Camp HoopLa HooRay 2020

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.

I CREATED A GoFundMe! AND…AND!!….

Hey Y’all! I now have a GoFundMe set up to donate to! Here’s the link: gf.me/u/rid23y The campaign is called “Camp HoopLaHooRay 2019 FUNdraiser”. I’m trying to raise funds to send a child to Summer Camp this summer. I thought since we plushies have attended Camp HoopLaHooRay going on 4 years now, it’s time we give back and help a Special Needs, Chronically Ill or Handicapped child attend camp.

I’m giving money to the Texas Lions Camp who serves these children. The camp DOES NOT CHARGE the families for the week-long camp. So, they need our help to sponsor a kiddo. I’m raising $1000 towards this cause and have til May 15, 2019 to do it. You can help by donating via the above link. No amount is too small to give, because it all adds up and we plushies can do anything together.

ANOTHER FUN THING I’M DOING TO RAISE MONEY IS…. *drum roll please* I’m putting together a CAMP KIT 2019! I will sell it for $50 *plus shipping* ($25 of the sale price will go to Texas Lions Camp). ONLY 30 KITS AVAILABLE UNTIL APRIL 16TH ** SO PRE-ORDER/PRE-PAY BEFORE THEN TO SECURE YOURS** In this CAMP KIT will be: Custom plushie sized (size options) Camp HLHR Sleeping Bag (made by Bears Howse Mercantile) valued at $16, Official Camp plushie sized (size options) HLHR T-shirt (made by Plushiewear ) valued at $18, Official Camp Pennant, Official Camp Postcard created by @1elleM , Texas Lions Camp activity/souvenir, snacks and miscellaneous camp supplies.
