Is Brian REALLY gonna jump in ??
You've been telling me to go jump in a lake forever
... now I'm gonna do it
... in the winter
... for a great cause!
I’m taking the PLUNGE for Camp Sunshine!
Please help me by either making a donation (no donation is too small) OR signing up to PLUNGE with me! I’m sure it will be a WARM day in the middle of winter. All funds raised will help send children with life-threatening illnesses and their families to Camp Sunshine.
So, why am I plunging this year?
After much coaxing from the Mansouri family, I've decided that making a donation is no longer enough. This year, I'm jumping in!
Either that, or the promise to wear a cool 80's outfit...
But the most important reason is the cause.
Camp Sunshine has the distinction of being the only program in the nation whose mission is to address the impact of life-threatening illnesses on every member of the immediate family – the ill child, the parents, and the siblings. The year-round program is free of charge to each family and includes medical and psychosocial support and services, recreational programs, accommodations, and meals. Since its inception, Camp Sunshine has offered comfort, hope, and support to over 43,500 individuals from 48 states and 23 countries.
The families who come to Camp Sunshine have children diagnosed with cancer, hematologic conditions, renal disease, systemic lupus erythematosus, or may have undergone solid organ transplantation. They attend illness-specific sessions of varying lengths where they have the opportunity to solidify and renew their relationships while meeting others facing similar challenges. Bereavement programming is also provided for families who have lost a child to an illness.
So, help the team to raise our goal of $15,000 for this wonderful charity. And, come watch us! We'll need your encouragement, and some warm thoughts for afterwards.
And did I mention... cool 80s outfits?
