It feels good to give back. Just received this message today after giving $1000.00 to a good cause. I share this to help encourage others to give. Givers gain!

Dear Brett Maas,
Thank you for supporting one of our Team Hole in the Wall members! Your gift will help make this Team Hole in the Wall event a success and help a seriously ill child experience the magic of a Hole in the Wall Camp.
Because of your generosity, Hole in the Wall Camps are able to provide a camp experience to thousands of children who, because of the severity of their illness, are unable to attend a traditional camp. By coming to camp, these children share the simple pleasures usually associated with a healthy childhood – acceptance, safe play and the building of lasting friendships. They get to create more than a little mischief, eat lots of good kid food and sing songs under the stars while roasting marshmallows.
At each Hole in the Wall Camp, we are inspired with every new encounter we have with a camper. As we listen to their camp stories, the world takes on more color, is more hopeful, and more filled with love. Their joy, their appreciation for their time at camp, their indomitable courage and spirit make Hole in the Wall Camps very special and sacred. Thank you again for your generous support to help make this possible.
