Christmas was going to be very limited for the Briggs brothers. The two boys and their mother moved in early December; after paying utility deposits and other relocation expenses, there was little left to buy presents. The item at the top of 5-year-old Ayri’s wish list – a new bicycle – wouldn’t be under the tree on Christmas morning.
“I cried for a couple of days after hearing about the bikes,” said the boys’ mother, Ayrahel.
Ayrahel was touched by the generosity Bikes for Tykes showed her sons – and grateful that we didn’t experience a white Christmas. “Thank goodness the weather’s been nice,” Ayrahel remarked three days after Christmas. “I haven’t been able to get the boys off their bikes yet!”
