I work at Tropical Smoothie Cafe, and every year we spend a significant amount of time around the summer raising money for this amazing camp.
Camp Sunshine is a retreat for children with life threatening illnesses and their families. Its a place to go where the family can spend a week having fun and doing activities together instead of focusing solely on the stress that comes with having a life threatening illness. Families have an opportunity to rebuild their relationships together, and meet other families facing similar challenges. Another distinctive component of Camp Sunshine is the medical facilities and professional staff that are available 24-hours a day to address the taxing physical needs of children with intrusive diseases.
The camp is run by volunteers, and its free of charge for the families who attend it, but they fully rely on donations to be able to send a family there. It costs about $2,000 to send each family to Camp Sunshine. My goal is to raise $2,000 so we can send a family!!! Two thousand dollars might sound big but I KNOW that its possible, and I KNOW I can do it with everyone’s help!!
Every single donation counts so don’t feel obligated to donate a big amount. If everybody reading this donated one dollar, I could potentially raise thousands of dollars!! Being diagnosed with cancer or any other terminal illnesses is truly a horrible thing and Camp Sunshine is a place for these children to go to just have fun… so please consider donating because all the money goes directly to making these kids happy!!! Lets do this!!
Even if you can’t donate, it would even just help to reblog it as a signal boost! This honestly means alot to me and I’m really determined to meet my goal cause I just really really wanna make these kids smile and just be happy for a week!!
