About JoShawn’s Power Project and how you can help us reach the goal! May 22, 2011

Here is the information about JoShawn’s Power Project if you would like to make a donation.

What is JoShawn’s Power Project?

JoShawn’s Power Project is a project to raise money to purchase a handicap accessible van for my nephew JoShawn Thomas.  Many of you know his story, however what many people don’t know is that JoShawn’s mother, Shatoree doesn’t have the correct transportation for JoShawn.  She has a SUV, which is paid for but is not ideal for a wheel chair bound child.    She has to lift JoShawn in and out of the car on a daily basis, he is over 84 lbs and it is a one person job

Why should I help?  I don’t know you, is this for real this could be a scam!

Unfortunately for the people who know and love JoShawn this is very real,  and is not a scam.  Shatoree truly needs help to purchase a van so it will be easier to transport JoShawn to therapy, doctor’s appointment, school and other appointments.  ALL PROCEEDS are going to the van, we are really on a mission and need your help to make this possible.

Do you want large donations only?

Not at all, it would be awesome to receive a huge donation however we appreciate anything everyone can give.  You can donate from $5.00 up to whatever you would like to donate.  We appreciate all of you!

Why don’t you find a automobile dealership to donate a vehicle?

We actually called auto dealerships to ask how a van can be donated and we were told they don’t “give” vans away and of course, they are overwhelmed by requests from so many people.

How can I help and how do I make a donation?

Please tell as many people as possible, please share the donation information with your family and friends!

There are several ways to donate  and ALL MONIES raised are going to JoShawn Thomas.

1.  You can donate online at either by Credit Card or PayPal, JoShawn’s link is

2.  You can go to any Wells Fargo in Texas and donate money, the account is under JoShawn Thomas and his date of birth is Jan 10, 2005.

3. You can send a check or money order to JoShawn Thomas to PO Box 700604, San Antonio, TX 78270.

Thank you in advance for your support!
