Review for The Heart Connection, Des Moines, IA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Last year was my first year volunteering at Heart Connection camp. The experience was unbelievable: a whole week of sharing stories, meeting friends, and limitless fun. Camp truly gives children and families affected by cancer the opportunity to step outside the confines of illness for a while and just live.

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

children's excitement to come back to camp year after year and the gratitude of their families.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

limitlessly energetic and enthusiastic. Devoted. Many of the staff and volunteers were previous campers, excited to pass on the gift that they received from camp to others.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

spread smiles to so many more families affected by cancer

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Volunteer & Programs staff/ counselor at camp.
