Lime wrapped 20 of their e-bikes and e-scooters in Melbourne, revenue to be donated to Bridging the Gap Foundation

    Lime has partnered with Bayadherra, founded by proud Aboriginal Yorta Yorta brother and sister Luke and Siena Tieri, to commission a one-of-a-kind digital artwork to wrap 20 of their e-bikes and e-scooters across Melbourne to raise money for Bridging the Gap Foundation.

    Lime will be donating all proceeds from each ride taken on the 20 vehicles in Melbourne to Bridging the Gap Foundation across a two-week period. Riders can simply find a vehicle featuring the artwork, ride as usual and Lime will do the rest. 

    As one of Australia’s leading Indigenous charities, Bridging the Gap Foundation’s purpose is to address the nine-year gap in life expectancy between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. The Foundation focuses on health, education and employment pathways for young people in order to tackle the existing inequalities for Aboriginal people. 

    Lime is honoured to have commissioned the talented Luke and Siena of Bayadherra, and have Bridging the Gap Foundation on board as our charitable partner. We worked closely with Bayadherra to produce an artwork that showcases the connection to the land and the environment our riders have as they travel across Melbourne.

    We expect a significant donation to be made to Bridging the Gap and are proud that the funds will help support the incredible work of the foundation in aiding existing inequalities in health, education and employment opportunities for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.”

    To further support Bridging the Gap Foundation beyond this campaign, and to help be a good partner to the communities in which they serve,  Lime has signed the foundation on as a Lime Hero partner for the foreseeable future. Lime Hero is Lime’s community empowerment programme that allows riders to round up the cost of their rides to support a community organisation in their city. 

    The funds raised by this generous partnership with Lime will help Aboriginal children to grow up with the same opportunities in life as every other Australian. The fact that Lime is also supporting two young Indigenous artists at Bayadherra gives the partnership added significance.

    We hope the people of Melbourne feel a connection to their art and are inspired to find out more about Bridging the Gap Foundation’s role in providing opportunities and improved outcomes for Indigenous youth.
