Your vote can help bring summer camp to kids with cancer!

There are few moments as carefree as the idea of summer camp. Time seems to stand still and you are able to truly enjoy the moment and live in the now. Northwestern Mutual, an amazing supporter of Beads of Courage, is working with camps and partners nationwide to help bring that sense of relief to kids and families facing a childhood cancer diagnosis.
This past January, Northwestern Mutual celebrated the joy of summer camp for kids with cancer with their Rose Bowl Parade float: Letting Kids Be Kids. On July 6, 2018, they further celebrated camp by partnering with the Rose Bowl Legacy Foundation to host the ultimate campout at the Rose Bowl Stadium. Many kids with cancer were able to enjoy the inaugural event.
However, not all kids with cancer can attend camp. That is why Northwest Mutual wants to bring camp into children’s hospitals. As part of their overall effort to bring the joy of camp to as many children and families as possible, they are having an online voting contest where people will vote for which other iconic venue they would want to have an ultimate camp out.
While Northwest Mutual does not necessarily plan to host another camp out at one of these venues, they thought it would be a fun way to raise awareness of the importance of camp generally. For every 25,000 votes recieved, regardless of venue, Northwestern Mutual will give a $5,000 grant and a “camp-in-a-box” to a pediatric cancer unit of a children’s hospital in one of those communities. The camp-in-a-box will contain camp items such as a tent, VR viewers, marshmallows, etc…
Every vote received (for any venue) increases the number of hospitals that will receive a camp-in-a-box. The goal is to fund a camp-in-a-box at a hospital in each community where these venues are located and possibly a few others! 
Please click here to vote now between 7/6/18 and 7/20/18. You can vote once per day per device!

Thank you!
