Emily Bonnett via Crowdrise
June 01, 2013
This is the only fundraiser I am personally affiliated with. I support many different causes (many of you are the reason) but this is the one I actually 'get my hands dirty' for (sort of).
This year my thoughts are with Liam and Luke who just moved to Sweden recently with their mother, Lotta. Wilde dreamt his family would be happy there and they are bravely doing that now.
My friend, Richard Jennings, is very personally involved with this organization and I love the enthusiasum and time he puts into this every year.
This fundraising event is specifically designed to send kids to camp who have lost a sibling or parent recently for free, to Camp Erin.
My goal is to send as many kids to camp as I can. Even small amounts help towards the larger goal.
If you can attend the fundraising event, please sign up and let me know. It is a lot of fun and for such a great cause.
Check out Our House's statement below and their website for more details. I think you will agree. This is for the kids who have lost so much.

On July 20th, Richard Jennings along with OUR HOUSE Grief Support Center will be hosting Tennis for Camp Erin - LA at the Braemar Country Club. This exciting all day tennis tournament will be followed by a fun dinner party, raffle and auction, and most importantly all the proceeds will go to an incredible cause.
Camp Erin is a free bereavement camp developed by the Moyer Foundation for children and teens who have experienced the death of someone close. It incorporates fun traditional camp activities with grief processing, and allows children to share their experiences with others who can understand and relate.
All money raised at this event will go directly toward sending children to camp and covering the cost of the weekend long experience. For more information, please visit: www.OurHouse-Grief.org/services/services_camperin
Thank you for your support!
