Richard Bonanno of Rolling Wave Foundation named The Toothboss Smiling Neighbor
By: The Toothboss
"Richard is an inspiration. He repairs the bikes himself, using some of the donated bikes for parts. He has also expanded his giving from repaired bicycles to food, clothing and other items," said Dr. Wolfert. "His current effort of collecting school supplies for children in West Virginia. For that, he's a very worthy recipient of the Smiling Neighbor Award."
A self-employed carpenter, Bonanno unofficially began Rolling Wave Foundation out of a want to give to those less fortunate.
"It started with the bicycles and then you saw some of the basic needs people had that were not being met. So we expanded to toys, clothing and other items and we now send our donations to communities all over the country," said Bonanno.
Bonanno estimates he spends 30 to 35 hours per week repairing bikes and with other activities to do with Rolling Wave Foundation. "Once you start doing this stuff, giving, it's very addictive and you just want to do more."
In lieu of the usual honors for being selected a Smiling Neighbor—either a $50 gift card to Stockholders or a Sonicare Easy Clean model. Bonanno chose the gift card and received a $150 donation for the Rolling Wave Foundation.
"One of the best donations I've ever made and it's tax deductible,"
The Rolling Wave Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit. For more information on making a donation, private message Bonanno via his Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/
