To solve our maintenance problems stopping us from reaching more veterans, we need to raise $20,000 to pay for the DMV Bond Fee to have our Forgotten Not Gone Specialty License plate approved. We need your commitment and support to reach the goal.
We’re not government funded. We rely on supporters like you to support the programs that make the most significant difference in veterans’ lives! We are asking supporters to make a $5 pledge to purchasing our Forgotten Not Gone Branded DMV Specialty License plate! When you pledge to purchase, you also get to vote for your favorite Forgotten Not Gone DMV Specialty License plate!
Since 2013 We have grown from 2 recumbent trikes to now maintaining a fleet of over 40 different types of Recumbent / Velomobile Trikes that require daily maintenance to keep serviceable and available for our Veterans to ride.
Our Current Problem is keeping up with the demand and maintenance cost. Our fleet is now too Big for Volunteers to maintain this demand and we require Skilled laborers capable of servicing our E-Trikes which require cpu programming . Local Bike shops charged us $75 Plus Hourly for labor fees alone plus parts and can take a week to get around to scheduling us in for repairs.
During these times of awaiting repairs due to lack of funds or Skilled laborers our trikes sit collecting dust instead of giving a Veteran joy getting out the house. Social connections are an important source of fun, pleasure, sense of security, quality of life and stability, all of which play into maintaining good physical and emotional health.
Help Us Solve our #1 Problem holding us back from increasing our capacity to reach More Veterans proactively!
- Step 1 Donate $5 Today to help us pay for the $20,000 DMV Bond fee required to have a #FNG Specialty License Plate approved.
- Step 2 Once Bond fee paid and DMV Plates approved purchase your Forgotten Not Gone plates at your local DMV
- Step 3 Help us reach 5,000 Nevada residents to do the same
What is the impact?
With 5,000 Nevada plates purchased through this licence plate campaign it will approximately net Forgotten Not gone an annual budget of 100k to #FundTheMission. 100% of the proceeds will go towards hiring and training our Veterans as E-trike Mechanics, responsible for maintaining our trikes to be available for riding on a daily basis. The proceeds will also cover lease space to operate a Trike Shop where we will meetup and launch our daily rides.
