BENEFITING: HAPPINESS IS CAMPING INC
ORGANIZER: HAPPINESS IS CAMPING INC
As an educator, I have found that one of the most invaluable experiences we can offer children is the opportunity to participate in outdoor education programs that are fun. We've all heard of "No Child Left Behind," however, in order to ensure that all children have an enriching, well rounded education, we must enforce "No Child Left Inside."
Hiking adventures and outdoor programs we offer our students have been some of the most meaningful experiences they have ever had. Being outside in nature has taught them that good things come from stepping outside of their comfort zone. After these experiences, all of my students have noticibly been more comfortable with being courageous by something new and exciting. They all come back with higher self esteem and more confidence in succeeding at any challenge that they meet. The benefits are invaluable.
This November, I will have the privilege of running the New York City Marathon to raise funds for this truly amazing, life changing organization. I am so honored and excited to represent them and to help create a truly life-changing experience for these kids.
Please donate so we can help them continue to provide free programming to children who need it most. This organization is only possible through donations from people like you and me. Any amount helps!
All children deserve the opportunity to make friends, memories, learn essential life lessons, and gain an appreciation for nature. Because of Happiness is Camping, it is possible for children with cancer to form life-long friendships and memories that will shape their future.
Thank you so much for your support!
