CWRU’s Camp Kesem chapter to raise awareness on “#GivingTuesday”

compiled from staff reports

While Case Western Reserve University’s Chapter of Camp Kesem is not one of the organizations participating in the Office of Annual Giving “#GivingTuesday” initiative, the student group that works to put on a summer camp for students who have or have had a parent affected by cancer will not be sitting out on Dec. 3.

That day,the group will be setting up a free photo booth on campus. They’re asking students to tweet photos taken in it at their organization to raise awareness about their mission. They will be joined by other Camp Kesem chapters across the country, and hope to get “#bigkidsgive” trending on Twitter.

This summer will mark the first time that CWRU will host the free weeklong camp. At the national level, Camp Kesem is held on over 54 campuses. CWRU’s chapter was awarded $10,000 in funding by The Livestrong Foundation last summer to put on the camp.
