So, what are YOU doing tonight? I'll tell you what I'M doing; I'm camping out in my backyard as part of the National Wildlife Federation's: Great American Backyard Campout.
Every year, the National Wildlife Federation sponsors one night where thousands of people around America gather together in backyards, parks, campgrounds, community centers, ANYWHERE, for a great cause; connecting the youth of America with the outdoors and raising money for a great cause.
National Wildlife Federation uses 80 cents of every dollar you raise for the Great American Backyard Campout to support programs that address the problem of America's indoor childhood and the health risks associated with these. Your funds are used to establish and maintain programs to make outdoor time a priority to protect children’s health and ensure their readiness to learn.Anyone that's been around me for any length of time knows how much I love to camp. Being outdoors, hearing the crickets at night, smelling the campfire, tasting the smores, listening to my friends singing and sharing stories...that's about as close to heaven as I can get. Now, I get to do it in support of a great organization.
