Last year, Inked Iron created the Hooligans for Hurricane Relief effort, and with support from Roland Sands Design, Bell Powersports, Alta Motors, Hot Bike and Street Chopper, raised “approximately $5,000 in funds to aid in hurricane relief in Houston, TX, Florida and the Bahamas through United Way and Waves for Water.”
This year, they’re hoping to raise $10,000, and in addition to collecting funds for hurricane relief are also raising money to support Cal Fire and people affected by the California wildfires. You can donate directly or purchase shirts and stickers here.
We’re re-igniting our efforts to raise money in support of hurricane relief, and excited to offer you back something for giving. It all started with the official Hooligans for Hurricane Relief t-shirt, “Come Hell or High Water.” Designed by Matt Allard of Inked Iron, in partnership with Bonnier Motorcycle Group’s very own Street Chopper and Hot Bike Magazine, and has since turned into a movement officially supported by Roland Sands Design, Bell Powersports, Icon, Law Tigers, Tobacco Motorwear Company & Shinebox Mfg. Co. Together we can help bring relief to those in need.
In addition, we’ve added stickers and the Hooligans for Hurricane Relief signature logo shirts.
All proceeds go directly to groups we trust to get help to those in need. We’re proud to be able to give back to the communities that suffered the most during our recent hurricane season and we’ve partnered with Waves 4 Water and United Way to make sure the funds are being put to good use.
Expect to see a raffle firing up soon to help raise funds, featuring gear from Bell Powersports, Icon Motosports, Shinebox Manufacturing Co., Tobacco Motorwear, Speed Craft and others. There will also be new shirt design to memorialize the 2018 effort.
Update (10/23/18): the raffle is now live.
Matt Allard, Mr. Inked Iron himself, is a trusted friend of CityBike, an all-around good dude, and an example of small moto-business men and women working for positive causes. In addition to Hooligans for Hurricane Relief, Matt and Inked Iron supported our Ride Friday Give Back event in 2017. And Inked Iron’s iconic designs are omnipresent at moto shows, and I swear I’ve seen the Handlebar Field Guide in damn near every bike shop I’ve been in, not to mention the men’s restroom at See See in Portland.
If you’re looking for a way to help support hurricane and/or fire relief efforts, consider helping Hooligans for Hurricane Relief reach their $10,000 goal.
