Helping Families in Need
The Portland Polar Dip's sole objective is to raise money to help send children with life-threatening illnesses and their families to Camp Sunshine. As some of you may know, organizations such as this are near and dear to me. As unbearable and nauseating as it may sound to go jump in the ocean off the coast of Maine in the middle of winter, it pales in comparison to what these families have to deal with on a daily basis. On top of the daily fear of losing your child, imagine hospital bills eating up your entire life savings. Being left with barely enough to live on and thus nothing extra to help put a smile on your suffering child's face. There are plenty of families out there in this unfortunate situation. Even though an event like this won't be able to help all of them at least it stands to put a smile on the face of a few very deserving families' faces.
So with that I ask you to think about these families and make a donation. No matter how big or small, every dollar helps. Thanks for your consideration.
