I visited their two camps in NY on visiting day. Words can not describe the absolute goodness of who they, what they do and what they stand for. The staff is amazing, caring, warm, inviting, lively, responsible, professional, understanding, loving, giving, inspiring and motivational. Whats even more amazing is that all the staff are volunteers doing their job because their motivated with the charity's mission and not for pay. If your looking for a charity that your dollar will accomplish the most, then this is definitely it. it would be a great deed to spread the word about this wonderful organization, to volunteer there or give of your money and/ or time. It's a definite way to get on gods good side.
