Giving Tuesday 2016 - Camp Attitude
This year, on Tuesday, November 29, 2016 I Love Apparel is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving.
Last year, more than 45,000 organizations in 71 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday. Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities.
We invite you to join the movement and to help get out and give this November 29th!
We have partnered with Camp Attitude in Foster Oregon this year, committing to donate 25% of sales on 11/29.
Camp Attitude is an amazing organization that provides a fully inclusive week long summer camp experience to special needs kiddos and their entire families. To make it even better, they do this for absolutely no cost to the families! The kids are paired with a buddy who is their companion for the entire week, spending one on one time with that kid, and giving the parents what might be their only break for the entire year.
"Camp Attitude Oregon, Inc. is one of America's premier fully wheelchair accessible camping facilities located in the foothills of Central Oregon. Our camp is for children and adults with Special Needs, their siblings and parents. The weeklong summer camps are five days in length. Every family who attends the camp comes FREE of charge.
We provide a wonderful experience for year round usage and to serve the ever increasing number of people with diverse Special Needs, in helping people become emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, physically well, and spiritually alive.
We have a team of trained volunteers who provide support for each child or adult for each day of the camp, creating a special friendship with each camper they serve. All of the camp trails are asphalt. We have cozy rooms, craft and meeting areas, restrooms, playground area, a fishing pond, & dining area is fully accessible.
Activities which are all fully accessible may include but are not limited to water sports, fishing, swimming, boating, horse program, arts and crafts, nature walks environmental educational activities. Special music with camp songs, videos, skits, guest speakers and plenty of laughs and good times, concluding with a bonfire with s'mores."
We encourage you to use this day as an opportunity to join us in supporting this amazing organization, or find a local organization that means something to you. We just hope you'll get involved! Camp Attitude and 1000’s of other organizations desperately need your help. Whether it's your time, money, or skills, your generosity can make a world of difference!
