Daniels Family

Fundraising for an Accessible Van

James Daniels

Meet James and Jacob Daniels of Macon, Georgia. James (22) and Jacob (18) have Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a progressive neuromuscular disorder that causes a loss of motor, pulmonary, and cardiac function. James and Jacob both use wheelchairs that require accessible transportation. Obtaining an accessible vehicle carries a large financial burden.

James is studying Public Relations at the University of Georgia and hopes to return to campus in the fall after a hip fracture kept him home last semester. At this time, he cannot safely transfer to a typical vehicle seat due to risk of re-injury. Jacob attends access classes at Howard High School.

As participants in Jett Foundation’s Accessible Vehicle Fund branch of the Jett Giving Fund, the Daniels Family will aim to raise half the funds needed, or more, for their accessible vehicle before Jett Foundation steps in to cover the remaining costs and purchase.

Help James and Jacob attain freedom and independence! Please consider donating to the Daniels Family’s Jett Giving Fund fundraiser today.

All donations to Jett Foundation are tax-deductible to the extent allowed under applicable law and is an unrestricted contribution to the Jett Giving Fund. The family is working to raise half the funds needed for their van or more; when they reach their goal, Jett Foundation will cover the remaining costs and coordinate purchase and delivery of the vehicle. Please note that your contribution will be combined with other Jett Giving Fund donations to ensure that each of the children in the Jett Giving Fund initiative benefit from your generosity.

About Jett Giving Fund’s Accessible Vehicle Fund

Jett Giving Fund is Jett Foundation’s financial assistance program for families impacted by Duchenne muscular dystrophy who are in need of accessible vehicles or emergency support. As part of the Accessible Vehicle Fund, families fundraise half the funds needed or more for an accessible vehicle, and Jett Foundation covers the remaining costs once they reach their goal. 

If other resources have already been used to meet a specific need, if there is no longer a specific need, and/or if donations have been received in excess of a specific need, donations made in furtherance of a specific need will be applied for general purposes of the Jett Giving Fund. If the Jett Giving Fund no longer exists, all donations will be applied to further the general charitable mission of Jett Foundation.

Experience the magic this summer!
