Make A Difference
Help Fund a Child-Size Bike

Here's a quick, cool way to make a difference at Old World Wisconsin! A kid-sized high wheel bicycle (stationary and safe but with real working pedals) is needed for the museum's new "Catch Wheel Fever" cycling exhibit. The grand opening is June 14, 2014.

If 100 people like YOU donate just $10 each, young visitors will be able to experience a moment in history. Think of the photo opportunities for moms, dads and grandparents. Imagine how well the little ones will sleep after a full day of fun Old World activities like cycling! Remember that all donations are tax deductible, and we'll send a receipt to make it easy at tax time. Join the effort! Help the Foundation buy a fun, hands-on, feet-on, unique kid-friendly high wheel bike for Old World Wisconsin.

P. S. To make a larger donation, or if multiple people per household wish to contribute, simply adjust the quantity to raise your donation in $10 increments, and thank you!
