Thank you for taking the time to help share the word about our day of giving. The goal of our day of giving is to raise some money to help bring more kids to camp that couldn't typically afford it. Laura has been volunteering each week at a shelter for women and their families who are experiencing homelessness in Rochester. A big part of the day of giving is getting enough funds together to bring those kids to camp. HOW COOL WOULD THAT BE!?
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP
The goal of this page is to give you a framework to help spread the word. You can make a huge difference by helping us spread the word. Below are a bunch of templates that you can use on social media and emails. What we are hoping you will do is take these templates and personalize them to help spread the world among your network. People are going to be far more likely to give to things you care about because they care about you.
Secret internal goal
Any money raised here is a win, but we have a secret internal goal of raising $10,000. WHAT!? I never would have thought this was possible, but we already have $3,000 pledged as a matching gift. So, for the first $3,000 donated our board will match each dollar, doubling the impact. You can make this happen! Please take a look below and record a video, share our posts, send a few emails, and be super active on Facebook June 1st.

I am writing to let you know that Stomping Ground, a not for profit summer camp that I have been a part of and support is holding a day of giving. Today Stomping Ground is holding an online campaign to raise money to bring more kids to camp this summer.
Stomping Ground is a summer camp based on empowering campers through self-direction, radical empathy, every summer they gather with hundreds of campers to reimagine a world where more is possible.
I have personally seen the impact that an empathetic community can have on a kids life. In just a week kids leave this camp feeling more confident, capable and connected to others.
One of the things I am most excited about with this day of giving is bringing some kids to camp this summer that have been experiencing homelessness. Laura, one of the founders and directors, volunteers each week with these kids and this summer we are hoping to bring them to Stomping Ground. Your gift will go directly to bring them and other kids that wouldn't normally be able to afford camp to camp.
Even just a few dollars will go a long way to bringing more kids to an even better camp. Thank you!

DAMN WE LOVE YOU!
Thank you so much for helping make this dream come true. 3 years ago when we started Stomping Ground we could not have imagined how much love, support, and excitement we have gotten from you, campers, and so many more people. Running Stomping Ground is a dream come true for us. We have never had to turn any campers away for financial reasons. Being able to do it in a way where we can continue to stay true to our belief that all kids deserve a camp experience regardless of family income or ability to pay is a proof that there is so much good in the world. Thank you for all your love, support, and impact. I don't think you know how important you are and how much we value everything you do. Stomping Ground would not be Stomping Ground without you. THANK YOU!
