TNA Knockout Velvet Sky is putting together a charity project for Gregory Shane Helms after the former WWE Superstar and his girlfriend Karen were involved in a serious motorcycle accident Thursday night. Helms remains hospitalized after suffering a broken leg and ankle, as well as other injuries. He is therefore unable to wrestle, which was his only source of income. Helms posted several photos of his injuries on his Twitter account at this link.
According to her official website, Talia-Madison.net, she is accepting donations on Helms' behalf to help pay for his outstanding medical and surgery bills, as well as everyday expenses. She asks that people donate what they can via PayPal to [email protected]
Velvet Sky, who said she would never go on Twitter because she thought it was 'stupid', launched an account on Saturday via twitter.com/VelVelHoller to help spread the word on her charity campaign. This account has been confirmed by her official website as well as former tag team partner April Hunter.
She wrote, "I know I said I would never get on Twitter but I want to use it in a positive way to help spread the word about donations for Helms."
For those unaware, Sky and Helms dated for years before. Velvet Sky now currently dates Chris Sabin in real-life.
