Hello LG Fam!

I'm a student at UCSD, and I'm a part of an organization called Camp Kesem. We're a nonprofit organization that sends children whose families are affected by cancer to a week of camp. As many of you probably know, cancer is a disease that devastates entire families.

For young children, it's a horrible experience to go through...so we try to be there for them and make this week one of the best weeks of their lives. I've been a counselor with this organization in the past, and honestly I was completely taken aback at the impact this organization has on these children. That's why I want to work with them again, and help these children in any way that I can.

I know that basketball is what brings us together, but some things go beyond that. I hope that you can financially support my efforts to fundraise for this week of camp for these children.

Here's the link to my gofundme page. I would be incredibly thankful if you were willing to support.

Thanks!

Unfortunately I'm not in a position to donate at all right now (got cleaned out at Christmas )

However, I can vouch for Camp Kesem being an EXTREMELY cool organization that provides an amazing experience for kids. My girlfriend was heavily involved in Kesem throughout college for the UCSC chapter (and still serves on the advisory board after graduation), and I volunteered a couple years ago myself. Never went to camp as a counselor, but I had the chance to visit camp last summer and see it firsthand, as well as talk to some of the campers and see the types of relationships they formed with the counselors. It's absolutely magical, and really makes a difference in these kids' lives.

So if you can, please donate. Trust me, it's an awesome cause.

I've actually been a regular donator at my UCLA chapter ever since me and my ex (who was a camp counselor) got involved in college. Best of luck to you and it's a wonderful cause!

Done. Good luck, and thanks for donating your time and effort for a worthy cause. My daughter does something similar (RAD Camp) for disabled children & adults.
