Thank YOU Justin and Project Safer for putting this giveaway together and for making a difference!
Repost via @just.j.rod - "Winner of the bike raffle, Pablo from Bakersfield (who strangely enough looks like he could be one of my Tios haha) Thanks for everyone who bought a ticket. I really appreciate the support! Over $4,000 was raised, I'll be giving the money to a family who lost everything in the fire this week. Video coming soon!"
