Think how wonderful it will feel to give your children the benefits of spending more time outdoors, providing them with those fun, childhood memories that will last a lifetime, all while supporting the National Wildlife Federation. NWF uses 80 cents of every dollar you raise in their annual Great American Backyard Campout® to support the programs that address the problems of America's indoor childhood and the health risks associated with them. The funds you raise are used to establish and maintain programs to make outdoor time a priority to protect our children's health.
join the next campout event, being held on June 25, 2011 in your backyard, parks, campgrounds or even your balcony! No site is too big or too small to spend a night sleeping under the stars.
This year you will be allowed to form "Campout Teams" and raise money that goes right back to helping connect even more kids to the outdoors through NWF's programs, such as Wildlife Watch and Trees for the 21st Century.
When you go online and register your campsite, you'll be able to choose whether or not you want to set a fund-raising goal. You'll get your own personalized page to customize with stories from your own camping experiences or even a special photo. Plus, you can keep track of how much money you raise and also send personalized email invites to your friends, family members, co-workers, and neighbors.
