“I just wanted to send Easter Seals an email saying Thank-you so much for sending me to Camp Merrywood for another year. I don’t know how to explain it but without camp I’d be lost. Camp means the world to me and its a huge part of my life. Without Easter Seals and all the lovely donations it would be harder to go to camp. Thank-you so much for everything you do. It is greatly appreciated. I am hoping to go back next summer for more fun.”
