Jim "Wolverine" DiTursi Donations

Rising Up for Jim ‘Wolverine’
******This was copied from MATT a close friend of Jim's*********


Friends & Family,

If your life changed in a split second and all of a sudden you were not able to provide for your family, home, & self – what would you do? No one ever thinks or prepares for such a life changing event. Rarely does a person consider that if in fact something should happen they would have an army of support behind them every step of the way to recovery.

A very dear Friend, Father, Brother, Son, & Loved one, Jim ‘Wolverine’ DiTursi, who has been very active in several groups such as the Houston GIXXERS, Clutch Crew, WFO and Motohouston was in a motorcycle accident on Sunday, January 5th 2013. Jim was left paralyzed from the chest down. Many of you who know Jim, know that he will do everything in his power to prove that he will walk and ride again, but this will take time.

We are seeking donations to assist Jim and his Family with medical and house bills that will certainly accumulate as he adjusts to this new life, and begins his journey on the road to recovery. Any donation will be the key to help provide Jim with the assistance and critical services he deserves. We hope that he can count on your support as we know he will truly appreciate it.

“You have the courage to live, fully and from the heart ♥
Every moment is precious, so give each moment the respect and attention it deserves…
Though life has its daunting challenges – YOU absolutely have the courage to face every one.” – Ralph Marston

From our hearts to yours - we Thank You for your time and consideration. Bless.

Online donations can be made @: http://www.paypal.com

Steps:
1. Login to your paypal account

2. Click tab at the top "Send Money"

3. Email address enter houstongixxers@gmail.com

4. enter the amount

5. Make sure you check under the Personal tab "Gift" - There is no fee

6. Continue


Sincerely,
Jim’s Motorcycle Family

If you have never met Jim he always has a smile on his face, eager to learn and eager to share. I have hung out with Jim many times are the track and a few times away from it. One of the really good guys in our community.

He is a survivor, he should not be alive but he is.

Keep your calendars open for April 14 BBQ @ West Alabama Ice House ~2pm-at least 9pm. I know it's a long time from now but it's to do it right. :-)
