Bicycle messengers brave the streets daily and have the scars to prove it. Most messengers have little or no on-the-job health coverage or the financial means to make ends meet if they get injured. Bicycle Messenger Emergency Fund (BMEF) was created to assist these messengers.
We wanted to help raise funds and awareness for the cause, so we created Chrome Aces. Chrome Aces is a deck of cards that recognizes 52 of the best messengers from 4 cities or suits. Squid in NYC, Billy in SF, Augie in Chicago, and Casy in Portland rallied the messengers and photographers who know them like Chris Diltz and Augie Montes. It was definitely a labor of love, but worth all the efforts.
