What is Haggard Rider all about?

After the conversations I had at the 2015 Hemophilia Federation of America’s Annual Symposium. Haggard decided to do something about Sickle Cell and Women with Hemophilia. Haggard spent most of his carrier finding simple solutions to impossible/complex questions. We have a few simple solutions that need to be tested before they are talked about.

What makes Haggard Rider so Special?

Haggard as Haggard Rider is not special. Haggard as a person does not consider himself special. What Haggard does do is special and spectacular. What I do simply that I am not afraid to ask the simple and complex questions. If you don’t have a question, you don’t have anything to answer.

One of the complex things Haggard created was an original encryption system based upon the WWII Encryption Device ENIGMA. He studied why ENIGMA failed. He overcame that and other issues. As of this writing no one has been able to hack the encryption.

What does Haggard Rider do?

Haggard rides his motorcycle long distance. A person is not allowed to be pretty riding hard and long, hence the Haggard name and description. His longest day on two wheels is 23 hours. His longest trip is about 10,000 miles in about 6 weeks. If he doesn’t have a passenger he will ride through all kinds of weather. The most fun riding is when the weather person says to keep your car off the road.

How much does Haggard Make?

Haggard limits his income from the charity to reimbursement for his riding. He is not the kind to sit behind a desk. He would rather be putting himself ‘Out There’.

  • Financially Haggard receives;
    • $1.00 per mile
    • $50.00 per diem
    • Hotel/Motel

As you can see by the reimbursement this charity is not designed to enrich Haggard. It is designed to actually do something,

How much of my donation will go to finding a cure?

Not a single penny of your money will go to finding a cure. That is not what Haggard Rider is about. Haggard Rider is looking for simple solutions to complex problems.

How much of my donation will go to funding a solution?

Haggard Rider is hoping for 90% or more of your donation will go to finding solutions. This will be a hard number to attain and maintain. We will not have any overpaid administrates sitting behind a desk making too much money drinking soy lattes.

Why is Haggard concerned about Women with Hemophilia?

Haggard has Severe Hemophilia B. He does not accept the idea that women are denied the same Standard of Care and Standard of Treatment that men have. The CDC recently stated the women can be born with hemophilia. Prior to this ruling by the CDC Women with Hemophilia were simply dismissed as a symptomatic carrier.

Why is Haggard concerned about Sickle Cell?

Haggard grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. The treatment Center he went to was in the Michael Reese Medical Center on the Southside of Chicago. The Treatment center was also the Sickle Cell Clinic. So as a young man he saw first-hand the horror of Sickle Cell Crisis. As Haggard calls it ‘Silent Torture’

While attending a Hemophilia Foundation of America’s Annual Symposium he was introduced to a young man. After finding out that the ONLY advancement in Sickle Cell in the last 50 years was pain management. This does not sit well with Haggard, when asked why there has been nothing done his answer is “It’s a color issue”. He does know what this means. Much more money is spent on Hemophilia than Sickle Cell. He sees the problem and has made the right call. There is no reason that Sickle Cell does not have the same life enriching solutions that Hemophilia does.

How much commission is paid on donations?

The commission for corporate donations and sponsorships is straight forward

  • Cash Donations
    • 10% first years
    • 5% other than first year
  • In-Kind Donations
    • 5% First Year
    • 2.5% other than first year

There is a three year life for maximum donations. Anything donated above the maximum donation is eligible for first years Commission. Anything less than the maximum donation is paid at the ‘Other Than First Year’ rate.
Haggard Rider insists that there be a matching cash donation equal or more than the In-Kind donation. This way Haggard Rider does not take funds form research to pay commission on In-Kind donations.
