BENEFITING: GEORGIA LIONS CAMP FOR THE BLIND

EVENT DATE: Sep 30, 2014

Brian Donegan

THE STORY:

My name is Brian Donegan. I am proud Lion and I serve as the President of the Lawrenceville (GA) Lions Club and I am the District's "Keep The Campfires Burning" Chairman on behalf of the Georgia Lions Camp For The Blind in Waycross. As a kid I spent a decade of summers as a camper down there breaking boundaries, beating odds, learning life lessons and having fun with blind and visually impaired kids my own age. I was able to do this without any cost to my parents (thanks to the Lions Club) and I would like to do my part to see that future generations of Georgia's blind and visually impaired children have the same (if not better) opportunities and experiences.

So what did I learn and experience?  I learned how to make my own bed.  I picked blueberries and helped make homemade ice cream, I rode my first waterside and attended my very first baseball game (conquering a fear of large crowds).  I conquered my fear of thunderstorms.  I learned how to swim, ride horses, fish, and paddle a canoe through the Okefenokee Swamp.  I attended my first dance and sang in front of an audience for the first time.  More importantly, I did these things with other blind and visually impaired peers who had the same or similar challenges that I faced.  We all could relate with each other and we were able to have fun and be "free" for a week or two.   I have carried the many memories with me and they helped me become the person I am today.  

That is why I am raising money to "Keep The Campfires Burning" down at the Georgia Lions Camp For The Blind. The camp is 100% funded by private funds raised by Lions across Georgia. I very much appreciate your help and I know the Camp and the campers will too.  Please help me "Keep The Campfires Burning!"
