Stuff About Me:

Founded in 2006, by two adoptees who felt fortunate to have been taken in by loving families, the Felix Organization's goal is to change the lives of children in foster care with fresh air, the arts, and the opportunity to leave behind difficult circumstances for a week at camp. Camp Felix, the main initiative builds social skills, independence, confidence, friendship, and awareness of the joy and fulfillment that comes through the arts. Every $500 dollars sends a child in foster care to Camp Felix and provides mentoring of their talents throughout the year. Dance This Way, includes the children and teens who receive help and camp scholarships from The Felix Organization, and Dance this Way is the main fundraiser for the Felix Organization.   Each year at the Dance This Way event, a family event that the children in foster care can attend, the Felix Organization gives awards to former campers, The Dreammaker Awards.

Please join me in supporting these future dreammakers by giving to this wonderful event. Any amount is greatly appreciated as I work toward the goal of helping a young person in foster care to go to Camp Felix and have this ongoing encouragement during years in foster care.  Dance This Way will be held on Sunday, May 7, 2017.   The event celebrates Foster Care Awareness month and the continued growth of the Felix Organization providing services to enrich the lives of youth in foster care.  I am going up to NYC to attend the event this year and will be glad to share pictures and news with you after the event. Thanks for whatever you can contribute. Every dollar raised at Dance This Way goes directly to helping young people in foster care have a super experience at Camp Felix and the ongoing mentoring.
