If you donate $30 for one helmet, Obsession will match it and your donation $60.

That $60 will be matched by the helmet company for a total value of $120 - all from your original donation!

The cause is Bikes for Tykes, an initiative that was brought to Vancouver 8 years ago by James Wilson, owner of Obsession Bikes in North Van.  They take in about 200 used bikes by donation, then they restore the bikes and distribute about 150 bikes through different Vancouver Charities for Under Privileged families during the holidays.  

Our goal is to raise enough money to buy helmets for EVERY bike being donated
