Angels on Motorcycles Bring Christmas Magic to Abused Kids
The revving of motorcycle engines filled the air. Children’s faces lit up and their laughter threatened to drown out even the most powerful bike. According to Bobby Lasseter, who is a member of this very special committee, the bikers just wanted to “take (the children’s) minds off of the troubles that they have been through.” And they did- with a little Christmas magic. As part of the 28th annual Austin Motorcyclists Toy Run, motorcyclists in Central Texas braved the rain recently to make sure that abused children in the community would receive a touch of Christmas magic this year. It’s angels like these who help break down stereotypes, give it their all, and bring hope into the hearts of children.
Lighting the Darkness with a Bit of Christmas Magic
For many of these children, suffering has simply been a way of life. Until recently, safe shelter, warm beds, fresh meals, kind hearts, and of course Christmas gifts, had all been wishes that were left unfulfilled. But thanks to these bikers and the individuals, organizations and businesses that support them, the children at the Helping Hand Home in Austin, Texas will all see a very special glow this Christmas. As hundreds of bikers arrived to deliver gifts of kindness and generosity, it was possibly their presence, and not even the presents, that mattered most.
