Bikers Against Child Abuse International (BACA) exists with the intent to create a safer environment for abused children. They exist as a body of Bikers to empower children to not feel afraid of the world in which they live. In the video below, Badd Bob, Blade, Hammer and Doc P join “Emotional Mojo” to talk about their organization and what they do to protect childrenwho have been abused.
First, the guys explain the fitting connection between motorcycles, bikers and children, and how it makes for an incredible bonding experience. BACA members will pick a BACA child up from the bus, camp out in front of his or her home until the child feels safe, and even attend courtroom abuse cases with the child victims to help them feel more comfortable.
Perhaps the sweetest and most unexpected moment comes when Doc P demonstrates the importance of the stuffed teddy bears they give to each new BACA member. “If they become a BACA child, part of the ceremony is that we all — all these bikers standing around — take this bear and give it a hug in order to tell the child that we’re filling it with courage and love…And that if it ever gets empty or they ever need us back again, we’ll come back and fill it up again.” So incredible!
What an awesome reminder to never judge a book by its cover. Please SHARE this group and their incredibly powerful mission with your friends on Facebook!
