Camden's Cause ~ Fighting Homelessness

$1,548 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 51 people in 64 months
This is my son, Camden. He has created, Camden's Cause, in hopes to spread kindness throughout the Richmond and surrounding areas. He has a special love of helping the homeless. He has started collecting gently used backpacks and filling them with warm clothing, food and personal toiletry items. Each bag, filled and ready to hand out, costs roughly $20.  His goal is to reach the younger generation in hopes to inspire other children to come up with ways to help others in need. He would like his peers to know the feeling of giving from the heart, as there are no video games, ipads, cell phones or any materialistic item that can compare to the joy that comes from giving to others.  Please help Camden to continue his good works!

Thank you for your donations and support of Camden's Cause. We are currently in great need of funds to help provide safe, warm housing for some of our homeless friends. The east coast will experience a severe cold front this weekend, with temperatures expected to drop as low as 8 degrees!!! This poses life threatening conditions for many of our friends that call the city streets "home".

***Every $60 donation provides a safe night of shelter, a warm bed and a hot meal for our local homeless.

THANK YOU, FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION!!!

Wow! Only $400 dollars to go :) Camden is so excited to reach his goal!!! For those that have donated, we truly are grateful for your generosity. We are looking forward to purchasing the necessities needed to keep our local homeless fed, safe and warm.
Homelessness has no ethnic background, age, gender or religion... It's our responsibility as human beings to help one another. Please, don't turn a blind eye. These are human beings that need our attention. Join Camden's Cause, to make a difference in someone's life today.

"I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer not neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again." - Anonymous

Hello, my name is Janae Brown and I am 13 years old. It has always been my passion to help others. Even though one time I made a couple of bags with a lot of the same things that Camden put in his, I never really got the chance to give them out. The other day my mother was about to throw a lot of food away that we don't eat. But I asked her not to throw it in the trash because I can find something to do with it. I just have one question, how exactly did Camden get started?
