We now have 125 registered campers and are on track to exceeding our count from last year (93) because of our two camp locations: Grass Valley (near Sacramento) and Wrightwood (near Los Angeles). As of this writing, we've raised nearly $7100! That's financial assistance for 12 campers.
But we are still far from our goal of $20,000 – enough to support 35 campers that we expect to apply for financial assistance before July.
I also have an announcement that is out of this world! An elementary school teacher from Tracy, CA has donated a hand-made quilt with an awesome outer-space motif to Camp Quest West. It's gorgeous, but don't take my word for it. Go check it out. Everyone who donates $20 or more will be eligible to win this stellar quilt. So, spread the word to your friends and share the link!
Any donation to Camp Quest West after February 1st, 2012, is eligible. I see you already have a donation of $10. If you make another donation to reach $20+ you will be eligble to win this beautiful, hand-made quilt.
You can click here and donate online:
Our address, if you'd rather send a check, is PO Box 50803, Palo Alto, CA 94303. You can make the check out to "Camp Quest West".
Either way, you'll be entered to win the beautiful quilt. We are a 501(c)(3) organization, so your donation is not only supporting freethought but it's tax-deductible.
Thanks for your support,
-David Diskin, President, Camp Quest West
