Young Jeezy Purchases Wheelchair Accessible Van for Disabled Teenager
Young Jeezy revealed his softer side at Justin’s Restaurant in Atlanta last night (February 26) when he presented a wheelchair accessible van to 13 year-old Davon Jenkins and his mother Tamara. Davon, who suffers from cerebral palsy, was the winner of the rapper’s Make Your Dreams Come True contest. Announced last summer, the contest was Jeezy’s way of sharing his success with his fans. “I wanted to do more than just say ‘thank you,’ I wanted to show them how thankful I am that they’re helping me realize my dreams,” he explained. Entrants were required to submit a short letter explaining what their dream was and why the trapstar should make it come true. Davon’s mom wrote a short note explaining how hard it was for her to leave the house with the boy because of his disability. She also explained that she is Davon’s only caregiver, as his father is a soldier currently stationed in Iraq. During last night’s meeting, Jeezy presented the family with the van and a personalized wardrobe for Davon from the rapper’s 8732 clothing line.
