GivingTuesday 2017: let's make #MoombaMagic
Camp Moomba is a life-changing opportunity for 6 -17 year olds living with HIV, and who have a family member living with HIV. Guided by our philosophy of "friends together having fun," campers swim, paddleboard, hike, climb, dance and be their full selves without needing to keep HIV a secret. It is the perfect mix of camp magic and peer education, led by amazing volunteers, a dedicated nursing team, passionate staff, and extremely happy campers.
Each year, we welcome approximately 40 campers from Western Canada at no cost to the families that we work with. We know firsthand that families affected by HIV aren't always able to afford camp programs, and that there are too few places for young people to learn and speak openly about HIV. Bringing this program to life costs $1,200 per camper. The generosity of donors like you make our programming possible.
This GivingTuesday, our goal is to raise $6,000; enough for 5 campers to spend a week with us at camp. Whether you're able to contirbute $5 or $500, your gift will ensure campers can build community, confidence, and connection. Please help us spread the word about GivingTuesday, using the hashtag #MoombaMagic, and consider making a gift to our program today.
