I could put something really witty here if I wanted.

Bikers Against Child Abuse

If you know of a child in need of protection from physical and emotional abuse, or you're looking for a worthwhile charity to support, you might give a call to your local Bikers Against Child Abuse chapter. BACA is a fraternity of bikers that have organized to provide support and protection to abused children. They adopt the children into their biker family and lend financial support to provide therapy, toys, clothing and anything else they might need. They attend court proceedings on behalf of the children, provide "biker escorts" if the family needs to run errands but doesn't feel safe to go alone. The kids are given their own vest, patch, stickers and a group photo with their new biker friends. The children are given these items to send a message to abusers and bullies: "I am not alone, and you don't want to mess with my family."
You just gotta love this, my friends.

This is awesome. There's a big biker toy rally somewhere near here once a year. It's a pretty cool sight to see tons of bikers with toys strapped to the back of there bikes roaring through town. Whatever works right?

That toy rally sounds like a great event. Just when you feel you're about to lose faith, items like these come along to remind you that life ain't a lost cause just yet . . .

We have the toy rally up here too! It's so much fun to watch them all going by.

I always worry I'll get snatched up and donated.
