There’s an age-old saying that, in my opinion, has never been more true…
“Tis better to give than to receive.”
And the holiday season is the perfect time for you to give back to the gluten free community!
In the spirit of the giving season, I want to bring your attention to a fundraiser I’m helping promote this week for a great gluten-free cause. A cause that is near and dear to my heart, gluten free summer camp for kids!
With all the birthday parties, classroom parties, sports banquets, etc. that our gluten sensitive kiddos navigate throughout the year (such troopers they are!), can you imagine how it would feel to spend five days with other gluten free kids having nothing but fun and not worrying one single bit about the food? To be able to put aside all their grownup concerns and just be a carefree kid like everyone else…the mere thought brings tears to my eyes.
This week, giving just $2 of your hard-earned money will go toward providing scholarships for children to attend a gluten-free summer camp hosted by the Celiac Disease Foundation (CDF) next summer in Southern California.
And there’s a bonus because for this week only, donating $2 doesn’t mean you’re just donating $2…
From today through Sunday, December 25, 2011, Gluten-Free Saver has partnered with Van’s Natural Foods to raise money to send children to next summer’s CDF-sponsored summer camp, and Van’s is matching all donations up to $1,000!
The goal is to raise $2,000 – and when you donate $2, you’re really contributing $4!
You can read more about the fundraiser here: www.glutenfreesaver.com.
The summer camp will be held in San Bernardino in Southern California from July 30 to August 3, 2012, and it’s open to all 7 – 15 year old gluten intolerant and gluten-sensitive children – not just those diagnosed with celiac disease.
Sure, receiving gifts this time of year is always fun, but the feeling of knowing that your generous donation of just $2 can bring a tremendous amount of joy to a young child… well, now that’s priceless.
Please help reach the goal of donating $2,000 to the Celiac Disease Foundation this week. Every $2 helps! And if you think about it…that’s less than the cost of 2 slices of gluten free bread!
P.S. 100% of all donations will go directly to Celiac Disease Foundation.
P.P.S. If you’re feeling extra generous this holiday season, and you aren’t limited to donating just $2 – you can give as much money as your heart desires!
P.P.P.S. I want to go to camp too! Do you think I could pass for a more “mature looking” 15 year old? Nevermind, don’t answer that.
