Another successful FUNdraising CAMPaign! Together, with the Instagram Plushie community, we were able to raise a combined total of $872 to send a child to Tx Lions Camp! Plushie Wear sold camp t-shirts and camp care kits. ElleM sold postcards and I had downloadable camp activity packets available for a minimum donation of $10 on Go Fund Me. HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL WHO DONATED AND MADE CAMP A REALITY FOR A CHILD!
And, WE PLUSHIES turned out in droves to camp as well at our annual summer camp, Camp HoopLa HooRay. So many fun activities happened at #campHLHR2020 #camphooplahooray2020 (you can visit those hashtags on Instagram).
We sat around the campfires and sang songs, played instruments and shared stories -some were scary. We had fun planning a little mischief. Cookie Monster gave us some excellent crafting tutorials. The food was superb. The nature hikes were breathtaking (either from the beauty or the physical exertion, hehehe). And, our very skilled medical staff was on hand for a few sprained limbs and a few ouchies.
Elle and I have been hard at work thinking of fun stuff for the campers at this year’s Camp HoopLaHooRay (#campHLHR2020, #camphooplahooray2020), slated for JULY16-19, 2020 Being that the Covid-19 pandemic is still underway, we needed to offer something for the campers and to still help raise funds for one of our preferred charities Texas Lion’s Camp (a summer camp for special needs, handicapped or chronically ill children). Being the Boss Bear, I figured it out and Elle was agreeable.
