Dear Camp Shout Out Donors:
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,Nothing is going to get better. It's not.” - Dr. Seuss, The Lorax
Thanks to each one of you for being 'someone who cares'. Your donations have allowed us to provide scholarships for each camper in financial need in order for them to attend Camp Shout Out: Youth Who Stutter 2014.
Many of our campers who need financial support have limited resources at home. Often school personnel step in and help with the application process and are vested in the success of their student. Such was the experience of a first year camper, “J”.
When we sent out an email to “J’s” school based speech therapist letting her know that we would be able to provide “J” with a scholarship this is the email we received back:
“That is wonderful news!! I've already communicated this information to both the student and his mother. His mom was excited and J. was over the top when I told him.....if you could only have seen his smile. He has never had a camping experience before and to be able to do it in connection with his fluency is such a wonderful opportunity for him. (As a side note, we are ALL rooting for him here at school. His general and special education teachers teared up when I told them today:)”
We know that Camp Shout Out will change “J’s” life and we also know this would not be possible without your support.
We hope you will continue with us on this journey as together, we help change the world for children who stutter, and help children who stutter change the world!
With Great Gratitude!!
The Camp Shout Out Kids!
