We are Gang Green and we invite you to join us as we compete in the 2nd Annual Day of Champions here in Westport. It is day of fun and activity for us but we are playing and competing for a very good cause. We are raising money to support Experience Camps.
Experience Camps are free, one-week camps for children who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or primary caregiver. It's a place where kids can laugh, cry, play, create, remember the person who died, or forget the grief that weighs them down. It's a place where they can feel "normal", because everyone there has been through something similar and understands what it's like to lose someone important to them. It's a home away from home. And just about everyone will tell you..."It's the best week of the year".
Whether childhood grief directly resonates with you or has just touched the outer perimeter of your life, it's hard to deny the importance of a place where kids can be with other kids who "get it" after losing someone critically important in their life. Experience Camps is that place.
Thanks for helping us help this AMAZING organization!!
With lots of love and gratitude,
