The Burned Children Recovery Foundation has helped several children to overcome the so called beauty of this world and to begin to find true beauty within. I was in a house fire when I was ten months old. I was sleeping in my crib, when a five year old lights a stuff animal. She left the room thinking she put the fire out with a blanket; however, the blanket held sparks. 43 percent of my body is burned, but the nonprofit organization helped me when I was a kid. This was the first year that I got a chance to come back as a counselor at the camp and it was amazing to see how the camp stills help the kids rise above. The camp and the phoenix house helps the kids realize how they are not alone and they have people around them that have faced the same things they have faced. The kids learn how to face the public in a respectable manner and not be insulted when the public face our scars in an unhealthy manner. I recommend this organization to everyone and anyone.
