My very good friend, Eleanor Anne, works for an awesome non profit called Camp Happy Days. I am happy to help her spread the word about voting for them in Charleston Magazine’s 2012 Giving Back Awards for Non Profit of the Year. Here is some info on what we can do to help from Eleanor Anne:
Camp Happy Days is a non-profit organization that offers support to South Carolina’s children with cancer and their families by providing year-round programs, special events, emotional support and access to financial resources. Our goal is to give hope, self-esteem and the will to fight one more round to children with cancer.
At Camp Happy Days, we believe that every child battling cancer in South Carolina should have an opportunity to benefit from a summer camp experience and other life-changing programs regardless of family income or economic status. Every program we offer is free to the families we serve.
What cancer takes away, Camp Happy Days gives back – lots of smiles, laughter and the pure carefree joy of being a kid. It is our goal to create powerful, life-changing experiences that helps children fighting cancer live their dreams, realize their potential, to overcome adversity and discover a renewed sense of pride and self-confidence.
Camp Happy Days has been nominated for the 2012 Giving Back Awards for the Non-Profit of the Year Award, presented by Charleston Magazine. Please visit http://www.charlestonmag.com/givingback/votenow and select Camp Happy Days as your non-profit! Click here.
How it works:
Eighty-eight nonprofit organizations in Charleston, Berkeley, Beaufort, Colleton, and Dorchester counties were nominated and it’s time to vote!
The first voting round runs from Monday, July 16-Friday, July 20, 2012, after which the top 50 nonprofits will advance to the next voting round. Individuals may vote one time per day for his or her favorite organization.
The second voting round runs from Monday, July 23-Friday, July 27, 2012, after which the top 25 nonprofits will move on to the semifinals.
The semifinal voting round runs from Monday, July 30-Friday, August 3, 2012, after which the top five finalists will be announced.
Each of the five finalists will be profiled in the November 2012 issue of Charleston magazine and presented at the Giving Back Awards show in November, when a live text vote will determine the winner of this category.
Camp Happy Days was one of the five finalists and we would love to be featured in Charleston Magazine again…and even win!
So vote now, vote often, and help spread the word, encouraging everyone to vote for Camp Happy Days and help kids kickin’ cancer!
