Mar 15, 2016 James Marshall Benefit and Auction
From the forum on 3/15:
Hey guys, I usually just post on vitalmx but I am doing a drawing to benefit James Marshall and I heard there were some fans of his that post here. I figured I would share what I am trying to auction off with you guys
I came up with this idea when I found my childhood Mcgrath replica helmet in my parent's attic and saw that James Marshall was trying to raise money for equipment that he needs now that he is paralyzed. His story hits close to home because I broke my back when I was younger and almost ended up paralyzed. I also work in healthcare too and see how much of a struggle it is
I contacted Caleb Mireau of CM designs https://www.instagram.com/_cmdesigns_/ because I knew he was a 90's moto fan boy like me. He painted a stabilizer and moto ace visor to match and made the helmet look glorious. I was going to simply do an auction at first but then realized it isn't really fair to just let it go to the person that is willing to spend the most money. (And I think I can raise more money this way)...So now I decided we are doing a raffle, and the money will go directly to James because it will be based on donations to his gofundme page.
For each $20 donation to his page you can have your name placed in the raffle, I will draw a name on March 31st. Or we might push the date back further if everyone agrees to. I originally was going to end it on February 29th but everyone that participated said to push it back just so we could raise more money. Put your name and screen name and and houstonmotocross.com in the message when you donate so I can keep track of everyone that donates. Good luck! I hope it goes viral in someway throughout the moto community.
