Bixby's new phone
$1,750 of $895 goal
I've been following Bixby and her travels for years since they embarked. When I visited them this last week in St. Augustine, FL... the road had gotten a little more challenging for them. Their equipment is getting old and some of it is really acting up.
Bixby works hard to promote animal adoption, the supporters and businesses that host them, and engage with the wonderful online following that keeps them going. That work is primarily done via a cell phone while on the road, not to mention navigation and such. Their phone is toast. Burnt, unbuttered toast.
I'm kicking this off to help get Bixby a Samsung Galaxy S7 Active for Christmas, and have made the first $101 donation. Every single penny donated goes to the rescue pup and her human toward this gift (minus the gofundme charges). Bixby's human will get the phone and activate it in FL this week.
Helping to get a new phone ensures that they can continue to effectively promote the animal shelters they visit and their cause, keep us all up to date with their adorable pictures and posts, and will keep them safe out there on the highways and biways!
Bixby's awesome human sent the following message to pass along to you all:
Thank you so much for making it possible to purchase a new phone and thank you to everyone who donated and shared this campaign to help us out as we continue our journey to help local animal shelters across this country. The extra money raised will help with expenses on the road as well as some well deserved treats for my furry best friend. I’m really excited for a few things that are happening right now and I’m thrilled to say that in this New Year “Where's Bixby” is going to really start making a mark and growing into something that really helps lots of shelters. I hope you’ll continue to follow along on our journey as we try to make our mark, making the world a slightly better place for both the shelters we impact and the humans that simply smile as we ride by. Merry Christmas everyone and a very sincere Thank You from a man, his adorable furry companion and yes…their Rubber Safety Chicken.

Right now, the trio is stranded in Melbourne, FL waiting on bike repairs (parts en route with repairs pending). The extra donations above the initial cell phone target will definitely go to immediate use in getting them back on the road and to the next shelter!
Thank you all for all that you have done, and continue to do. I spoke with Bixby's human today, and as most of you can see on Facebook, they are all simply awestruck and the generosity and love you all have shared.
From the bottom of my heart, to all of you that have contributed, and those that will, thank you for helping me help them! Happy Holidays!
Victor, thank you so much for this amazing gift you've given us. To think that a chance meeting in the deserts of Southwest Texas as I was stumbling around searching and desperate for water and you were there with your case of water and saved my butt. 4 years later another chance meeting in St. Augustine and you've really inspired us to take what we're doing to a whole new level and when you saw an opportunity to help us out, you took it and kinda saved us again. Thank you so very much man and I look forward to a long lasting friendship and exciting future for Wheres Bixby in the years to come.
