KindRED Pride Foundation Announces Santa’s Bike Force 2020

December 2, 2020 (Orlando, Fla.) – The KindRED Pride Foundation is working with Santa’s Bike Force to inspire the community around the world to purchase a “first” bike for a deserving kid in your neighborhood or donate to the bike giveaway to be held at Joy Metropolitan Church on December 17, 2020.

Santa’s Bike Force, for the 17th year, has sent out a nostalgic “first bike” letter to family, friends, and colleagues each year at this time to inspire individuals to start their own Santa’s Bike Force in their community or purchase a bike either in person or online and give a very special gift to a kid for Christmas.

Just an idea…

OK…take a deep breath…slow down from the hectic Holiday “Busy Ness” and think back…way back.

Remember getting your first bike?

Remember how shiny and new it was?

Remember the feelings you had for the person who gave it to you…the loved one who put it together for you…taught you how to ride?

Remember your first taste of freedom as you wobbled down the driveway for the first time…training wheels and streamers and all?

My first bike…what a wonderful, happy day!

Just an idea?

What if…

You and everyone in your world bought a child their first bike this Holiday Season…a child that most likely would not get one this year…whether you know the child…whether the child is a stranger…doesn’t matter.

What if…

You ordered a bike on-line and had it delivered to a needy neighbor?

What if…

Your social club…your cul-de-sac…your place of worship…organized a last minute bike drive?

What kind of difference could we make this Season?


It’s last minute…I’m not organized…that takes work…so what?

Make it happen anyway!

It’s a lot of money…I’ve spent too much already…so what…the smile on the kid’s face will be worth it.

Make it happen anyway!

It’s a pain to get to the bike store…don’t you know how much traffic we have in our town…don’t you know how crazy people are in the stores this time of year…and the lines…so what…it’s a lifetime memory for some great kid.

Make it happen anyway!

Rules of the Game

There are no rules…do it anonymously…do it publicly…do it with your company…do it by yourself…buy one…buy 10…buy 1,000…doesn’t matter…just consider the idea of spreading this idea to everyone you know. Invite them to do the same…this is going to be fun.

2020 has been a challenging year for most of us.  However, we are still going to celebrate with a trip to the bike store…we invite you to join us for the fun.

This is our 17th year and it gets bigger and bigger every year.  Last year amazing Elves donated over $10,000.

The goal is to get your community involved and duplicate Santa’s Bike Force in YOUR area!

Locally, Santa is arriving here in Orlando at:

Joy MCC Church 2351 S. Ferncreek Avenue Orlando, Florida 32806 

We will be handing out bikes on Thursday, December 17th at 4:00 pm. 

If you are near Orlando…come join us!

Thanks to the KindRED Pride Foundation, Inc., 100% of your donation is tax deductible. You will receive a letter from GoFundMe regarding your donation.

It’s just an idea!

With sincere love and gratitude this Season and a special note to be safe,

Billy Looper and Tom Christ

PS: Share your story…how did it go…pictures of the kids…help this become an annual tradition? Put your story on Facebook …who knows where this could go? Just an idea…

PSS: If you are not able to get to the store, then please SHARE this email with your world…but also…

You can participate in 2 other ways…

  1. Just help spread the word by Sharing, Texting, Emailing, Liking, Pinning, Instagramming, Hashtagging, Tweeting, Tik Toking, Sending Smoke Signals…even telling someone in person (can you imagine?).
  2. Or go to Link Below and purchase a bike online or make a contribution and we will make sure it gets delivered to a needy child in your name.

You can help us kick off the giving season by making a kid’s Christmas wish for a new, shiny bike come true!

Just click the Donation link below:


We will go to the store and buy a bike and helmet in your honor. The package typically totals $100, but all contributions are appreciated.

Thanks again for being Santa’s Little Elf!
