Camp Bon Coeur, or Camp Good Heart,, is one of my favorite nonprofits.

Each July, campers who have cardiovascular issues come to a camp where they can just be themselves. Staffed full-time with medical professionals (all who volunteer their time), this camp allows children with serious medical issues to just be themselves.

This year, I’m trying to raise enough money to send one camper, Byron, to the July camp. It's $1,500 for him to attend.

Byron, 15, is rad. Last year was his first time at camp and he won best male camper because of the smile always on his face. (See photo above, the dude is cool.)

Since camp ended in June he has had three open-heart surgeries and has been in the hospital for more than a month. He’s strong, amazing and could use your support and inspiration.

Please help me get him to camp next year.

This camp is amazing as are the staff and volunteers who make it run. Help them succeed.

If we go past our goal, additional funds will go to his Family Camp fee. If, for some reason, Byron has to miss either camp program, the money will go to another camp child and family.

To encourage you to give, I’m offering some fun origami gifts depending on what you give. (All will be created by thinking of Byron and wishing him well.)

            $20 donation, 1 origami crane

            $40 donation, 20 tiny origami cranes in a box

             $50 birds not in a cage, a Christmas ornament                      (Only three available)

             $60 origami balloons over white Christmas lights

             $100 donation, a dozen origami crane bouquet or               a half dozen origami lily bouquet

             $150 donation, a dozen origami lily bouquet

            $1,500 donation, 1,000 origami cranes and string to build your own Senbazuru, a Japanese tradition that brings a wish from the Gods.

Hey Folks - here's a note from Susannah Craig with Camp Bon Coeur.

Thank you so much for helping send Byron to camp! He has been in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit for almost 2 months. Yesterday, he was finally moved to a regular room. Great news!

Byron's family has been by his side this whole time and as you can imagine, they are all very anxious to go home. Please send him healing thoughts an that he will be well enough to go home in time for Christmas.

All of the kind donations and your generosity is helping to boost his spirits. I can't thank you enough!
