Founder Danny Perkins lives in a million dollar condo in Miami and oversees a lucrative money making biker funded charity

When Orlando television news reporter Matt Grant started digging around into the finances of Daytona based BADD, (Bikers Against Drunk Drivers) he hit a stone wall, at least when he contacted the organization directly. BADD is a well known motorcycle charity in Central Florida and is known for it’s motorcycle giveaways. According to records filed with the State of Florida in the three years prior to 2014, the organization collected just over $2.6 million dollars. Those same records indicate the charity has returned just $20,300 to victims of drunk drivers, less than 1% of the money it collected. The president of Charity Navigator, one of the largest non-profit charity watch dogs in the United States said the numbers don’t add up and gives BADD a “zero” rating. Records indicate that the charity’s founder Danny Perkins owns a luxury condo on Miami’s South Beach worth almost a million dollars and which records indicate was paid for in cash and a 27 foot pleasure boat which is registered in the charity’s name. When asked how donations are spent, Perkins told WESH in an email “the charity speaks for itself,”claiming BADD has sent out 5 million flyers and used Facebook posts to encourage people not to drink and drive.

    I was just about to purchase $100 worth of raffle tickets for the 2021 drawing. I’m so glad I found this article first! Thanks for the information

    Did they really have the raffle for the blue and white combo truck and motorcycle on March 13, 2021? Good thing I only bought one ticket and not a hundred. As I found this site, that only 1 % goes to the charity. Leaves me wondering as they have NOT posted winner’s name or at least the city in which they live🤷🏽‍♀️🤔

    I was just about to make a donation before I came across this article. Wow.

  • Jewelz on

    They blocked me from commenting on their Facebook pages because I found the proof that they are keeping most of the donations and I shared the link. That’s wrong!

    I am concerned about people who put charity organizations together. Some are legit, and some apparently like BADD does no charity work except for asking for money to spend on himself. These people should have their license pulled for a charity organization!!!!! Not happy as I bought some raffle tickets.
