We would like to ask for your consideration of our charity, CAM FUND, as you head into the summer season of parties and events.  We’re not sure about you, but we are seeing and hearing more and more about donation requests, in lieu of gifts, on invitations.  As you can imagine, trying to build awareness for our charity, with limited resources, is a challenge.  We are continually trying to reach the funds necessary to continue our cause.  The donations we secure grant money to scientists who are conducting medical research into innovative therapies and cures for childhood brain cancer.  While we cannot bring back our grandson, Caiden, we can work to redirect our grief onto a positive path to help find an answer and cure for this awful disease.

The CAM FUND has been secured under The Community Foundation for the CSRA’s non-profit umbrella (cfcsra.org). 100% of the money we raise, through fundraisers and donations, will be directed to scientists who are committed to finding treatments and cures for children fighting these brain tumors.

At your next party or event, please consider asking your guests to make a donation to the CAM FUND, in lieu of gifts.  Donations are easily made by clicking the “DONATE” button or you can write a check, made payable to: The Community Foundation for the CSRA, c/o CAM FUND.

Feel free to share this idea with all of your friends, relatives, neighbors and co-workers!
