THE STORY:

Hi, my name is Emily and I just turned 14 years old. I was born in Guatemala and adopted when I was a baby. I live with my mom in the mountains outside of Boulder, Colorado with our three dogs and two cats.

I was accepted into the Youth Empowerment Action camp this summer and am very excited.  YEA camp is a summer leadership program for 12-17 year olds who want to make a difference in the world. I’m looking forward to increasing my knowledge, skills and confidence so I can take action on issues that are important to me. 

The issue I feel the most strongly about is animal testing, especially on beagles. In this day and age there must be alternatives to animal testing. Laboratories justify breeding beagles for testing by saying they are “purpose-bred” but there is no difference between a lab dog and a companion dog. There are passionate people working on this issue right now and I want to join them in spreading awareness and creating change. I want to be an advocate for these animals that have no voice. They deserve so much more.

I want to thank you for watching my presentation and appreciate your consideration. Your donation, no matter how small, will help me get me one step closer to attending YEA camp, where I will learn how to bring awareness to others on the issues of animals, health and the environment. I can think of no greater gift that YEA camp and the lessons I’ll learn there. I’ll be babysitting and fundraising in June to raise money for camp and your generous donations will help me get the rest of the tuition I’ll need to attend.

Thanks again for supporting me on my journey.

What Is Youth Empowered Action Camp?

This fundraiser is for campers who are raising funds to contribute toward their tuition to attend YEA Camp this summer on a scholarship. Each camper will create a profile page explaining why they want to attend camp.

Youth Empowered Action (YEA) Camp is a unique and inspiring summer leadership program for youth 12-17 who want to make a difference in the world. At a week-long sleep-away program in a beautiful camp setting, YEA campers choose an issue of importance to them (for example, some have chosen climate change, racism, homophobia, homelessness, or animal rights) and they build the knowledge, skills, confidence, and community to take action on that issue once they get home. Campers also build lifelong friendships between youth with similar interests in bettering their community and society. Youth who have participated in our programs report that the camp was one of the most fun, memorable and life-changing experiences they have had, and, with YEA’s support, many have gone on to start school clubs, plan fundraisers for nonprofits, organize a call-in to Congress, and attend hearings to comment about important community issues. Check out our website www.yeacamp.org to learn more about this unique program.

YEA Camp is fiscally sponsored by Earth Island Instutite and all donations will be processed by them.

Thank you so much, Emily, for rescuing us and giving us such a wonderful and loving home .. We'd like to donate to your fundraiser because we're so glad you're able to go to YEA Camp. We think you'll be taking on many meaningful and worthwhile endeavors in your life .. but you probably won't be rescuing another one of us any time soon, right? 5 years ago
