Last weekend four of our volunteers from National Charity League, EL Dorado Hills, represented Team Celebrate and volunteered at a birthday party at a summer camp for foster kids. The idea of this party was to celebrate all of the kids who probably did not have a party on their real birthday.
Along with helping at the party, our volunteers gave the kids the goody bags that we had made earlier and also talked to the kids about the cards we wrote for them to open as camp mail.
Our volunteers had an amazing time, and really had a life changing experience. Here is a what one of our volunteers, Robin, had to say about her experience:
“What a gift it was to be able to share in the birthday party of 24 children who may or may not have been celebrated this year. We learned that 2 of the campers last year didn’t even know when their birthday was, until they were told by their counselor at camp.
All children deserve to be loved and celebrated! Lizzie, you have started an amazing and much needed charity. I am so grateful to be able to be apart of it!” -Robin L.
Robin’s message proves that what we are doing truly is needed and is making a difference!!
A huge thank you to Robin, Shelby, Rita and Victoria for volunteering and representing Team Celebrate in such a positive way!
Thanks for celebrating!
