CAP Kid Annual Appeal
Changing the emphasis from growing hair to growing confidence.
After adjusting and pivoting again in 2021, and with the help
of many generous supporters in 2022, CAP did our best to return to business
(and fun) as usual. Gas and food prices as well as camp and travel
expenses climbed, but the mission of CAP to help all children with alopecia,
particularly to keep CAP Kids free at all camps and events, remained and will
always remain the same.
Once again, the NuGo CAP Van and I spent a lot of time together. In fact, in the two years since I purchased the van, I have traveled over 97,000 miles, and each of those miles has been spent successfully delivering CAP's message to schools, to camps, to CAP events and to CAP Kids and their families in their homes. I’ve donated hundreds of books valued at over $5000 to CAP Kids and their school libraries.
I consider myself blessed to be able to continue CAP’s mission of helping children with alopecia by building self-esteem, providing support and raising awareness. Recently, I attended a parade at a school where I had spoken virtually. Imagine my delight when students approached me saying, “It’s Okay to be Different,” “Everyone is Different,” and “Being Different is Normal,” the same words that I speak at every one of my school visits. I am the lucky one who gets to experience these milestone moments and to know that CAP is making a difference, but changing lives is a group effort, and I could not do so without your help.
Your donations help me to continue to share the mission of CAP in the following ways:
Donate $200- Give library books about alopecia to schools where I speak.
Donate $300 - Send a child with alopecia to Alopeciapalooza.
Donate $500- Send 2 children with alopecia to CAP Kid Camp.
Sponsor $1200 - Send 4 children with alopecia to Alopeciapalooza. We will display your logo or listing on all registration pages.
If you prefer to spread your gift out over time, please consider giving a recurring monthly payment. For example, $21 a month for 12 months will send one kid to camp, or even $17 a month will help support our Library Program. All donations are appreciated, and if you are financially unable to donate, please consider going to our website or to our Facebook page and starting a fundraiser for CAP.
Thank you for your continued support, which allows CAP to continue its purpose of growing self-esteem in CAP kids, one child at a time. Together, we are making a difference!
