For the last few days there’s been a drive to try to assist Hope Rivenburg and family of slain trucker, Jason Rivenburg, to attend GATS!
The family plans on attending GATS in order to ensure that the Bill HR 2156 ( Jasons Law) is passed. They want to reach out to as many drivers as possible so they understand the importance of supporting “Jason’s Law” which will be part of a pilot program, expanding the amount of safe parking, therefore reducing the risk of another family experiencing the tragic loss that they have had to endure.
Shortly after the first post was written TG Graff of GoTruckStop.com immediatley responded by offering his booth to Hope and family. He has since then started a donation drive, ” Get Jasons Law to Gats” encouraging truckers from all over to donate$5.00 to the fund. It wasn’t long after that, others started to follow. Power is in numbers and we all need to help assuring that Jason’s family can attend GATS and represent the Bill which was started in his name.
Today TJ left a comment on the original blog post. This is what he wrote:
I just wanted to thank everyone that has donated so far to the “Get Jason’s Law to
GATS” fund. As of this posting we have collected $510 … and hopefully more to

for the booth at GATS for Jason’s Law.

Here is a chance to get up and do something that can make a difference to YOUR
If we had 500 folks just simply give $5.00 (the cost of 2 Starbuck’s coffees) we
would have Hope and her organization in Dallas.
How about it?
