Sons Of Anarchy - Boot Campaign
I think I am one of the few "motorcycle fans" that has yet to see Sons Of Anarchy.
You see, everyone we know that has a bike, or has had a bike, or knows bikers has told us that we have "got to see" SOA. We just haven't watched yet...
Key word... YET
I hate that so many Motorcycle Clubs get bad names because you have some that think they are bad...
but for the majority, they are good... At least in my opinion...
When Marc first joined a MC, one of the boys asked why he joined a "gang" and if he was going to get all sorts of "gang tattoos" (Marc already has tat's) It was quite funny, seeing that even at his age, he was associating a MC with "gang." We started telling him about it not being a gang, but a brotherhood...
I am proud to tell you about how some of the stars of Sons of Anarchy teamed up with the Boot Campaign for the second annual boot ride and rally on August 26th in California...
If you are not familiar with the Boot Campaign, visit their site and learn more... I have to say, before SOA teamed up with them, I had never heard of them.. BUT, as an ARMY wife, I am glad to know about it now.. Not to mention if we ever have an extra $100 laying around, I totally want a pair of the boots :)
Here are a few images from the Boot Campaign Ride and Rally with a few stats from the event:

I told you all motorcycle clubs aren't bad! See?
They do tons of great things for the area and for different charities! The MC that Marc is part of will be doing a bike ride soon with the donations and proceeds to help with a local children's shelter in our area.
