It's pretty simple...I love camp. I love everything about it. Some of the greatest people around volunteer their time to be a part of Camp Hollywood HEART. I am lucky enough to call them my dear friends. Above all else, Camp Hollywood HEART has allowed me to be a part of the lives of some pretty amazing youth. They inspire all of us to create, love, laugh, and fear less. As camp approaches I find myself eagerly awaiting the opportunity to see my friends again and to witness the endless talent of our participants. But before then the REAL work begins with planning and fundraising... Please donate what you can to an organization that has truly changed my life.
Help young adults impacted by HIV/AIDS by donating what you can. Every dollar raised through this campaign will go directly towards making sure that Camp Hollywood HEART happens once again this summer.
Since 1995, Hollywood HEART has provided thousands of young people around the U.S. unique life-changing programs. This holiday we are raising money to fund Camp Hollywood HEART, our week-long interactive arts experience for youth impacted by HIV/AIDS. Participants ages 15-21 have the opportunity to explore their choice of in-depth mentorship and training in:
- Creative Writing
- Culinary arts
- Documentary Filmmaking
- Visual Arts
By learning from top level professionals, participants tap into their creativity and showcase their skills and artistic vision. Culminating in a Gala performance at the end of the week, Camp Hollywood HEART brings smiles, pride, and confidence to the participants for years to come.
This year we hope to sponsor 80 campers. It costs roughly $1,250 per camper to provide travel, room/board, and an exceptional medical support team. Please donate whatever you can to give the gift of opportunity, acceptance, and celebration to these very deserving young people.
As an example of the work of our actors from camp last summer, please check out one of the awesome short films the Acting Team made => Funky Truck
