Lately I’ve been talking to you a bit about a few of the many charities in an around Toronto. But one that should defiantly be on everyone’s radar is Camp Oochigeas (Ooch). This organization is run by a team of very dedicated volunteers who help provide kids with and affected by childhood cancer the chance for their very own adventure at the camp’s year-round residential site in Muskoka, and in Toronto at The Hospital for Sick Children, three satellite centres and Ooch Downtown. They give children the chance for a magical camping experience to help over 1000 children and their families take part of their programming at no cost and are equipped with the best medical technology to help these kids continue their treatment to offer onsite chemotherapy IV treatment and blood transfusions. But to keep this amazing charity going, they rely on the generous help and donations of their volunteers and from people like you.
To help raise money for this great charity, Camp Oochigeas (Ooch) is partnering up with Great Blue resorts, a group of eight family-friendly Park Model Cottage™ resorts in Southern Ontario’s cottage country, to help fundraise for their #Colour4CampOoch campaign. For every #Colour4CampOoch sheet complete and uploaded to their website HERE between May 1st and August 31st 2015, Great Blue Resorts will donate $1 to Camp Oochigeas, up to $25,000. “Our mission is to help our owners create unforgettable cottage memories with their families, so helping Camp Ooch continue their amazing work of providing similar experiences for children who deserve them most is a perfect fit. We want to see 25,000 Ontario kids submit colouring sheets to help kids just like them who are affected by cancer,” said Chris Chew, Marketing Director for Great Blue Resorts. These colouring sheets are also available online for free PDF download online, at all Great Blue Resorts locations, at all Pickle Barrel locations and all Turtle Jack’s Muskoka Grill locations throughout Ontario. And as an extra bonus, each colouring sheet will be entered to win a week-long family getaway at a Great Blue Resort and dozens of other prizes.
