"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome." ~Anne Bradstreet

As we enter continue through the hurricane season here on the east coast of the United States, we have been given a small taste of adversity. I work in a hotel, filled to capacity for several days in a row, following Irene, by people who were without clean water and/or electricity, those with damaged homes, or by those service people coming into the area to help clean up the mess, and restore us to our 'normal way of life'. My involvement here on Crowdrise, however, makes me aware that all of this past week is little more than a reminder of what a large part of Earth's inhabitants go through on a daily basis. Victims such as those of the earthquakes in Haiti and Japan, the tsunami, mass flooding, and the tornadoes that ripped though the Continental US's mid-west will require months, if not years, of recover. And the vast majority have no hotel where they can spend that recovery period.

"A boy doesn't have to go to war to be a hero; he can say he doesn't like pie when he sees there isn't enough to go around." ~Ed Howe

Don't underestimate even the most modest of involvement here on this site...A September vote for you and your heroic efforts...

Hey Linh- Here’s an August Vote!

This month Imagine Scholar in South Africa is trying to raise money to send our students on a very cool educational field trip. Many of our kids have never left their village, so this is pretty sweet for them. Also, thanks to matching donations by an outside funder only $20 can make this dream come true for an amazing kid. If you get a chance check out the project.

Have a great month!

"No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave." - Calvin Coolidge

Happy August! The word 'august' has many meanings as an adjective, including: noble, great, kingly, grand, excellent, imposing, impressive, superb, distinguished, magnificent, glorious, splendid, elevated, eminent, majestic, dignified, regal, stately, high-ranking, monumental, solemn, lofty, exalted...!

A vote for you, and for your 'august' efforts here on Crowdrise!

(Hmmm...Doesn't exactly roll off the tongue does it?...)

CROWDRISING SINCE: Jul 27, 2011
Stuff About Me:

If you don't know the story already...Being a Vietnamese, immigrant girl growing up in the suburbs of Portland, I always felt too Asian at school. While at home, I was too American for my parents. Camp Odyssey was the first place where I felt I had a place and I belonged. Camp Odyssey was the first place where I began to have my voice.

So when the opportunity came to get together with Odyssey alumni that I've known since my teen years to revive this amazing program, I knew I had to do it. I wanted to give back to the next generation of young people and let them know they have a voice and a place.

The camp is free, so we have to raise a good amount of money. But don't think that you are just supporting a youth for a week. You are truly helping to transform their lives for the next 20+ years. 

 

 

My Little Additional Story:

I first heard about Camp Odyssey on a school bulletin board, saying "free multicultural summer camp" and the word free was great because I wouldn't have been able to go otherwise. 

Camp Odyssey was the first summer camp I ever went to! I can't believe my parents let me go because they wouldn't even let me sleep over night at a friend's house and I was 16! So this White European lady shows up at my door to drive me to camp, named Gretchen Kafoury (I still am in touch with her), and little did I know that she was actually the Multnomah County Commissioner at the time. So, there I was, walking off into the car with Gretchen saying good bye to my unassuming (bless their hearts) parents. 

 

My Last Additional Story:

Been reading the camper/youth applications and they are all so sweet and inspiring. They come from so many different and diverse backgrounds and come for such different reasons - whether it's because they'd like to feel better about themselves, find other teens who share their vision, or that they just want to change the world!
