PRLog - Feb. 3, 2014 - Rochester Hills, Michigan (February 2014) --- As a wheelchair user since the age of five years old following a shooting, Sharina Jones remembers her dying father’s words to remain positive as “ The Sun Will Come Up Tomorrow”.   Sharina’s book by the same title is an inspirational story that in turn moved her to create a crowdfunding campaign, Wheelchairs-in-Numbers at GoFundMe.com to build a boutique for women in wheelchairs that will carry fashionable apparel, appropriate gloves, scarves, hats, shoes and more for both leisure and formal dress.

“I hope by showing this side of women in wheelchairs that we can attract young designers to consider this market since over 58% of people in wheelchairs today are women.  And 90% use manual wheelchairs.  We’re looking at over 900,000 consumers”, says Sharina Jones.

These statistics from the University of San Francisco, Disability Statistic Center, go on to say that since women live longer than men the manual wheelchair will remain the mobility device of choice.  “The largest group using wheelchairs are women in the labor force which is why Disability does not mean Inability became our mantra.  By raising funds from the grass roots level, we want everyone to be part of this campaign and movement to support businesswomen, entrepreneurs, and working professionals in the labor pool that are wheelchair users,” says Sharina.

Sharina’s campaign can be viewed at http://www.gofundme.com/wheelchairs-in-numbers.  Her book “The Sun Comes Up Tomorrow” is at Amazon.com and her website is SharinaJones.com.
