Social media has brought a lot of good into my life and one of the best things is friends. Though we met online, Jen Reeves and her family have become close friends in real life. Her eight-year-old daughter, Jordan, was born with one hand and that has led to her website Born Just Right’s focus on telling stories about how everyone is just right. It offers support from the parenting side of limb differences as well as guest writers who offer the adult perspective. And of course kid views from Miss J.
Each year, Jen raises funds for Camp No Limits. It is a limb difference family camp that allows kids of all ages and their families attend a four-day camp that supports the whole family. Limb difference kids learn life skills, exercises to stay strong, and work on activities they may have never had the chance to learn before. They also get the chance to talk about what it’s like to be different and work with counselors and mentors.
This month is an awesome opportunity to prove how limb differences aren’t scary. A limb difference does not make anyone a monster (unless they choose to be one!) There’s a special lesson kids learn in the limb difference world when they spend time together at Camp No Limits. Campers learn that being different teaches you how everyone is different.
Born Just Right has raised more than $10,000 in the last few years and we want to keep it going. I am asking you to donate and also to have a chance to win great prizes!
All it takes is donating $5 to the Camp No Limits Fundraising site: http://bit.ly/cnl2015 for a raffle entry. Donors get an additional raffle entry for every additional $5 donated. If you donate more than $25, just add it up and enter the raffle again at another pay level. (For example, if you give $50, you can put their name in under the $25 level twice.)
