Charity Begins at Home

Speaking of charity, if you are attending the Annual Meeting - are you planning on going to Party with a Purpose (PWAP)? You can buy individual tickets and all the funds raised go to three different organizations: PCMA Education Foundation, PCMA Network for the Needy committee and a local Seattle charity.

This year the charity we selected is The Moyer Foundation's Camp Erin. Camp Erin is a grief camp designed for children ages 6-17 who have experienced the death of a parent, friend or loved one. It is a weekend-long experience filled with traditional, fun, camp activities combined with grief education and emotional support -- facilitated by grief professionals and trained volunteers. The Moyer Foundation partners with local hospice and grief counseling organizations in the communities where the camps exist. Because these organizations are seeing and treating grieving children everyday, they act as the natural registration points for Camp Erins in those communities. Support from The Moyer Foundation and local communities ensures that Camp Erin is free to all campers.

Be sure to view the video to see for yourself the good work that they are doing.

We hope to see you in Seattle having a good time at PWAP - tickets are $95 - send me a note if you have any questions! http://www.pcma2008.org/content/party-with-a-purpose/39
