Marilisa Bike by Jesse Miller.
Marilisa is an intern at Reba Place Fellowship an intentional Christian community in Evanston, IL. She is part of a team starting The Recyclery, a non-profit organization that fixes up old bikes and sells them for a low price. They hope eventually to have workshops and after-school programs to teach bicycle maintenance and safety and promote environmental awareness.

In the photo, Marilisa is helping a neighborhood boy fix a bicycle so he could take it home. Photographer Jesse Miller tells me, "Getting a non-profit going takes a lot of energy, but seeing the joy of a kid receiving a bicycle and seeing his interest in fixing it makes it worth it."
