THE STORY:

It costs $250 to send a underprivileged, special needs or at-risk kid to camp. My goal is to get 14 kids to camp because that's a whole cabin!

I'm getting the word out to about 100 people. If each person gives $35 we'll get there. So, one option is to just click the Donate button and be done.

What would be even better is if you help me fundraise. Sign up and create an account on Crowdrise. Then, come back to my page and click Help Me Fundraise. Clicking that button gives you a project page that you can forward to your own friends and family. Imagine how amazing it'll be when 20 people raise $1,000 and we're able to send 40 kids to camp.

Going to camp is something these kids would not otherwise get to do. Many of our kids are underprivileged and from poor communities. They have never been in a lake, never built a camp fire and never gone canoeing. Giving kids new experiences will help them understand that there is more to the world than they know. It gives them hope, challenges them to try new things and opens their eyes to new opportunities.

Brian and I had the privileged of taking the first group of kids up to camp in the summer of 2001. It was an amazing experience to see the kids get into a lake for the first time. Even though they didn't know how to swim and had never been in a lake, they put on life jackets and jumped in! It's a wonderful organization to be part of.
