Hello friends and Happy New Year! Just wanted to thank you for your support of Sam and our efforts to broaden his experiences, and to give you an update! We're still very motivated to get a camper that meets Sam's needs but are trying to do things in logical steps. We are getting our home of 17 years ready to sell so we can purchase a farm! Once we have the farm, we'll have space to park the camper. In the meantime, we'll keep fundraising toward our goal and doing our research. This month, we'll be attending a big RV show to see them in person and to narrow down our wish list. Stay tuned! <3

More Info

Meet Sam!  Sam is a 20 year-old with autism and epilepsy.  Sam loves to travel (with his caregivers) but his anxiety and medical issues prevent him from doing so.  A camper will provide Sam the security of having his own space where he can feel safe, a place for his service dog to travel with him, a place where he can rest when he has a seizure or doesn't feel well, and a place to cook his special meals and have his medications close by as he travels.  For most of his life, Sam has not been able to travel any further than a day trip from his home.  A camper would expand his world and allow him to learn more things and see more places.  The funds raised will be used to purchase a used motor home for the sole purpose of Sam's travels.
