http://www.hollywoodheart.org/ -- This is an organization that I have been a part of for more than 10 years -- I am on the board but more importantly I go to the Arts Camp every year and spend time with these amazing kids. I have shown movies at the camp (including some I've worked on)
These kids are the coolest people on the planet -- and yes I'm asking you to give so that we can continue to sponsor a camp for them (know that we have medical staff that donate their time and resources as a lot of our campers have health issues) -- we all donate our time but we need help...
And yes I'm asking for the campers but I have to be honest and say that...it's for me. The memories I have from being at camp are priceless. So selfishly I ask you to give so I can keep going to camp.
E-mail me if you have even an inkling of coming to camp. It's usually mid-August and we have a gala night where the kids perform -- it will truly shake your soul and make you happy to just be on the planet.
If you know me...then you should have a pretty good idea of what it would look like to see me teaching at risk and special needs kids about "writing."
Thanks in advance for anything you can contribute.
Peace -- Gatins
