BENEFITING: Project Kindle
Friends and Family, once again I am asking for your support. In July I will once again be part of the Medical team at Camp Kindle. Last year was the first year that I participated, and as I have shared with many of you I found the experience to be incredible. The Project Kindle Organization has created an amazing experience for those children impacted by the disease of HIV / AIDS. It is truly amazing to see how one week can bring so much joy into a child’s life. I couldn't help but think of my Father and the passion and adventure he brought to life, and believe that in some way I was passing that along. By your support, Project Kindle will be able to continue their healing work and spread their message of unconditional love and acceptance. I thank you all so much.
Please remember any amount is welcome and will be put to good use.
About Camp Kindle
The purpose of Camp Kindle is to enhance the overall well-being of children and young people infected with or affected by HIV and AIDS. Camp Kindle's primary mechanism for achieving its purpose is through camping events held in Nebraska and California. The camps provide HIV infected and affected youth residing throughout the Central and Western United States with a safe and accepting refuge from the challenges of living with HIV. These camps offer opportunities for young people to strengthen self-esteem through interactive participation in educational and recreational programming. Camp Kindle provides supportive environments where children and young adults can safely explore opportunities for growth and acceptance. Camp Kindle also offers year round support designed to offer encouragement and education both during camp and throughout the year.
