Help the Baptist Foundation Send Kids to Camp Good Grief

Giving Tuesday (Nov. 27) will be here soon, offering everyone an opportunity to put down their shopping lists and give to a charitable organization. If you choose to donate to the Baptist Memorial Health Care Foundation on Giving Tuesday, you could help send a child to Camp Good Grief.

Camp Good Grief is a bereavement camp where children and teenagers who have lost loved ones can come together for companionship, play and therapy. It costs approximately $1,500 to send one child to Camp Good Grief. During last year’s Giving Tuesday, the Baptist Foundation raised $3,000 for its Camp Good Grief fund. This year’s goal is more than twice that – $7,500 – and it will help send five children to camp. Every dollar you give will be used for that purpose.

Here are 4 easy things you can do to help send a child to Camp Good Grief on Giving Tuesday:

  1. Donate! Suggested amount is $20.18 or whatever you can give, and all Giving Tuesday donations are collected online. . To donate, click here.
