All is well!

Ultimate Peace Camp 2014 is flying along in a torrent of absolute awesomeness. There have been challenges, and many hours of work, but the kids are having a blast and so are the coaches. I am hoping to have a detailed blog post up in the next few days. Until then, you can check out tons of what’s been going on in these places: UP BlogFacebook, Twitter, YouTube.

You can also check out my FB photo stream right here.

In about 10 minutes I’ll be driving down to camp from the West Bank. I have been here for the past two days meeting new Ultimate Peace friends and further absorbing the region. There really isn’t any place like the Old City of Jerusalem!

Camp starts getting into full swing tomorrow with the arrival of all of the coaches. Tomorrow is also the fundraising deadline. If you’d like the make a donation towards my work, today is your last chance! Thank you so much for all of your support. You can make a donation online right here.

Photos of my first couple days can be viewed right here.

Fundraising Update #2

Camp starts in one week and I couldn’t be more excited! The coaching teams have been set, the coaching manual is about to sent out, and this Monday night I fly out! I will be spending the few days before coaches training begins in Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and hopefully up in Nazareth.

The big dance begins on the morning of 6/20 with coaches training! Three days after that… the kids arrive!

Than you, thank you, thank you for all your support! The fundraising deadline is 6/20, so if you’ve been thinking of making a donation, now’s the time. I couldn’t be more sincere when I say that every dollar counts!

You can make a donation online right here. You can learn more about what I have been working on right here.

Thanks again for all your amazing support!

Fundraising Update #1

Screen Shot 2014-04-25 at 10.57.51 PMThank you so much to everyone that has donated to my 2014 Ultimate Peace campaign. Ultimate Peace has truly changed my life and without your support my work with the organization would not be possible.

The fundraising deadline is the start of camp — June 20th — and it’s coming up quick! Over the past several months I have been hard at work with the coaching committee writing a new coaching manual and designing the coaches training sessions. It’s incredible how time has flown by! We are all so excited for camp to start in two short weeks!
