Our Kickstarter Campaign launches June 20th. Save the date and help us empower more kids!

Posted by Scott and Jannine Fitzgerald (Creator)

We have something important that we’re about to share with you and the rest of the world, but we REALLY need your help!  

Before we ask for it, here is the link to our new children's podcast, The World Of Buddy Pegs, to give you a taste of the character ecosystem we are creating.  

On June 20th we are taking a huge leap forward with the launch of our Kickstarter campaign for Buddy Pegs, Taking the Lead. This hardcover, beautifully illustrated children's book will tell the story of how the main animal characters from our first book B Is For Bicycles go on to open the bike shop Buddy Pegs... in the town of Spokesville of course!

 The book will focus on the values of self confidence, resilience, and freedom that bike riding delivers; as well as the message of how important local bike shops are to communities.  

You can help us in one of four ways, whichever works best for you:  

1.CONTRIBUTE ON DAY ONE! We'll have limited VIP bonuses ready for the first backers to our campaign when we go live on June 20th! Although we haven’t gone live with our link, we’d LOVE to know if we can count on you for a contribution. Remember, no amount is too small, and every single dollar counts. Simply respond to this email by typing 'WE ARE IN' in the Subject line to let us know that we can count you and so we can send you a reminder once we go live on June 20th! :)  

2. WRITE ABOUT US! - If you have a blog or write for any news outlet, big or small, we would really appreciate an interview, helping us to tell our story of how we went from being bike shop owners to media company owners. Respond to this email to book an interview slot. We also can provide social media assets.  

3. TELL US your favorite kid bike riding stories! - Do you have a bike story we can share with our online communities? Why do you and your kids love bikes and bike riding? Anything you can tell us about your/families love of bike riding, why you signed up for our newsletter, and what kind of content you love the most from us would greatly help us to give you MORE.  

and last but not least...  

4. SHARE US on social media! Go ahead and follow us on Twitter @bisforbicycles , Instagram @buddypegs or Facebook BisforBicycles, and you can simply retweet, comment on, or share one of our recent posts with your community.  

Our goal is to spread the message of empowering kids through the power of the bicycle to inspire them to get outside, be independent, fall down and get back up; and most of all, build meaningful shared family adventures through cycling, where lifelong memories are made.  

We hope to hear from you soon, and thanks again for being a part of our community!

Thank you so very much,  

Scott and Jannine "ready to launch" Fitzgerald
