Many of the kids are REALLY excited about going to camp again this year or for the very first time.  But camp costs are expensive and not always in the budget for our families (especially if they have more than one camper). 

So this year we thought we'd do something a little different to help the kids out with those costs.  The kids will be doing a fund-raiser selling flowers through Flower Power Fundraising. 

This organization gives 50% back to the fund-raising organization.  As each kid makes sales, the profits will go first toward their $75 registration fee, and anything over that will be applied toward their full camp fee ($190).  If a kid doesn't earn at $75 in profits, whatever they do earn will be applied to their $75 registration fee and the family will need to pay the difference in order for their child to get registered for camp. 

And. . . if a kid has some flower sales but is not planning to go to camp this  year, they might like to donate their profits to a camper friend.  Wouldn't that show the love of Jesus??!!

We think it's a win-win for everyone.  The kids' sales will offset their camp costs and their buyers will help them get to camp AND get some lovely flowers too!

There will be 2 ways to purchase flowers: 
1.  Using the online link below:  


A.  The online page will be especially useful for friends and family living out of town.  You can e-mail them the link and they can browse the online catalog at their leisure.  Orders via the online page will be sent directly to the purchaser for a flat $5 shipping fee per address no matter the quantity of the order. 

B.  Or you can also browse the catalog, figure out what you want and place your order with one of the kids.  Orders can be picked up at the church or delivered to you by the kids, and there will be no shipping fee added to your order. 

2.  Or just place your order directly from the kids who will have full-color catalogs and order forms.  Again, those orders will be available for pickup at the church or delivered to your home by the kids, and there will be no shipping fee added to your order. 

FINAL UPDATE:  The kids sold enough flowers for us to have over $600 added to the camp scholarship, which Jacob will apportion out to our campers.  We had a record number of campers this year:  55!   It was a great time for this good-sized group from LCN.
