Bad Boy, Bad Boy, Whatcha Gonna Do


I like a tatted up guy as much as the next girl, but I like these bad boys most of all: rough riders with hearts of gold.

They come out in full force – sometimes an entire gang at once – to meet children who are victims of child abuse.  Signaling their arrival with booming exhaust pipes, skull caps, and long beards, they’re a scary bunch.  But that’s the point – they’re using a bad reputation for good.

According to one article, “Anytime, anywhere, for as long as it takes the child to feel safe, these leather-clad guardians [...] use their intimidating image to even the playing field for a child who has been hurt.”

They’ll do things like stand guard outside a child’s home all night if she’s had a nightmare; accompany a child to testify against an attacker; take a child to school if he’s afraid and wait until he’s safely inside.  They are bad-ass bodyguards who mean business.

If you like their organization as much as I do, please consider making a donation to BACA (Bikers Against Child Abuse) as part of your holiday charitable giving this year.
