As many of you know, Shawn Clement was hospitalized this week after an act of desperation. What most of you don't know are the reasons why. Shawn has been involved in numerous lawsuits both before and after his divorce. Those of you close to him probably know the nature of the situation, after a decade it's still going on. He's been financially and emotionally decimated, and the stress of the situation has made it difficult for him to work as much as he'd like. To make matters worse, a few months ago, after returning from a hospitalization for illness, he discovered that a trusted business partner had disappeared after stealing his identity, drained his pension of millions, took what little cash he had left. An investigation is underway, but he may never see his money again. As a result of the lawsuits from the divorce, Shawn is required to make some court-ordered payments. He has to pay $65,000 by February 14th, or he will be held in contempt of court and sent to jail. He's been having to live off credit to stay afloat since the identity theft and has no way to make the payment. When he learned of this inevitability, he felt like he was in no win situation, and decided to take his life rather than face the reality of what would happen to him in prison. Shawn, despite helping so many with their careers and other issues ( including me) would never ask for help. But we all love him, and it's time for us to help him. I know $60,000 sounds like a lot, but if we all chip in I believe we can do it. We have to have the money raised by February 9th, to give the system time to transfer it to Shawn, so we have to act fast. Please donate whatever you can. Beyond this immediate crisis, his health is suffering, and he's about to lose his house. Thank you.

Thank you everyone for the incredible outpouring of support for Shawn! It warms my heart to know there's so much love for this guy. In case you missed it, here's a post he made on Facebook to thank everyone:

I want to thank everyone for all the incredible wishes and statements about me…I am so overwhelmed by all the love and support. I am truly grateful….It will take me some time to get back to everyone as I’m focusing on getting better and recovering as well as preparing for my upcoming court hearings next week. I literally have tears when I read some of the things that have been said about me…. I just never knew that I had this many friends and that I made an impact in any way…. It’s amazing.

Thanks to all of the generous donations from everyone, I was able to make a payment and my case has been continued…Hopefully now I can find work, which I desperately need, and raise the rest when I’m back in court next time. There are more battles ahead but with the incredible support from all of you I feel much stronger marching forward. Thank you all again!!!
