It is fall outside and it is Thanksgiving week, but in the Young Life calendar it is the kick-off of our Summer Camp registration! We have our dates, our camps and our prices. All we need to do is sign up the students. Our registration site opened this week and our leaders and campaigners are sharing stories of last summer’s trips. With so many things vying for the attention and time of students in the summer, we hope to get a jump start and get YL on their calendar now!
Here’s where we need your help. Every year we price our trips to break even, but sometimes the price is still too much. So we offer scholarships to many students. We want everyone to be able to go, regardless of their financial ability to pay. This is where YOU come in. Can you join us in helping more students attend this year?
Tuesday, November 28 is designated Giving Tuesday. It’s a national effort to raise funds for non-profit organizations. After a weekend of eating, celebration and spending, Tuesday is a day to give back. I hope you will join our efforts to raise $10,000 in campership funds. This year a generous donor has agreed to match every gift given to our campership account up to $5,000. What a dream come true for students here in our area. Your gift of $50 becomes $100 and pays for one student's deposit. Your gift of $100 allows a leader to go for free. Your gift of $1200 covers the cost of one of our buses. Will you join us this year?
We hope to take 150 students and leaders to camp this summer. You can find the dates of our trips on the GivingTuesday page on our website. You can also see a daily gift update.
There are a few other ways you can help our students this year.
First, if you are in need of any live wreaths, we are selling them for $25. Our final order goes in on November 30, so if you are interested, please sign up HERE. Wreaths will be delivered to you between December 2-4 (local deliveries only). $10 of every wreath goes into our campership account.
Second, if you love coffee you can also support our camp account with any purchase you make from the 41& Change coffee company. Check out the details HERE.  
Coffee is a great Christmas gift also! This is an ongoing fundraiser.
Third, if you purchase anything from Amazon and use this LINK, Young Life gets up to 4% back.
Thanks for joining us to reach more students. Thanks for giving our leaders more ways to help out their students. Thanks for believing in this ministry. May your #GivingTuesday gift bring joy to a student and to you! The giving link is open right now, no need to wait til Tuesday! The matching gift drive ends December 10, so please respond before then. 
Diane Hidey – for all the YL and WL leaders!!
