A MESSAGE FROM ZORBA ~
Sending a kid to camp:
This is my all time favorite Holiday gift. The way I did it was simple. I called up the camp that my children went to. Actually they went to two camps in Wisconsin. I then asked them how we might sponsor a child to camp.
We didn’t want to pick the child (of course) but we were curious as to how the children were picked for scholarships. Once we learned we honed it down a bit. Since my wife and I are very involved with Tibetan refuges we asked that our scholarship go to a Tibetan child (if possible). It was an easy accommodation and now ten years later we send several Tibetan children to camp every summer as part of our holiday cheer.
We give cards to our kids and each other and on that card we put the gift, “ A child has been sent to summer camp in your name. Happy Holidays.” It’s the one gift that brings tears to all of our eyes.
