By partnering with school and community leaders, Elves & More is changing lives - one bike at a time. How? By providing a strong incentive to improve reading skills, behavior, and attendance for kindergarten - 3rd grade students.
Each child signs a contract with their teacher. If they meet the contract, they have earned a bike. Students who do not fulfill their contract do not receive a bike. While this is difficult, it also teaches valuable life lessons.  More...

Through 2013 Elves & More has delivered over 130,000 bicycles to underprivileged children.
In 2014 we will give away our 140 thousandth bicycle to a child in the Greater Houston Area.
To reach our goal and to continue changing children's lives one bike at a time we need your help. Each $65 donation buys a bicycle and helmet and gives one elementary school student a better chance of improving their reading skills and behavior, with a positive, direct, and lifelong impact. More...

What does that mean? In short:
1. At-risk children, 2. Education,
3. Intervention, 4. Health.   More...
Elves & More is committed to helping children get out of poverty. By partnering with schools, parents, and you we are able to provide bikes to students who meet their contract. To do this, we need your help. Please consider a tax-deductible donation. Every $65 allows us to help another student improve their reading skills.   More...
Our Core Team of volunteers give of themselves selflessly each year for two weeks averaging 14 hour days in an effort to get bikes into the hands of the children we serve. We SALUTE our Core team - without whom the program would not be successful.
