Brothers BRANDON and GARRETT MORRIS of Los Angeles, pictured, are the latest intrepid bikers with a cause to leave Astoria on a cross-country trek. Their journey HOPE ON A BIKE is to increase awareness of the plight of the West African cocoa farmer ... (and) raise money for the development of a cocoa study center in Ekona, Cameroon, a program of PROJECT HOPE AND FAIRNESS.
I have always felt that there is something more to this world than what I experience in my protected Western lifestyle, Garrett wrote. In 2011, this feeling turned to reality when I visited Ghana with Dr. TOM NEUHAUS, my professor at Cal Poly and founder of Project Hope and Fairness.
During their journey this summer, the pair will stop at chocolate shops and companies, seeking their support. For information, or to donate to the cause or toward trip expenses, go to http://hopeonabike.webs.com
