Sarah Quinn with some of the hundreds of bikes collected.
Hello and happy new year! Once again, this generous community has helped Bicycles for Humanity Charleston (B4H) by continuing to donate bicycles and raise funds for shipping the containers to Africa. Your contributions totaled $5,600. Your willingness to give and share for the past three years has raised $16,200 and 1,078 bicycles to date.
New this year is collecting usable sneakers, sandals, etc — any shoe that could be used in Africa. Shoes are a wonderful filler in the bike containers and are desperately needed in these remote villages. You may drop the shoes at my front door anytime. Please continue to keep those bikes coming, and your financial assistance is always needed and greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Did you miss the bird walk on North Beach last Saturday morning? It started with an email sent last Friday mid-day from Ed Konrad to “SeabrookIslandBirders@googlegroups.com” and resulted with 14 SIB members enjoying a great morning of birding the next day.
Would you like to communicate information about birding on Seabrook Island to others who may be interested? Would you like to receive these types of communications?
If so, you may want to join the other 45 members of SIB who are part of SIB’s “Google Group”. It’s easy! To sign up for SIB’s Google Groups – click here and then click on “Subscribe to this group”.

Check out a note from Liz below:
Fitness drives me to be a better person each and every day, and in return it has helped me to become the best personal trainer I can be. Helping someone perform a new movement, reach a new goal, or hit a personal record gives me the most rewarding feeling. Fostering a sense of accomplishment for others shows me that my work is creating a positive influence in someone else’s life.
I strive to help my clients aspire to be the best version of themselves. I want to push them out of their comfort zones and eliminate their fears about trying new things, help them set new goals they never even knew they had and empower them to know they can do anything they set their minds to. I believe health and fitness is a key to a happy and healthy life and I want to share that with everyone I meet.
