Our Silent Auction presented during our after summer weekend fundraiser to ‘Get X in Some Wheels’

 Our after summer weekend fundraiser at

Carrabba’s Cares Days in Brookfield, September 17 & 18, 2016.

Carrabbas of Brookfield is a proud sponsor of Xzavier = Survivor = Heroes

Carrabba’s is hosting our fundraiser to get Xzavier a wheelchair accessible van.

There are many advocates against distracted driving and all of these players are in the game because they have lost someone they love or have been injured severely by a distracted driver.

Xzavier survived and Xzavier’s mom wants to prevent another child from ever having to go through what Xzavier goes through on a daily basis. Together this mother and son dynamic duo have made appearances to schools, driving schools, colleges, radio and TV shows.

Their PSA in the ‘It Can Wait’ campaign went national and the documentary by Werner Herzog ‘From One Second to the Next’ featured Xzavier and his family.

Xzavier has been without transportation since the fall of 2014.  He has still been able to make a couple of appearances whenever temporary transportation is arranged.

100% of the proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards purchasing a wheelchair accessible van for the Mighty X-Man to get around again.

Many thanks to Cindy Shumacher for all her hard work in the 'Don't text 4 X' campaigns.

Thank you first and foremost to Cindy Shumacher  for your friendship and support through the years.  Your work putting these fundraisers together are appreciated more than we can ever say.

A big thank you to Astrid Truit for your artistic contributions and your support and friendship through the years.

We couldn’t do it without you ladies.

f I can convey just one idea to someone reading my story, it would be to believe in yourself, walk with integrity, work hard and trust in God. And maybe your life won’t turn out exactly how you were expecting or hoping it to be; but maybe, just maybe, it will be so much better than you could have ever imagined!

Spokeswoman Valetta Bradford and friend on a rare Girls Day Out.

Xzavier’s mom Valetta has turned herself into a spokeswoman against distracted driving because Valetta never wants what happened to Xzavier to ever happen to another child.  She wants to make each day the best day she can make it for Xzavier. Acquiring a new wheelchair accessible van will return some normalcy to Xzavier’s routine.

Getting back out and making appearances is the main goal for acquiring a wheelchair accessible van.  Meeting Xzavier and Valetta is a profound moment in any driver’s life, a moment that might give a driver pause before continuing on in a determined course of distracted driving.

The wheelchair accessible van fundraiser will be held at Carabbas in Brookfield, Wisconsin

Xzavier also needs transportation to doctor appointments, therapy, play dates, and family outings that will allow Xzavier to have a life outside of his home.

100% of the proceeds for this fundraiser will go to acquiring the wheelchair accessible van.  Your donations are tax deductible.

Xzavier’s World

Xzavier is my hero!

Xzavier’s world is a very different world than the world he came from.  Before a distracted driver ran him over in the confounds of the Lee Elementary crosswalk he could walk.  Now he moves around in a world accessible only by wheelchair.

http://xzavierwascrossingthestreet.wordpress.com

Click on the link above to read Xzavier’s story.  

Xzavier cannot survive in this world without his respirator and the staff it takes to monitor and maintain that respirator.

Xzavier Davis-Bilbo has to live on a respirator because a distracted driver struck him in the confounds of Lee Elementary school four years ago.

Xzavier’s world has less money in it than the world he came from because his mother Valetta Bradford had to quit her managerial position in corporate America to become Xzavier’s full-time caretaker.   No way was her son going to be institutionalized.  Valetta is grateful that Xzavier survived with his mind intact.  He has very severe injuries, but he is still Xzavier and that is the most important thing.

Xzavier’s world is his family.  Without the family, Xzavier would not have the best day he can possibly have each day and that is their number one priority that Xzavier has the best day.

Last year, the wheelchair accessible van for Xzavier finally broke down completely.  Fundraising efforts to replace that second hand van were underwhelming.  As of the time of this writing, Xzavier must depend upon public transportation, a feat arduous for an able bodied person.  A super heroic feat for Xzavier every day.

Xzavier Daivs-Bilbo is an advocate against distracted driving.

Xzavier and his mom Valetta are advocates against distracted driving.  This dynamic duo makes appearances to young and future drivers everywhere and their campaign ‘Don’t text 4 X’ is a message available on-line around your world.

We are trying to promote the ‘Don’t text 4 X’ campaign.  Time is crucial.  Valetta and Xzavier are strong.  They have been on this campaign for over four years now.  Valetta formed The X-Man Foundation, a federally recognized non-profit and is classified as an educational non-profit.  The X-Man Foundation strives to educate drivers to the real consequences of distracted driving with an emphasis on texting.

You have heard this message many times in your world.  Think about the drivers who get to meet Xzavier and Valetta in person.  Their’s is such a powerful presence that after meeting them the odds are in favor of these young drivers becoming better drivers than the ones we have now out there causing collisions because those drivers are playing on a device from behind the wheel.

Meeting Valetta and Xzavier is a powerful moment for those lucky enough to be invited into their world for a brief appearance.   We need drivers to have a profound moment before they get behind the wheel of a car and engage in determined distracted driving.  Those phones are a compelling temptation.  We have an antidote.

Spokeswoman Valetta Bradford doesn’t want what happened to her son to ever happen to another child.

‘Don’t text 4 X’

If you would like to donate to The X-Man Foundation or contact Valetta for an appearance or just to leave an encouraging word, this link will provide several channels to contact Spokeswoman Valetta Bradford.

http://contactvaletta.wordpress.com

We are waiting for Facebook to answer our request for a donate button directly from Valetta’s home page.  In the meantime, you can donate to The X-Man Foundation at any Educator’s Credit Union.  God bless.
