The Jonas Project May 2017

April Donate a Dollar Month: During the month of April, we set out to raise $30,000 in funds to support of our current and prospective veteran-owned businesses. Thanks to you, we nearly met that goal! We also want to give a special thanks to Elaine Matthews, who has generously offered to match the incoming donations we received over the course of the month.

We raised $29,365 in one month! If only April had one more day....

Veteran-Owned Business Profile: Daniel Tapia. On April 13th, the LA Weekly posted an article detailing Daniel's journey towards business ownership. As a veteran, Daniel faces numerous obstacles which often go unaddressed or unsupported by the community as a whole. Here at The Jonas Project, we hope to address these pitfalls by working with entrepreneurs who want to put their plans into action.

“I am a recovering quadriplegic. I am high functioning relative to other quads; we are called ‘walking quads’. I had a surgery at the VA hospital several years ago in which I had a partial spinal cord injury that left me with palsy in all four limbs. Because I’m stubborn as hell and I have an incredibly supportive wife, I am able to live a largely mobile life today.” - Daniel

At the beginning of the 2016 baseball season, New York Yankees Manager Joe Girardi started showing his support to select charities by wearing their shirts during postgame news conferences in New York. Following a 9-1 win over the visiting Chicago White Sox, Joe talked about the Jonas Project while wearing the shirt at the post-game press conference.
