Giving Tuesday 2018

It may only be November, but in YL our thoughts are turning to SUMMER!!

We just found out where we are going to camp this summer and will open up registration for our camp trips the end of this month. In order to make our trips affordable for some of our students, we have hosted a #GivingTuesday fundraiser for the past few years. We have been so blessed by the response each year and your giving has in turn blessed many students. 

All over the world, individuals and businesses give to their favorite charity on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. I hope you will join me this year in our effort to raise $5,000 for our camp scholarship by November 27. 

This year we are raising funds for two things. First, every summer we look for high school students to attend camp with our Capernaum students. Being a 'buddy' at camp is a fun, challenging and life giving time for these students. It is also a joy for our disabled students to be cared for and loved by able-bodied peers. But each year it is harder to find students who can afford to pay $400 to go with us. This year we are setting aside half of our #GivingTuesday campership money to use for these students. 

Second, every year we have students who want to go to camp, but financial difficulties at home make it hard. We never want to leave anyone at home. So, we will be using half the money we raise to meet the needs of these students.

Your gift will make it easier for students to go with their friends and leaders to camp this summer. If everyone recieving this email gave $25 we would meet our goal and would be able to offer payment assistance to many  students. Your gift may not seem like much, but the rewards for a teen could be life changing. I encourage you to give as much as you can.

Please follow this LINK to give online or you may send your check to the Young Life address below. I am excited to see how many join our 'team' this summer in bringing the Good News to students. We have reservations for 100 spots this summer....your gift will help make the trip a reality for some.

Thanks for making a difference in the lives of students in our community. May your #GivingTuesday gift bring joy to a student and to YOU. The giving link is open now- no need to wait til November 27. I will post updates below.
