woom recently learned about an Austinite, Juan Soto, who, through the pandemic, founded 100 Bikes for Kids, an organization that refurbishes used bikes for children in need. Juan learned about an opportunity to serve the students at the Texas School for the Deaf but did not have the bikes to support them.
To make this wish come true, we partnered with the team at Returning the Favor, a series on Facebook watch hosted by Emmy award-winning Mike Rowe that finds remarkable people making a difference in their communities. woom donated 50 woom bikes to Juan for this cause, and an additional $5,000 was donated to Juan's non-profit on woom's behalf. Juan was surprised with the bikes on this episode of Returning the Favor.
