UPDATE: They’ve surpassed $90 thousand dollars!!! Wow.


If you would like to make a donation in memory of Pancho Billa… here is your chance!

Pancho had said that he didn’t want flowers at his funeral – instead he wanted people to pack a backpack for a child.

His friends have made that possible. Del Reid of 26 Shirts and Jonah Javad have made it possible for all of us to give back, help a child and remember Pancho Billa.

For every $10 donated here: a needy child will get a backpack filled with $100 in school supplies.

To give a gift in memory of Ezra “Pancho Billa” Castro, please select #PANCHOSPACK when you make your donation.

From the looks of social media – this is already a HUGELY successful fundraiser. Of course, it’s no surprise to us.

What an amazing community – doing something so special to remember an amazing man.
