“It is an amazing feeling to know there are a lot of great people that are around us everyday. The acceptance I felt today is something that I wish every person with NF to receive the same feeling. No, it wasn’t easy, but it was worth it all. If I stayed home. I never would have met the wonderful people I met today. Thank you for caring.”
Thank you, Kathryn Tyler and Poison Girl for hosting our first ever Just Ask Fundraiser! Thank you to everyone who showed up and those who chose to donate via our gofundme account instead. A Grand Total of $1,500 was raised which will cover most of the expenses of our next world tour stop as soon as Reggie is up for the travel.
Thank you, again, everyone for a great afternoon at Poison Girl and a great opportunity to raise awareness of Neurofibromatosis to a new audience!
If it wan’t for Joanie King, the Just Ask Foundation would not have had the strength, stamina, know how or ambition to turn a run down, 1991 GMC school bus into a cool, smooth running, good looking, art car that has been seen by over 300,000 people on a Saturday afternoon in Houston.
If it wasn’t for Joanie’s enthusiasm, kindness, generosity and can-do spirit, I’m afraid of where we would be with the Just Ask Tour. She gave us strength and hope when we had none and her contagious enthusiasm kept us going when we were ready to give up.
It seemed only fitting then on Saturday that Joanie King was leading the way as the Just Ask World Tour Bus made its inaugural voyage in the year’s Houston Art Car Parade.
I just want to say this about Joanie…when other people just promise, Joanie is the person that does. I would rather have one Joanie than a thousand of the others!
She will always have our back and we will always have hers.
Reggie and I are so blessed to be surrounded by so many caring souls at the Houston Art Car Parade! We were fortunate to meet and greet some of the 300,000 Houstonians who turned out for this year’s event!
Oh, and just look at the vehicle that just happens to be in the background from the Houston Chronicles’s website below!
