Angie’s Angels Like You Make a Huge Impact.
Angie Christopher was a part of the Camp Michigania family for 7 years, working behind the scenes as Mitch’s right hand person. Diagnosed in June, 2014 with a terminal illness she passed away on the morning of July 31st last year. Angie’s Angels was established in August to help support Angie’s five children. Last year we reached 120% of our $30,000 goal. Here is Angie’s sister, Jennifer Jarvis, to report on the impact of our fundraising:
“I wasn’t sure how to begin this thank you letter; words don’t seem to be powerful enough to express how the Camp Michigania family and their generous donations have helped this family.
When Mitch informed me of the CrowdRise site and the amount of support and contributions that had come in from people who knew Angie, the only thing I could do was cry. The kids were all wondering what would become of them and no one had any answers. They were floundering; we all were. The donations from the campers gave the family valuable time to regroup. Toni (Angie’s sister) had left her job and apartment in Texas to come back to Michigan to help care for her. Angie’s oldest, Cory, also left Texas to come back to visit his mom, not knowing this would be the last visit they’d ever have. Angie’s illness left her family in the caregiver mode but we all had jobs and none of us were financially able to take however much time was needed to spend her last days with her; we did it anyway. The money from the CrowdRise site enabled us to financially get back on our feet after the worst month of our lives.
Working at Camp Michigania, Angie was happier than she’d ever been. She always told us that you were her “up north” family and she loved seeing your faces year after year. I’m sure she wasn’t counting on this type of support from you, but that’s what families do, they take care of each other. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking care of Angie when we couldn’t be there and for taking care of us in our time of greatest need. We feel a part of the Camp Michigania family now too.”
