SB Middle Schoolers Ride 4 Rwanda

Santa Barbara Middle School students Harrison Gilman, Eliana Schiffer, and Sophia Phillips successfully raised $5,000 for Ride 4 Rwanda. The campaign raised funds for Rwandan coffee farmers to have bicycles to help transport their crops and make higher earnings. By promoting their project at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, they were able to meet Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt-giving the actors Ride 4 Rwanda jerseys.
