Help a Biker (in the bicycle sense) Out!

I know you're all dying to read my catfish post (which I'm working on), but more important right now is that I have a friend in need of some sponsorship help. He's a wonderful and genuine spirit that I came in contact with at my Hebrew bootcamp this summer, and he's a bike-riding maniac. So he's taking part in the 2009 New York Jewish Environmental Bike Ride and here's Getzel's spiel:
Over Labor Day weekend, I’m planning to be one of over 200 riders in Hazon’s 2009 Jewish Environmental Bike Ride! We will ride 100 miles into Manhattan over two days. I have taken on this challenge to help raise environmental awareness, and to add the Jewish community's voice to calls for environmental responsibility. The money raised from this Ride will be used to support Hazon’s year-round work with food in the Jewish community. The funds are also distributed to support innovative environmental projects here and in Israel. You can read more information about where the money will go at www.hazon.org.
How can you help? Visit his page and donate a little bit of cash. Make it something memorable, maybe $18 to symbolize life (חי)! Or maybe a multiple? Either way, I know the economy is tough, but sometimes the warm fuzzies are worth it if you can put a few bucks toward something outstanding.
