Motorcycle Angel Foundation: Just In Time For Summer
Summer activities are vastly approaching: The Official Motorcycle Angels, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is an organization that raises funds for motorcycle riders with serious injuries & stresses the importance of riding and driving education
By: Melissa Zavadil
The sport or hobby of motorcycling is a very dangerous sport or leisure activity. Riders often get hurt with no one to turn to for help in times of serious crisis. It is well known that “after” an accident typically it is up to the friends, family and fellow riders to pull together in order to gather funds to help injured riders. Motorcycle Angels is there to help facilitate the efforts and monetary donations allowing the family, rider, dependents or others to focus on the healing aspects and less on the financial strain.
The Official Motorcycle Angels was founded to raise money for injured motorcycle riders, research into safe technologies and education for safe riding techniques. It is Motorcycle Angels vision to support motorcycle sports both in technological advances that support safe product technology, education and funding for riders in serious crisis caused by motorcycles.
As a 501 (c)3, tax deductible organization, 100% of all cash donations go directly to injured motorcycle riders without any hidden administrative fees. Motorcycle Angels is different from the majority of similar organizations that pull out fees and give only a portion of their donations to injured riders.
The original founder of The Official Motorcycle Angels can be traced to Melissa Zavadil of Littleton, Colorado. A highly active motorcycle enthusiast and mother of three (whom all ride dirtbikes.) Melissa was a professional sports photographer and saw the need for a “union” of some sorts in the professional motorcycling industry but, understood that that concept was most likely not going to form. Melissa designed several angels that could be sold in an effort to raise money for down riders in 2005, and could be viewed as a “motorcycle guardian angel” looking over the rider. She then decided to sell the motorcycle angels to raise money for seriously injured riders.
Assistance awards are based on the severity of injury, number of dependents and the applicant's financial situation. The Official Motorcycle Angels also takes into consideration the individual's involvement in and/or contribution to the sport of riding motorcycles.
"The Fund focuses on those individuals who ride and dedicate their life to it, building a motorcycling support group in an all out effort and joining all motorcycle style riders in their unique Passion." said Melissa Zavadil, President of Motorcycle Angels ©.
