Former volleyball player-turned-TV host Gretchen Ho is lending a helping hand to those in need by giving away 50 bikes.

In a social media post, Ho said she is asking interested people by answering a form on why they deserve the freebie.

“Because a bike can spell the difference between keeping a livelihood or not,” said Ho, who played for the Ateneo Lady Eagles in her collegiate days.

She also encouraged people to nominate anyone they know who deserve a bike, which has become an essential mode of transportation following the months-long quarantine restrictions brought by the coronavirus pandemic.

Apart from giving away bikes, Ho is also launching a fund drive to procure more bikes to give away.

“Let’s empower people to continue fighting for their dreams by giving them a ride!” she said.
