WHAT IS #GIVINGTUESDAY?
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
HOW IS CAMP CHALLENGE PARTICIPATING?
#GivingTuesday is December 1! This year, we are raising funds to replace Hobart the dishwasher. He’s so old no one can remember exactly when he joined the team, but he’s been around at least 40 years! Stressful mid-camp breakdowns 3 of the last 4 summers and a call this spring from our equipment rep informing us they couldn’t continue to service him because replacement parts are no longer manufactured made the decision to retire him necessary. A replacement unit will cost around $11,000 which is a significant amount, but those $30 and $60 donations really add up when a large number of people give. Just send a dollar for every dish, cup, or fork you and your kids have gotten dirty at camp over the years and we’ll hit our goal quicker’n you can yell “HOT PLATES!”
HOW CAN I HELP?
You can make a donation of any amount. A donation of $30 sends one camper’s plate through the dishwasher, $60 sends two plates, $360 sends a whole tray! As donations are received we will keep everyone updated on progress made toward the goal.
