3.6 million American children are reported as abused, abandoned and neglected. This includes children in our own communities. Royal Family Kids Camps (RFKC) values these children, and has chosen to take tangible action, touching the lives of these children through week long camps throughout the US. These camps DO make a difference
My own foster children have attended these camps for the last 8 years. It was while picking up my children two years ago, that I looked around and noticed that a great number of these children had their belongings in trash bags. It is my goal to get NEW duffle bags to as many children as we can to give them a succesful foundation for camp.
Our starting goal is 100 children attending camp at Portland Christian Center next summer.
Children of abuse, abandonment and neglect do not start their lives with the same advantages as “normal kids.” They are lonely and wounded—abused, abandoned and neglected—in need of hope, and deserving of a better future.These children move from home to home and sometimes on a moments notice, all too often all they have in their lives is the few things they can grab. Wouldn't it be nice to show them that their things are VALUABLE and not trash and give them a decent place to store their "treasures" they collect from camp. The bag would also serve as a positive reminder to the time they spent at camp each and every time they had to pull it out and pack their belongings.
Join my family in helping these kids build a better future, give them a bag of HOPE. You may not be able to be a foster parent, but you CAN positively impact the life of a foster child. :)
