This is the start of something good. A fundraising launch for Kids In Nature. Will you join me in donating $20 to help us raise $200,000?

What’s $20 Bucks? A half-tank of gas. A pizza. Two movie tickets. A folded-up bill lost in a pair of jeans stuffed in your closet. $20 doesn’t seem like much these days. However, $20 can get a kid outside to LEARN, PLAY, and EXPLORE in nature. $20 could provide a rod & reel and an opportunity for a kid to catch their first fish, or put a life-jacket on a kid that has never stepped foot on a boat. Your $20, combined with mine and 9,998 others, will allow us to break ground at the Kids In Nature Camp on Goose Creek Island.

We are on a mission to mobilize 10,000 donors to GET KIDS OUTSIDE! 10,000 donors may seem like a lot of people, and it is. However, there are 10 MILLION people in North Carolina. 10,000 is less than 1% of the population of our state. Will you join me as part of the 1% making a difference in the lives of children?

This is a fundraiser. I’d like to ask you to do two things:

  1. DONATE $20 Today, because really – #What’s$20Bucks?
  2. SHARE this message with 10 of your KIN to help us reach 10,000 donors and $200,000!

Kids are spending less than four hours outside each week and averaging more than seven hours of screen time each day. “Chickens and inmates are guaranteed more outside time than children in the United States.” Really? And for the record, I do believe that chickens and inmates deserve outdoor time – and so do our kids.
