Dear Footpath Friends,
Thanks to our supporters like you, and matching funds from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Footpath’s November 2017 Thankful I Can Give campaign raised a grand total of:
This amount will be enough to cover TWO additional summer camp sessions in 2018 which will help us reach over ONE HUNDRED kids in need! Consequently, we will double the number of kids we’ll send to camp compared to 2017. We could not do this without our amazing team members and incredible donors. THANK YOU!
If you didn’t get a chance to donate during this campaign, you can still easily make a donation to Footpath by clicking HERE. There are A FEW DAYS LEFT to add donation deductions to your 2017 taxes!
Please know your donation is powerful to Footpath’s mission. Here are what some Footpath campers are saying about their summer camp experience:
“My favorite thing about camp was the campfire because everybody can express their feelings.”
“Camp changed me because now I know I like to go outside.”
“The best part about camp was making new friends because you have people you can talk to.”
“Camp is important because you can get off your phones and explore nature.”
“I learned that I am a brave person!”
“I learned archery and I got THREE bullseyes!”
“Picking up a chicken was the BEST!”
“My favorite part of camp was the climbing wall because I got over my fears.”
“Camp made me more used to the outdoors and I learned talking chances can turn out well.”
Your generosity allows us to do important work. Giving at-risk youth life-changing adventures in nature simply could not be done without your incredible individual support. We are so grateful for YOU! Together we are CHANGING LIVES!
We are so excited for this upcoming year, which will be filled with inspiration and growth for Footpath thanks to you. We can’t wait to tell you all about the new adventures Footpath kids will get to experience! Here’s to a happy and healthy 2018 for all!
Mary Macias, Footpath Foundation President
