Friends and Family,
We're almost there! Just 2 days left to raise $130 to reach my birthday goal of $1000 for Circle Camps for Grieving Children.
If you have already donated, thank you so much again! Want to know what else you can do? "Like" us on Facebook, post something in your status, or email a friend about Circle Camps for Grieving Children.
Thanks so much. Your support means a lot to me.
Circle Camps for Grieving Children is a 501(c)3 organizations that provides free, week-long overnight camp programs for children who have experienced the death of a parent. Our mission is to offer campers the adventures and fun of living and playing together at overnight camps, while providing supportive environments in which they can share their grief.
"Dear Daddy, I came here to cry for you but ended up laughing instead."
Those are the words of a camper who has thrived in one of our Circle Camps for Grieving Children programs.
I remember taking a couple of kids out in a canoe one day. We paddled to the far end of the lake and were taking in the scenery. That's when one of the kids opened up about her mom's death. We sat there, slowly dipping our paddles in the water and shared special memories of those we've lost. It was a time I believe will always stay with me.
A few minutes later, we were splashing each other, singing and laughing as we raced back to the docks to get in before the end of the period.
That's Circle Camps for Grieving Children!
My birthday was Monday and it would mean a lot if my friends would make a contribution to Circle Camps for Grieving Children. It's an amazing place where our campers have lots of fun and also can share their grief in a supportive environment. We have 145 girls at Circle of Tapawingo, our first camp.
This summer, Circle Camps is expanding our program to a camp in New Hampshire and one in California. Please take a look at our video so you can see the difference we're making in the lives of our campers. I hope you will support our growth!
Circle Camps for Grieving Children is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and the girls attend for free.
Please help me reach my goal by making a contribution to Circle Camps for Grieving Children.
