It’s the opportunity of a lifetime — own one of Bruce Willis' motorcycles! The action film star is taking five motorcycles out of his garage and donating them for an online auction to benefit veterans and wounded combat troops through the Boot Campaign, a 501c3 non-profit military appreciation and support campaign based in Texas.
This limited charity auction will run from December 2012 through August 2013 on www.charitybuzz.com. Born on a military base in Germany, Bruce Willis has a long-standing commitment to supporting U.S. Forces.
“I wanted to use my bikes in a way that would benefit our military service members, and I am thankful to have found the Boot Campaign as the catalyst for using my bikes in a way that will give back to our country’s true heroes,” said Bruce Willis. “These bikes have been a lot of fun to ride, and my hope is they can do a lot of good for our veterans.”
The first of Bruce Willis’ five donated motorcycles will be auctioned online starting on December 6, 2012. The bikes will be released for auction every two months with the final charity auction in August 2013. Each bike’s online auction will last a minimum 30 days. Auction guidelines and additional details are posted on the site www.charitybuzz.com/12days.
