Below are the organizations where the 2015 Stay Awake A Thon money will be donated to.
Happiness is Camping: Happiness Is Camping is a very special family of children who share an illness. Because this serious bonds exists, there is a deep understanding among the campers. No child will be stared at here because of a missing limb or lack of hair. All the campers have survived similar experiences and are eager to assist one another, to ease any visible discomfort with ready friendship and supportive smiles. Our staff of counselors and doctors, nurses and volunteers are a part of this special family, and the health and welfare of each child is paramount to them. You can be sure, however, that your child won't be treated as a sick kid - he or she will be treated like a kid. And that's what makes this camp so wonderful; it's just that - a camp for kids.
