BENEFITING: CAMP SOUTHERN GROUND INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 27, 2012
You’ve all heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, right? Well, this year Giving Tuesday has its place on the calendar. On November 27th, Camp Southern Ground is joining a huge collective of charities, families and individuals to put the giving back into the giving season. Won't you help us make Giving Tuesday a record breaking fundraising day for Camp Southern Ground.
Camp Southern Ground is the passion project of GRAMMY-Award winning musician Zac Brown. Currently in the development phase, the camp is being designed for youth, ages 7-17, of diverse abilities, socioeconomic backgrounds, race and religion to come together to learn life skills and teamwork in a positive, healthy and organic environment.
One of the only camps of it’s kind, the programs and activities will mainstream typical peers with children with special needs, realizing the importance of teaching campers to share their similarities and appreciate their differences.
And especially for those children with special needs such as Autism, Camp Southern Ground is specifically designed to offer a traditional camp experience to those children who might not otherwise get that opportunity.
To date, Zac and his wife Shelly have generously purchased almost 500 acres of land in Fayetteville, GA, and hired Perkins and Will architects to design the camp buildings and related areas.
Our goal now is to start the capital campaign to execute the vision and open the camp as soon as possible so we can begin creating those unforgettable childhood experiences.
We have partnered with #GivingTuesday because we wholeheartedly believe in giving and giving back to make a difference.
