THE CAUSE Hole in the Wall Camp
In 1988, Paul Newman opened The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Connecticut so that children coping with serious illnesses could have a special hideout where they could simply be kids. The Camp, which served 288 campers its first year, has grown to serve 20,000 children and family members now experiencing “a different kind of healing” annually. Each year, 2,500 are served onsite and 19,000 visits by the Hospital Outreach Program bring the fun and friendship of Camp into more than 20 sites throughout the Northeast – all free of charge.
I'm not really the one making the difference in these kids lives. It is YOU. YOU YOU YOU. I may be pounding the pavement, but it's the money you donate that is the difference. It's palpable. It goes beyond this page. It changes lives. So, thank you. We appriciate it. I appriciate the gamble you're taking on me to finish this crazy race and on behalf of HITW, thank you for your generous support of their amazing mission.
