The Savage Girls Pay it Forward:
Last summer, my girls (Reese, Charlie, and Maizie) got the opportunity to go to an overnight summer camp made just for kids who have lost a parent/guardian or sibling. It was the most amazing experience of their lives. They were scared to go and almost got cold feet with fears of being away from me for six days and five nights. Let's just say that those fears are gone and now, even four months later, it's all they talk about. They are so excited to go back, they ask on a weekly basis how long until camp starts.
Experience Camp is a gift that can't be rivaled. The counselors, who are some of the most amazing people on earth, are all volunteers and the camp itself doesn't cost us a dime. This year my girls want to give back to the camp that gave them so much and will likely give back to them for years and years to come. The girls this year are asking for donations be made to this fund in lieu of gifts for their birthday (December 16th). Donations of any size are helpful and I can't imagine a better cause.
Thank you in advance, my friends!
Love, Nellie, Reese, Charlie, and Maizie
This past summer marked our 10th year of Experience Camps. In 2009, we held our first program with 27 boys at Camp Manitou and we've been off and running ever since. Next summer, we will have over 700 campers at 5 locations around the country. It is through the people who believe in us that we've been able to grow as fast as we have, and yet there's so much more to do.
Our volunteers, campers, families, partners, influencers, and supporters are the loudly ticking heart of this organization. Please join us in sharing the message, sharing your own story, and filling the fuel tank of this engine so we can keep reaching the kids who need us.
