Safe Summer for Christel House Kids
industry, timeshare companies collectively send millions of people on
incredible vacations every year. They can recharge their batteries, spend
quality time with family and friends, and just relax and have fun.
for the kids who attend Christel House, “summer vacation” has a completely
different meaning. It means the possibility of not having enough to eat,
staying home alone and unsupervised while their parents work, and being exposed
to drugs and violence in unsafe neighborhoods. It’s a far cry from the holidays
that timeshare owners are accustomed to, but with the help of our industry
friends and supporters, Christel House students were provided a safe
alternative this year.
we all know the importance of this for the kids, it is not cheap. This summer,
with the help of the timeshare industry, $22,000 was raised for this year’s
program through e-mail and text donation campaigns. This generosity will truly
make a difference in the lives of many children!
House is a global charity that transforms the lives of impoverished children around
the world—breaking the cycle of poverty and building self-sufficient,
contributing members of society. This is accomplished through robust K-12
education and a strong character development program, complemented with regular
health care, nutritious meals, guidance counseling, career planning, family
assistance, and college/career support.
