Why West Coast Customs
When Wheels For Wishes received the donation from Green Day they knew that they couldn’t let this piece of history be lost in a junkyard somewhere. They have known for some time that West Coast Costumes is the leader in the industry for restoration, so they reached out in hopes to bring the Green Day Bookmobile back to life. West Coast Customs wasn’t aware of the condition of the tour bus. However, once they saw the tour bus they were a little leery at first but knew this was one project that they couldn’t pass up!
It shouldn’t be a surprise to you that Green Day picked Wheels For Wishes to donate the Bookmobile tour bus. Green Day didn’t have any expectations for Wheels For Wishes to restore the bus. They just wanted to do what they could to help this fantastic organization. Throughout the years, Green Day has played in many benefit concerts around the world for children’s charities, cancer charities, hurricane relief charities and so many other causes. When you think of this rock band, it should not only be for their many hit records, but also for how big of philanthropists they are. They have done some incredible work throughout the years including this awesome donation.
