Heaven On Wheels looks at a great charity for kids with cancer
“If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?”
1 John 3:17 NIV
Heaven On Wheels is on the road right now! We’ve been traveling for over a week in our namesake RV, heading to a variety of National Parks and Monuments. Currently we’re in the midst of God’s creation here at Glacier National Park in Montana.
One of our goals is to highlight charitable organizations that our readers and fellow campers can support with their time, treasure, or talent. Today’s focus is on Care Camps, a non-profit organization created in 1984 by the Kampgrounds of America (KOA) Owner’s Association to let kids with cancer “attend oncology camps, where they can escape from their pain and suffering, receive their treatments and have lots of fun while being with other kids just like them.”
What better place to get away from the worries of cancer than the great outdoors, camping with other kids? Care Camps cost about $1,800 per child per week, and your tax-deductible donations give children with cancer the opportunity to enjoy fresh air and fun instead of bleak hospital rooms and treatments.
There are plenty of ways you can help Care Camps other than giving money; if you are an Amazon shopper, you can find Care Camps on Amazon Smile and for every purchase you make, 0.5% goes to the group. Donations of vehicles are also happily accepted.
