A few months ago, I discovered the Taco Cabana at 5242 N. Lamar in Austin Texas had a defective handicapped bathroom stall. The handicapped stall was missing a door.

with its prison-style handicapped stall.
To ensure our fellow Americans with handicaps can use the toilet with privacy- nay, with dignity- a group of civil-minded patriots (mostly Jake Sharon) began the cause to get a door added to the Taco Cabana handicapped stall. Jake Sharon's wife, Callie, was not pleased with how he was "wasting your free time."
Here is a link to the original article: 5 Reasons Why Taco Cabana Needs A Door On The Handicapped Stall.
Good news: I am very excited to announce WE DID IT! Below is the story of our success. And when I say our success, I mean we couldn't have done it without YOU!
CROWDFUNDING AT ITS BEST!After a blood, sweat and tears and Earth, Wind And Fire social media campaign, our GoFundMe campaign is only $5 short of our funding goal. We couldn't have done that without YOU!
|The fundraiser to get a door added to the Taco Cabana handicapped stall is within $5 of their goal!|
WE GREASED IT!Seventy five days ago, Taco Cabana spokesperson, Todd Coerver tweeted me Taco Cabana put a door on the handicapped stall! Our squeaky wheel got the grease! Now there is a squeaky greasy door at Taco Cabana! We couldn't have done it without YOU!
BATHROOM PHOTOS!Of course, as a credible journalist, I don't just take the word of any taco franchise spokesperson. I asked my friend, Scott Hearne, to take pictures in the Taco Cabana men's room. Scott eagerly took the men's room photos. He also took a picture of the Taco Cabana handicapped stall- which shows there is indeed a door! Success! We couldn't have done it without YOU!
WE CAN DO MORE!Our GoFundMe campaign is still going. It's not too late. We can still do some good. I just moved to South Carolina and I found a messy bathroom stall at the Bojangles. I could use the $5 to get some Boberries while I plot my next save-the-day campaign. Here is a link for when you decide to contribute: http://www.gofundme.com/tacocabanadoor.
I can't do it without YOU!
Bye! I'm Jake!
