Lisa Streett-Liebetrau has, in the short span of 2 years, taken Camp Koala from nothing but a dream, to a childrens' grief camp with a donated street-level-window office space, a fantastic gala, and plans for family grief camps, family counseling, and so much more.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen the growth, the dedication, and the explosion of sponsors and services in just two years' time.

What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?

They needed a computer, and I know how important it is for the organization to function.
