Sample Messages:

Board Member:

Dear

I have the privilege of serving as a Board Member at CAMP, an organization that provides year round programming for individuals with special needs. Each year, over 1,000 children and adults with special needs spend a week during the summer, or weekends throughout the school year, experiencing so many amazing things they could never do anywhere else – horseback riding, canoeing, arts and crafts, archery, swimming, outdoor cooking, paintball, and a camp dance. During their time at CAMP, campers gain independence, self-esteem, make friends, and most importantly, they realize they get to be themselves, and not their disabilities.

Tomorrow, Thursday, September 10th is the Big Give, San Antonio’s 24-hour online giving day running from Midnight to Midnight. Your gift of $10 or more means every camper gets to participate in all camp activities – regardless of their disabilities, and every parent gets a rest – regardless of their family income.

Please join me by making a gift through my personal fundraising page using the link below, to ensure that our campers with special needs continue to have these incredible experiences.

Thank you, I can’t thank you enough for your support!
