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.

WE DID IT! $610 RAISED!

We did it y’all! Together, we raised $610 to send a chronically ill, special needs or handicapped child to Summer Camp at Texas Lions Camp this summer. In the previous post, you read about my GoFundMe campaign and my Camp Kits I offered for sale. Y’all answered the call by donating or purchasing a Camp Kit. Also, Plushie Wear made the official Camp T-shirts and will donate a portion of their sales to the cause. (Thank you Froggie and Gator and Crew)

Camp Hoop La Hoo Ray postcards

And now, I have souvenir post cards of Camp Hoop La Hoo Ray (by elleM) available in the Esty shop “Bears Howse Mercantile“. A portion of the sales of these professionally printed postcards will be donated to Texas Lions Camp. These cards come 3 in a set for $7 (shipping included) and are representative of the last 3 years of our plushie camp that plushies from all over the world on Instagram attend via a #. We just completed the 2019 camp and I’m already making plans for the 2020 camp.

Go check out Plushie Wear for a Hooman or plushie sized Camp HLHR 2019 Tshirt (sold through end of July) and then get your postcards from Bears Howse Mercantile. All of which are special souvenirs from a fun time at Camp Hoop La Hoo Ray (and most importantly, help a child attend camp and make happy memories as well).
