen a bit of activity regarding Team Anbassa. So what is it? Team Anbassa (you can find the origin of the name here) is a crazy group of guys riding 306 miles from Monroe, WA to Post Falls, ID between July 9th and 13th. Why? To help a disabled young woman in Ethiopia live her life a little easier. Tsehaynesh Digo is a young woman living in Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia. When she was a child, she contracted polio. This left her without the use of her legs, forcing her to crawl through the dirt using her hands. Despite this, she always has a smile. Through the years we’ve gotten to know her and help her with her condition. Through the help of one of our partners, she is now able to walk. Right now, she needs a handicap accessible bathroom, kitchen, and a hand peddle bike to get to market (and you can read more here).
Team Anbassa’s goal is $6000. This will cover the building and shipping the bike, building the kitchen, building the bathroom, and all of the associated costs. But they can’t do it without you!
