"This is an amazing organization that has chapters all over the nation helping kids in abusive situations feel safe & protected. This group of amazing people travels to a child in need providing support out of the kindness of their hearts, & goes above & beyond to bring confidence back to children who have been hurt. As someone who experienced child abuse growing up, I can attest to how much an organization such as this group can make a difference.
Growing up I experienced abuse from my biological father, it started out mental and then turned physical. I was too scared to come forward about the abuse until Father’s day of 2006, when he had dumped me in the middle of the road outside of my uncle’s house after beating me for several hours, and told my mother and my stepdad he wanted nothing to do with me and disowned me.
Besides the abuse, one of the scariest things is having to explain what happened. And having police officers and CPS agents evaluate your injuries, and asking you to give them as much information about the incident as possible. This can go on for several weeks leading up to a court date if the parents decide to press charges. In my case, my biological dad walked away with a slap on the wrist due to some processing errors, when he should have been in jail for several years.
I wish this foundation would have been in place when I experienced all of this. But luckily I had the support of my mom and amazing stepdad, but not all kids have support like I did. I was also lucky enough to have an amazing therapist who gave me a stuffed animal, that quickly became my safety blanket and comforted me when I had nightmares and ptsd. Not a lot of people realize that kids will attach to items that bring them comfort, and Bikers Against Child Abuse provides items such as a photograph of the child with the members, to remind them that they are not alone and bring them comfort when they are frightened. They provide a second family, and an additional line of support.
My hope is to help assist them in raising money to continue growing their foundation, and open more chapters so that they can help more kids in need."
