Let’s Bring Jason’s Law to the Great American Trucking Show

The brotherhood of truckers.   It’s out there … still … I’m sure of it.  Your support of Jason’s Law has generated, at this point, 7582 signatures on the Jason’s Law petition.   Your support is greatly appreciated.  Many of us are working together to help raise the funds needed to assist the Rivenburg’s in attending The Great American Trucking Show, coming up in August in Dallas, Texas.

To date, all donations have come from truckers, non-truckers and many great trucking related websites.  Apparently, trucking companies and the large trucking organizations who boast about their support for drivers and the industry, do only that – “boast.”   Practically, each State has their own Trucking Association, however,  have yet to step up and respond by donating even just a few dollars to this important step in moving the H. R. 2156 bill further into the public spotlight.

Getting Jason’s Law to The Great American Trucking Show would do just that.

GoTruckStop.com has donated their booth to the Rivenburg family and have set up a donation page to achieve this critical issue.   The trucking companies, organizations and associations appear to be leaving the responsibility up to the truckers, individuals and those hosting various sites related to our nation’s truck drivers and the industry.  These are the real “movers and shakers” who believe that the “brotherhood” still exist.

Help bring the Rivenburg family to the truck show in Dallas.  Any amount of donation is appreciated and will further the cause in Jason’s Law.

DONATE for GATS . . .

Thanks everyone,

Allen Smith
