AUSTIN, Texas - Actor Bruce Willis has donated five motorcycles from his garage for an online auction to benefit veterans and wounded combat troops through the Boot Campaign, a national 501C-3 nonprofit military appreciation and support campaign based in Texas.
The first motorcycle, a 2005 Ducati 1000DS, was auctioned for $6,250 in December. This week, the second bike from Willis' donated collection, a 1988 Yamaha TW, will go on auction.
Born on a military base in Germany, Willis has a longstanding 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," he said. "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 bikes will be released for auction every two months, with the final charity auction in August. To place a bid on Bruce Willis' 1988 Yamaha TW, visit: http://bit.ly/BruceBike2
