Send Rivka to Camp!

Rivka is 10 years old, and has Fragile X Syndrome. She's very intelligent and high functioning, but has severe deficits in math, spatial coordination, social skills, sensory integration and fine motor control.

She has the opportunity to attend a wonderful camp this summer, where she can just be a regular kid, with caring counselors and a 3 to 1 camper/staff ratio.


The cost of going to Camp Nageela is $2,500. I'm applying for a grant to reduce the cost by $1,000, but I still need to cover the other $1,500 plus airfare and transportation from the airport to camp.


Rivka desperately wants to go to this camp, especially the swimming and horseback riding part! I'm on disability and have a very limited income, so I'm trying to find a way to come up with the balance. Any little bit you could spare would go a long way.


We have to get the money in to secure her place as soon as possible, so time it ticking.


Thank you!


BTW, we wanted to send thank you cards to everyone, but gofundme said that it had to be $5.00 and up. Let me know if you want an original masterpiece!
