Help us throw the biggest and best birthday party for our abused and neglected campers so, for many of them, can celebrate their birthday for the first time!!
From the moment our campers get off the bus on Monday morning, we CELEBRATE them! These 48 beautiful children have never been treated with unconditional love and care they deserve.
We continue celebrating them with a huge birthday party at camp with bouncy houses, birthday gifts, silly string fights, a magic show, and birthday cake. For many of our campers, their birthdays have never been celebrated. We have had some campers where their foster care worker had to tell them their birthday date. One year at camp, when a 10-year old boy was given his cupcake with a candle in it after singing "Happy Birthday," he asked what to do with the candle.
Something we take for granted and assume every child knows and celebrates (their birthday), is not what we experience with our campers. So the Birthday Party we throw for all of them is our way of showing them "You are special, you are worthy, we are so glad you were born!!!
In January of this year, we lost our 15-year old daughter Hannah to a short-term, intense illness. Her joy for life and her smile were contagious! Although we can no longer celebrate her life with her here on earth, we want to spread "Hannah's Joy" and her legacy by raising all the funds to cover the cost of our camp's Birthday Party, so we can truly celebrate the lives of our 48 campers!!
Will you help me spread Hannah's Joy by helping cover the entire cost to run our Birthday Party? Here are some ways you can donate:
- Sponsor the entire Birthday Party for $3,000
- Cost of the bouncy houses: $600
- Cost of the pizza party: $500
- Cost of party decorations: $150
- Cost of a birthday bag for 1 camper (48 campers total): $35
Thank you on behalf of our Royal Family KIDS Camp #286, our campers, and for helping me carry on "Hannah's Joy!"
Your donation of any amount is tax deductible.
