Just $2 Can Go a Long Way: How You Can Help Send Children To A Gluten-Free Summer Camp

Did you go to camp as a child?  I never had the opportunity, but can only imagine what fun that would be!  There is a very real problem, though.  How do you make sure that your gluten-free child can eat safely while away from home?  The summer of 2012 will be a great summer.  Why? Because from July 30 to August 3, 2012, the Celiac Disease Foundation will hold their first children’s celiac camp.  The camp will be specifically for 7-15 year old gluten intolerant and gluten-sensitive children – not just those diagnosed with celiac disease.   The camp will be held in San Bernadino, CA at Camp Fire USA Camp Nawakwa.  How can you help?  Read on.

There’s an age-old saying that, in my opinion, has never been more true…

“It’s better to give than to receive.”

And the holiday season is the perfect time for you to give back to the community.

Gluten-Free Saver has partnered with Van’s Natural Foods and now through December 25, 2011, Van’s Natural Foods will match each $2.00 donation with a $2.00 donation, up to $1000.00.  The goal is to raise $2000.00, so if you donate $2, it is like you are really donating $4.00.  Every little bit counts.

YES! I want to help send a child to a gluten-free summer camp and donate $2 right now!

** 100% of all donations will go directly to CDF.

*** If you’re feeling extra generous this holiday season, you are not limited to donating just $2 – you can give as much money as your heart desires!
