The Periwinkle Foundation is an amazing charity that works with children (and their families) dealing with cancer and other other blood disorders.
Per the Periwinkle Foundation website:
"The Periwinkle Foundation develops and provides programs that positively change the lives of children, young adults and families who are challenged by cancer and other life threatening illnesses and are cared for at Texas Children's Hospital.
Each year more than 4,000 children are touched by Periwinkle programs
Even better, this week was Camp Periwinkle!
Camp Periwinkle is an amazing program that allows some pretty sick kids, to just be kids. They get to fish, swim, do archery, have dances, etc. It is amazing to watch these children laugh and play and do all of these things that they wouldn't otherwise have an opportunity to do.
Today camp is wrapping up and tomorrow the kiddos head home, but I know everyone at camp this year (both campers and counselors alike) are effected by what happens there. It truly is a special, one-of-a-kind place.
