Stuff About Me:

Hello Family and Friends!

As many of you know, for the last year I have been on the Board of Directors of what is now called "The Piece" - but our main project is Camp Odyssey.  This is the most life-changing camp I have ever had the pleasure of participating in, and I believe it has the ability to change the way our youth engage with each other and with the world.  It builds empathy through experiential activities, dialogue, and personal stories from other youth who have lived through a huge spectrum of expriences - who have known the devestating impact of discrimination, power, and privilege.  This is a camp about diversity, and opens youth (high school age) to seeing the humanity in those who are different from them.  Our long-term goal is increased participation from our youth in our communities, and in the shifting of our society towards a paradigm of giving, acceptance, and love.

We are struggling with funding this year, and our goal is to make camp free to all youth.  So, whatever you are able to give will be greatly appreciated...even $5 helps.

Thank you!!
