Hi Everyone,
It’s been so amazing with the new album coming out soon, I wanted to take a minute to give you an update on the Avril Lavigne Foundation. Last summer I had an awesome time visiting Easter Seals Camp Oakes in Big Bear, meeting with the campers, the volunteer staff and learning about their camp experiences.
One of the things I learned while I was there was that while everyone loved summer camp, some campers were not always able to attend or return to camp because of the cost. Since then, the Avril Lavigne Foundation has been working with Easter Seals to identify how we can help!
That’s why I am so proud today to announce the CAMP S.T.A.R.S. program, which stands for Summer Time Avril Rock Stars. Thanks to your support, we are going to help send 50 kids with disabilities to camp this summer who otherwise might not be able to afford it! Our CAMP S.T.A.R.S. will head to camp at 5 sites across the U.S. and Canada. You can learn more about this program here.
To celebrate this announcement, we’ve also created a special video for you from my visit to Camp Oakes last year- watch and share if you’re as excited as I am about the CAMP S.T.A.R.S. program!
Xo,
Avril
