From the very beginnings of our nonprofit we’ve received donations in memory of lost loved ones. Sometimes it’s a loved one’s bicycle and sometimes it’s a monetary donation. Whatever it is, we treat that special donation with the respect and honor it deserves. We want to make sure our loved ones are never forgotten. Yesterday we received a message from a friend in our Huntington community. We were so moved and so incredibly honored by her request.
This is what she wrote.
I want to make a donation to Brett’s Bicycle Recycle in memory of a teen who died many years ago in a car accident. His name is Seth Baumgartner. He was 18 when he died just weeks before starting college. His birthday was just a few days ago. His mom’s name is Roberta. I just want her to know he has not been forgotten. I know how she misses him with every breath. Seth was her only child too. I like to do something as my birthday comes along. It distracts me from the idea of aging but I realize that aging is a privilege. Doing something to remember Seth and honor Brett seemed like a good thing to do.
Keep up the wonderful work!
Thank you for your donation 💙
