Christmas Spirit

My Mom challenged me to do something nice for someone on her birthday. Don't get me wrong, my wife was the first one to get something nice done to her. I felt like there was something else that I could do.

Many of you know that 99% of my photos on my blog are of someone riding a BMX bike. Just recently, a local BMX rider (Mike Aitken) suffered major head trauma while filming for a new BMX video CLICK HERE. There has been a lot of support from people in the BMX industry to help pay for his very expensive medical bills. Well, after having thought for awhile, and with some creative help from friends I came up with a cool idea to help out Mike. I'm going to be auctioning off all of his covers that he’s gotten from his BMX carrier thus far and present them in a nice frame. If everything goes right, I will be able to have Mike sign the covers.

It was amazing to see the support from RIDE BMX and BMX PLUS. Before I finished talking with Jeff from RIDE he already had them packaged and on the way. I made Ben from PLUS go through his garage to find one of the magazines. It was his personal copy. Thanks Ben Crockett, Jeff Zelinski, Eddie Buckley, and Carly Hopkins.
