THE STORY:

"Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation (http://www.aarbf.org) is a non-profit organization based out of California that is dedicated to preventing burns and fires and providing resources and support to those who have been affected by burn injury. AARBF is a family brought together of incredible humans ranging from firefighters and EMTs, to burn care professionals and burn survivors, and many others in effort to enhance the lives of burn survivors -- making burn injuries a part of the past." This incredible organization has enhanced the lives of SO MANY burn survivors, including myself. When I was seven years old, I suffered a traumatic third degree burn injury that left me scarred on the inside and outside for quite a while. While at Shriner's Hospital for Children in Sacramento, California my mother and I learned about AARBF and Champ Camp. And when I was nine years old, I went to Champ Camp for the first time. Little did I know, this camp and organization would be setting the foundation and becoming a HUGE rock, leaving a great impact in my life. This week long camp left me in tears at the end of it, simply because I wasn't ready to head home. I had found more family, I had found many friends who were just like me -- with scars like me. I had found myself branching out and trying activities I had never even heard of or seen before, breaking me out of my shell and my comfort zone to try new things and face different fears. From go-karts and mini-bikes, to archery and riflery, to boating and fishing, to paintball and a ropes course, to white water rafting and so many more activities -- this camp has so much to offer. Aside from all the amazing activities, the volunteers make this camp and organization what it really is. This community has helped shape me into the woman I am today. I'm so ecstatic to be able to say that I'm able to come back to camp after six years to serve and volunteer my time to give back to this community that gives and gives and gives. AND WE NEED ALL THE HELP WE CAN GET!! This organization relies of the magic of fundraising and donations. Help me and so many other amazing beings give the gift of FUN and HAPPINESS to an incredible group of burn survivors for a week. Together, we can move mountains. <3
