It was a pleasure to work alongside Shawn as he volunteered with cleanup crews
in New Orleans after Katrina, and for a couple of years in the Boy Scouts. He
does so sincerely, humbly, with no fanfare. A genuine, funny, amiable guy, who
just happens to be a millionaire.... I'm sure any accolades sent his way
because of his service are embarrassing to him. But in this case, he needs the
notoriety to further the cause. What a great cause.
I am a Ute fan but I have a ton of respect for Shawn Bradley. Such a kind person
with a good heart. A gentle giant. He signed an autograph for me years ago when
I was sick and not able to serve a mission. He wished only the best for me.
Shawn Bradley is a real person. Nothing fake about this guy. I really wish
people like him were the ones running for office and our politicians instead of
the selfish crooked scum we mostly have.

Having contact information in order to donate to this very helpful organization
would be a useful addition to this wonderful story.
Having lived in Emery County and known Shawn since he was a boy, I can say that
this sounds just like him. His mom and dad were always super nice people,
involved with the community and great examples.
