Dearest friends, family, and community members, 
Our fourth year of Camp Kesem at the University of Nebraska Lincoln is in full swing. We couldn't be more excited to continue to grow as a chapter as we prepare for this summer's camp. Our goal is to fundraise $80,000 to put on our best camp yet for 95 campers. 
What is Camp Kesem? 
Camp Kesem is a nationwide community, driven by passionate college student leaders, that supports children through and beyond their parent's cancer. Camp Kesem provides a FREE week-long summer camp and two reunions throughout the academic school-year.  The camp experience provides a unique, stress free and compassionate environment where kids can just be kids. Camp Kesem's mission is not limited to helping these families, but to also empower passionate college students to make a difference and build invaluable leadership skills by developing, organizing, funding, facilitating, and managing every aspect of our Camp Kesem UNL Chapter.

Why Should You Donate To Camp Kesem?
Camp Kesem is completely free to all families, so we rely on generous donatations from people like yourself. When a parent gets cancer, everyone in the family is affected, especially the kids. They are forced to grow up and gain responsibilities, and miss out on many parts of their childhood. They miss out on the magic of being a kid. Camp Kesem gives a little of that magic back! Camp Kesem is unique from any other summer camp in that every camper there has one thing in common: a parent with cancer. Because of that common ground, campers are able to build immensely close bonds in a short amount of time, and those bonds last a lifetime. You would not only be giving a child a week of camp, but a lifetime support system. 
Big or small, all donations are tremendously appreciated. Please consider donating, and join us in making a difference in these kids' lives. Join us in bringing back the magic! 
Kesem Love,
Camp Kesem University of Nebraska Lincoln
