“Our family is sincerely thankful for Giving Songs! My family will never be able to thank you enough for stepping in and helping with [a grant] to purchase an adapted van.
My husband, who had spine surgery, was unable to help me lift or transport our son's medically adapted stroller after I was in a car accident…. I struggled to get my son to his many medical appointments, but thanks to Giving Songs, our li[ves] have been forever changed and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Without this grant this could not have been possible. We are now able to get Remon, Jr. to his many appointments.”
– Yolonda, mother of Remon, Jr. (2022)
"Thank you so much Giving Songs for providing us with the means to get this wheelchair van. I truly appreciate your support. This van means so much to me now that I can go to school and do everyday living. I’ve been trying to do as much as I can before school starts in the fall. I’ve already made so many memories with this van. So for that I am grateful to you and once again thank you."
- Terrence, Jr. (2022)

"Having a wheelchair accessible vehicle has made travel to doctor appointments and family activities so much easier. We are so grateful to have this van and even more grateful for Giving Songs and their gift to our family. "
- Shannon and Chris, parents of Asher (2022)
“To say we are blessed and beyond grateful would be an understatement. Your kindness and generosity means more than any words could possibly explain. So, let me simply begin by saying, thank you.
Thank you, for your recent donation of $15,000 that aided in the purchasing of a wheelchair accessible van. Thank you, for your generosity and understanding of just how valuable accessible transportation is for someone who has limited mobility. Thank you, for seeing a need and acting upon it.
With your generous gift, you have aided our child, who uses a wheelchair for mobility, the opportunity to have a more accessible means of transportation not only now but as she ages. Dayton is a vibrant, active, child. One who enjoys travel, skateparks, and being with her brothers. One who has many appointments that we must travel for to monitor her health and growth. She is a child who lives a full life with strength and determination.
Your giving heart has aided our family with the opportunity for safer transport and less strain on her and on us with lifting her to and from a traditional vehicle. This accessible van will allow us more opportunities for quality family outings and for Dayton to be an active, high energy, mobile participant in more activities outside of our home. Thank you for providing her and us with a continued example of living with a kind and generous heart and for aiding us in providing her safe and reliable transportation as we continue to show her that her mobility outshines her disability in so many ways.
Our gratitude could never be summed up in a few paragraphs or in a few short words. Please know that from the bottom of our hearts, we are eternally grateful for your kind and generous donation and we will continue to spread our message of appreciation and gratefulness for the remainder of our lives.”
– Natasha, mother of Dayton (2021)
“We are so thankful to Giving Songs for helping us get the lift for our van. We found an amazing van but couldn’t afford to have it converted because of the payment on the vehicle! We were able to get it converted solely from the help of Giving Songs. This lift has been life changing. I no longer have to lift my 35 lb. daughter in and out of the car but also (and more importantly) her 100 lb. wheelchair! My back is already a little messed up from a car accident and with P-R only getting bigger it’s a relief to know at least one area of our lives was made more convenient. She sits SO comfortably in her wheelchair versus a car seat so we are extremely grateful for that! Giving Songs, we cannot thank you enough for the amazing gift for our family. A large family like ours cannot always afford everything simply. Thank you again for helping us keep P-R comfortable every moment of every day. The lift only furthers our strive for quality of life for our daughter. My back thanks you too!”
– Crystal, mother of P-R (2021)
"We really appreciate the ramp that was installed to our van. It's made transporting my brother so much easier for my mom and I while making sure he's as comfortable as possible!"
- Huyen, sister of Zain (2021)
"This past June we found ourselves in an unimaginable circumstance with our daughter after complications from a surgical procedure. We were overwhelmed with new life challenges our daughter's condition would require us to navigate. We not only needed to make our home accessible for her but we needed our vehicle converted to provide our daughter a way to come home from hospital and to receive her ongoing outpatient medical and rehabilitation needs. We are so grateful we were introduced to Giving Songs and were touched by their willingness to provide funding to convert our van to be wheelchair accessible for our daughter. We are grateful for the support received not only financially but we have felt support for our daughter and family regularly with check-ins to see how we are transitioning. We are so grateful for all those who make Giving Song grants possible to bless the lives of families like ours. Thank you!"
- Jennifer, mother of Lyla (2020)
"Justin had therapy today and for the first time I took him AND got back home again without having to pick up his wheelchair! We LOVE LOVE LOVE his new van!

“Our family is forever grateful for Giving Songs! We are a family of 5, and our middle son, Maxwell, has a genetic condition called FOXG1 syndrome which leaves him without the ability to walk, talk, self feed, and see properly. We needed a wheelchair van to safely transport Max now that he is getting older. Giving Songs made our dreams come true. Without this grant, it would take a years for us to be able to save enough to purchase the van that we needed so urgently. This is an incredible organization that made a huge, positive difference in our lives. Thank you Giving Songs! We appreciate everything you have done for our family!”
- Marissa, mother of Maxwell (2020)
"We are overwhelmed with gratitude for the $25,000 grant from Giving Songs. It's hard to find the right words to express the incredible weight that has been lifted for our family due to this generous gift. Your willingness to help families secure wheelchair accessible vehicles so that they can transport their children with ease and safety has left a lifelong, meaningful impact on our family, the families supported prior to ours and the many that are sure to follow. The freedom to transport Miles in a vehicle best suited for our family enables us the opportunity to be together for day-to-day activities and take Miles on future family adventures."
- Rita, mother of Miles (2020)

“Giving Songs is an amazing charity that helps families with a disabled child purchase an accessible vehicle. These vehicles are so expensive and it was extremely difficult to find any charities that helped with such a purchase. I was so thankful that Giving Songs came through and helped us! What a blessing this charity is!!”
- Melissa, mother of Ashley (2017)
“If anyone is looking for an organization to support.......I highly recommend Giving Songs.
They provided us with a grant which helped to get our payment one we could afford for
Addi’s handicap MV-1 Van!
This was life changing for us.... I look back and think of how life was before our van and tears flow ........
I was so afraid I would drop Addisyn carrying her in and out of the van, through the snow .....
up the stairs......
She had outgrown her car seat.... being able to change her diaper on the go was almost impossible.
This van gave me the freedom to care for my daughter independently. I can do it all by myself if need be. Can you imagine how good that feels.....
Thank you to our dear friends..... The Johnsons ....I now consider family .....for their dedication to this cause. We love you all dearly...and will forever be grateful!
Thank you Lord for always providing......Blessed”
- Tracy, mother of Addisyn (2015)
“We absolutely LOVE the new vehicle! Yesterday I was able to pick Tyler up from school,
run some errands, and go to the grocery store – without any help, and without any back ache.
Tyler loves sitting in the front as well…. Him sitting in the front must feel like an entirely new experience, he just giggles and giggles. I found myself just taking him for a ride a couple of times
just to see him smile and hear his giggle."
– Trish, mother of Tyler (2014)
“We purchased a wheelchair van 7 years ago for our special needs daughter, Kassidy. Giving Songs was amazing and helped us with a monetary donation that was beyond anything we could have imagined. They came to the dealer with us and helped us with the entire process. We have had our van since that time and it has been a blessing for our family making our daily life so much easier. Thanks again.”
- Chris and Karen, parents of Kassidy (2012)
