Dear Friends and Family, 
After 5 years of fundraising for Camp4ever, you're all familiar with this cause that is very personal for us.  We had planned on taking a break from Raise4ever this summer. However, after spending three Shabbosim with Camp4ever this summer, it reinforced for us how crucial this program is, and we feel that we have no choice but to start raising again. Additionally, many of Camp4ever's regular donors are unable to give this year due to the impact of Covid-19 and the need for funding is more critical than ever. 
Camp4ever! is an extraordinary overnight camp for children with a seriously ill parent or who have suffered the loss of a parent. A summer in Camp4ever! restores their spirits and renews their strength to persevere! We are currently in the middle of the boys' session where there are a number of children who unfortunately lost a parent as recently as a month ago. There are 2 boys who came to camp exactly one week after getting up from shiva! Many children in camp were quarantined for months with a sick parent, witnessing their pain every day. It is unbelievable to see how these kids are having the time of their lives and learning how to be a kid again. 
We just returned from spending Shabbos with the boys camp and it was an unbelievable experience. Several courageous campers voluntarily spoke for the entire camp on Shabbos and shared their heartbreaking stories about life with a critically ill parent/experiencing the loss of a parent. Hearing these boys, some as young as eight years old, some as old as eighteen, cry as they described the overwhelming feelings they had upon walking into Camp4ever and the difference it has made in their lives was indescribable. The way the kids support each other is extremely powerful, no one understands these kids like their Camp4ever! friends. One 12 year old boy who was very emotional during some of the speeches decided that he wanted to speak. He stood up and said "hearing other boys tell their stories makes me relive everything I went through, but my friend Abie just said something that really helped me - you're reliving it but this time there are people in it with you, we all understand and support each other". These 12 year old boys unfortunately had to grow up fast and are mature beyond their years, and they know that they can rely on their Camp4ever! friends and staff to continue to support them through whatever challenges the coming year may bring. 
Working at Chai4ever is a privilege which allows us to see first-hand how transformative the Camp4ever! experience can be for a child. Their time in Camp4ever! gives them much needed strength and hope which keeps them going throughout the year. Camp4ever! is a truly invaluable experience for  these children that they wait for all year long and hold on to until the following summer! You can have a part in this life-changing organization by clicking this link http://www.raise4ever.org/avrumiadinamatyas to go to our personal fundraising page and donate, or make out a check to Chai4ever and mail it to us at 35 Shenandoah Drive, Lakewood, NJ 08701.

All donations are 100% tax-deductible.

 

Thank you for supporting us and by doing so, helping children and their families cope with the diagnosis, treatment and aftermath of serious parental illness.
