This section is titled "Stuff About Me". I know what you are all thinking, do we really want to know more about Marit? Probably not, but I’m sure you do want to hear more about why this Crowdrise is so important to me!
I have worked for the NY YMCA Camp for almost 5 years now! Wow! Where have the years gone! I can't be considered a "New Yorker", and I'm ok with that, but I pride myself on being able to navigate the subway with minimal confusion and slight rerouting 2 or 3 times every time I ride. I'll take that as a win! Anyway, on to the reason why you should give me your money.
Working at camp has been one of the best things that has ever happened to me. It seems cliché to say that, but it's true, just find yourself a camp person and ask them about Camp. You will notice their eyes widen, a huge smile start to engulf their face, and, if they are like me, they turn into a giddy 4 year-old who was just given a ice cream the size of their head. It's that real.
The NY YMCA Camp gives young people the opportunity to come to camp and experience all that is good in this world. Our staff create a safe and caring environment for our campers to be exactly who they are or who they want to be, but don’t often get the chance to in the real world.
Year after year I am found wanting more. More opportunities to better myself, more opportunities to help develop staff into successful young leaders, and most of all, more opportunities to bring campers to camp who without your donation, may never experience the magic of camp.
All I asking for is that this week you refrain from buying 1 of your Starbucks lattes, 1 trip to the nearest fast-food place for a quick dinner, 1 huge ice-cream cone, or 1 new "thing" you could go without. And donate it to the NY YMCA Camp! If all my friends do this, we are sure to send at least one more camper to camp to have the summer of their lives!.....SO....... GIVE ME YOUR MONEY!!!
