It's KOOL To Send A Kid To Camp!
December 17-21, 2012
Itís time again to spread a little holiday cheer to some children who could use our help. Itís time for our 14th Annual Camp Ta-Kum-Ta-Thon on KOOL 105!
Now in its 29th year, Camp Ta-Kum-Ta is a year-round camp for children from Vermont and New York who have, or have had cancer. There is never a charge to the family of the child, instead all camp expenses are covered by donations from the public. Some of these expenses include essentials to any camp like food and shelter and activities, but because Camp Ta-Kum-Ta is special, we also need to include chemotherapy, a fully-equipped on-site medical facility, and handicap accessibility to everything possible.
Make a general donation online TODAY or create your own fundraising page and get your friends and family to join you in supporting this fun event by making a donation to your personal fundraising page!!
Be sure to tune in December 17-21, 2012 as we talk with the Campers, the Staff, and the Volunteers who make Camp TaKumTa such a special place! Every year we hear from listeners who organize events designed specifically to benefit our Camp Ta-Kum-Ta thon. Check out some of these ideas, or brainstorm your own idea -- and get started today!
