What Is San Juan Howler And How Does It Help Nicaraguan Nonprofits?
Nicaraguan Nonprofits - In our previous San Juan Howler articles, two charities were briefly mentioned-Comunidad Connect and Fundacion Tierra-as benefiting from Howler donations. They tackle social and environmental projects impacting Nicas (short for Nicaraguans). Howler founder Larry Thraen's goal is, "to offer a great race, for a great cause."
Nicaraguan Nonprofits - It is surprising to see that this comparatively rich nation doesn't have the basic facilities which are so common in other countries. Raising funds for both agencies has been Howler's goal and will be for its 3rd Mountain Bike Race.Howler Bike Racing Rocks Much Needed Social Change
1) Howler Bike Racing helps to usher in a new era of social change
, and is your best choice for all your riding sports needs! Do you want to help the planet while enjoying the sports you love? Take a ride with the Howler! Here in Nicaragua and other cash poor locales, Howler and other similar sports are actually very dynamic means of bringing about social change and empowerment.
2) By sponsoring Howler Mountain Bike Race,
you will promote your business while helping to create a worthwhile and constructive past time for many people. If you're looking for ways to expand the strategic marketing branch of your company, you may consider sponsoring events and then using those donations as a tax write off. Nicaraguan Nonprofits - If you're looking for a reliable and cost efficient way to expand your sports division, check out Howler.
3) Howler is just loaded withopportunities to participate in volunteer activities
. If you are looking to volunteer and want to incorporate a great working vacation, check out the latest buzz about "VolunTourism". By encouraging your participation in the Howler, your family can vacation together and support a good cause. Celebrate Christmas by helping nonprofits in San Juan del Sur.
You could ask in local bike shops to see if they would donate helmets or other safety gear. It did when participating in Howler 2009. After the race, they both bestowed their bikes on lucky local recipients.The vision of Comunidad Connect is:
"Cooperation, communication, unity and support between Nicaraguanforeigners and residents living in or visiting Nicaragua. Nicaraguan Nonprofits - By logging onto Comunidad Connect
, two disparate communities have been brought together. (The native people of Nicaragua and the foreigners) This entity conducts community activities such as recycling, financial literacy, sports and volunteerism in and around the San Juan del Sur.Fundacion Tierra (Nicaragua)
Parents funded a mud hut, and they saved 25 kids from having to walk 3 kilometers to school, which was built with Fundacion Tierra
. Cow manure, sand, clay and bamboo are used to make adobe walls.
Nicaraguan Nonprofits - You can contribute by getting others to participate to. You don't have to be a racer to volunteer you can also help with setup or clean up. We would also love to get to know your experiences at the San Juan Howler Mountain Bike Race so that we may share them with others. Good or bad will only help us improve it for locals, you and the racers. Drop me (Larry) a line here at Bodhin Adventure Services
