Fair Trade Friends: Fuller Center for Housing

Fuller Center for Housing

Café Campesino has welcomed the chance to be a sponsor of the 2009 Fuller Center for Housing Bicycle Adventure, a 1300 mile bike ride from Michigan to Florida. The ride will raise awareness and funds (the goal is $200,000) to further the good work of The Fuller Center: to provide simple, decent housing around the world for those in need.

As you might know, The Fuller Center for Housing was formed here in Americus, GA, by Millard Fuller and his wife, Linda, the founders of Habitat for Humanity. Millard passed away earlier this year and we know he’ll be missed as a cheerleader for this event. But his enthusiasm lives on and Linda’s work continues. We’re glad to pitch in some help and we encourage you to follow the bike adventure atwww.fullercenterbiketrip.com.

The ride begins on July 10th in St. Joseph, Michigan, and concludes on August 16th at Shell Pt. Beach, Florida. 1300 miles of adventure. Ride on!

Friends and supporters gather on the morning of July 8th as the bike trip van and trailer prepares to leave for the starting line in Michigan
