Since 2013, friends of the Fassinating Fassbender community have raised £3357 ($4658) on JustGiving.com. These monies have greatly helped TBE, but as a charity, they still need our help. This year, Talan provided an update which gives information about exactly how this year's fundraiser will help them.
This season we are running 13 events - 6 at Silverstone, 4 at Donington and 3 at RAF Odiham. We will have spaces for six riders at each event, which is double what we used to offer as the demand is so high. We have spent the past year assessing whether we can safely run six riders, along with the other criteria of equipment allocation. We have enough bikes, volunteers and area, but we are now short of riding equipment. With only 12 sets of full kit, we only have a limited number of sizes, so the FASSFASS fundraising will go to purchasing additional riders safety equipment - HELD two piece leathers, gloves and boots. - Talan, TBE
Isn't it great to know that there is a demand and a need for the services of TBE? So much so that they need more riding equipment in different sizes to protect their diverse clients. I know we can help them with this request for this year's fundraiser! Talan also provided links to these two new videos:
This short video is about a disabled mother who rode with TBE - Rise of a Rider
This video is a glimpse of a still work in progress 90-minute documentary on TBE titled, Dream the Impossible.
The Bike Experience is really growing, they just announced an American affiliate last month. So along with the new documentary, TBE is becoming more known, and more disabled persons interested in riding a motorcycle are requesting to experience this exhilarating opportunity.

The fundraiser begins today, and will end on April 1st. JustGiving.com finally added a Paypal option which will make donating so much easier for all of you. I made my donation and it was seamless, and secure. Since TBE is a British charity, if you are able to, please try to donate in British Pounds by selecting GBP as the currency of donation. We all take a hit on the currency exchange, especially Americans, when we convert to British Pounds. Our goal is £1000 and I really think we can do it this, especially since we were so close last year. Every single donation counts, no matter how small or how large. You all care enough about Michael Fassbender and TBE, so I thank you very much for your donation. As a reminder, all donations immediately go to The Bike Experience only. All those who donate will have their names added to a birthday message that will go to Michael via Troika! And remember, if you're shy and private and stuff, you can make your donation anonymous. Michael does receive these birthday announcements.
Please make your donation at the FF Just Giving page, and please share the link and this blog article with like minded friends. Let's do this!
