As many of you know, I've been attending Dream Street since 2001, first as a camper with cancer and then as a volunteer for over 15 years. It is the cause most dear to my heart and looooooove does not even begin to describe what I feel for this organization and mission. The people involved are of the purest hearts and I am honored to serve with them year after year. Please read below for a glimpse of what you're helping to accomplish and what you can do to improve the lives of children with chronic or life-threatening ilnesses.
Thank you for your generosity!! Even $1 from each of you would be greatly greatly appreciated and I thank you for your support!

Welcome to the 3rd annual Dream Street Crowdrise fundraiser. We are a group of counselors who dedicate much of our time to giving children a week to remember. Our campers all have a life threatening or terminal illness that prevents them from attending an ordinary summer camp.
We, as their counselors, put everything else on hold for one week, to help these kids enjoy life and forget about hospitals, needles, and all the other things they are constantly being so brave to endure. One of the best moments of our entire year is getting the huge hugs of the returning campers who run off the bus because they are so excited for camp. While our love for these kids is an essential part of camp, we also need your support to help bring supplies and ever more surprises to camp.
With the money we raised last year, we are able to bring back Carnival – a day or amusement park rides and super fun for all campers on their last day. The year before, we brought in hot air balloon rides. The only reason we are able to do these things is from this fundraiser. Help us do it again this year. Every dollar counts!!! Thank you from the very bottom of our hearts!
