Giving Tuesday and End of Year Giving 2023
"A Hero's Journey"
What is Giving Tuesday?
In a month already bursting (just like us after Thanksgiving dinner), there's one more date we'd love you to keep in mind: Giving Tuesday on November 28th. It's a day that highlights and celebrates all the charitable and philanthropic organizations working to make the world a better place. It is in this spirit that our nonprofit joins the Giving Tuesday initiative as part of our fundraising plans.
How Can I Help?
Last year, thanks to matching donations, we ended up raising over $10,000. We want to match that this year. We will once again be hosting this as a Facebook Fundraiser to help centralize as many donations as possible but there are other ways to give. Here's what you can do:
Become a matching donor - reach out to let us know how much you would like to match. Last year, matching donors helped raise an extra $2,000!
Donate directly to our Facebook Fundraiser the week leading to Nov 28th
Ask at your place of employment if they do matching for Giving Tuesday
Some businesses match up to 3x the amount on Giving Tuesday!
Share our donation page here and our fundraiser on Facebook once it is live
We hope you will be a part of our story by celebrating Giving Tuesday. There are so many places to give but we hope that you choose to give to our camp, our heroes, and our mission.

Halloween Fundraiser 2023
Costumes? Campfire stories? Creatures come to life? Kids love it? Check, check, check, and check!
Story School Camps and Halloween go together like costumes and candy. And right as Halloween ends it's not just candy that goes on sale. November 1st is the best day of the year to buy costumes, props, and all the equipment we use to help our heroes get lost in a story.
Join us this October to "scare up" some funds to make our 2024 eduLARP camps as spooktacular as possible.
(that's a lot of spooky props!)
March Causeplay Challenge
Wear a costume every day you can from March 15th - April 1st. Wear the same one or switch it up each day. Post your photos tagging our accounts and using the hashtag #agoodcauseplay
Raise awareness of our programs by having friends and others you meet ask why you are in costume. We'll have handouts and talking points for anyone taking on the challenge to give out.
Wear your costume and when asked about it tell them all about our wonderful camp programs and how they need more heroes, counselors, and scholarships. Are you up to the challenge?!
Social Accounts to tag us in:
We need your help to bring even more heroes to camp. Our scholarship funds are running low for the 2023 season and we still have more requests and more needs to bring the story to life for as many campers as possible.
Start a Facebook fundraiser or share/contribute to our donations directly below. Every little bit counts; Help keep the stories going!
We can simply continue learning, having fun, and growing. That we won’t be fighting over minor differences. That everyone who needs help will be not only accepted but assisted.
