HSF: Help Send a Child to Generation
Joshua's Summer iGovern Leadership Camp!
Dear Friends of Generation Joshua and the Home School Foundation,
We know that many families are hurting right now. Whether they are
suffering from the loss of a parent or because their primary
breadwinner is out of work, many families are struggling to pay their
bills, much less to afford summer camp. We are writing to ask you to
help send a child in need to Generation Joshua's iGovern Summer
Faith Meador, 15, (http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=6704 ) and her
younger brother, Luke, (http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=6705 )
inherited their passion for politics and the American founding from
their father. Thanks to Mr. Meador's encouragement, the siblings have
dreamed of pursuing a future in law and politics and are already
active advocates of justice as teen adjudicators in their state's peer
court system. Unfortunately, the father who instilled in them the
drive for civic action is unable to watch them realize their dreams.
Mr. Meador died of leukemia in March 2008, leaving his children to
carry on his legacy on their own.
Young people like Luke and Faith would benefit tremendously from a
week at Generation Joshua's iGovern Summer Leadership camps.
Thankfully, Faith and Luke are being given the opportunity to attend
iGovern through the generous contributions of members like you to
Generation Joshua's Homeschool Foundation scholarship fund. This fund
specifically ministers to orphans, children of widows and single
parents, and children in need.
Currently, far more children have submitted scholarship applications
than Generation Joshua is able to fund. Countless young people have
stories similar to the Meadors'. Not only do children of widows or
single parents rely on gracious support to attend camps, but the
recent economic malaise has made it even more difficult for other
families to send their motivated children to camp.
We cannot imagine anything more unfortunate than having to turn away a
motivated and gifted young person who has genuine financial need. As
camp season approaches in July and August, we are reiterating our
appreciation for the Generation Joshua and HSLDA member families who
have so graciously donated over the years and are asking you to
prayerfully consider donating to the Widows and Orphans Fund. Four
families each donating $100 would be enough to send one child to
iGovern leadership camps. Sixteen families giving only $25 would have
the same impact.
Thank you for your faithfulness in giving to widows and orphans (James
1:27). To make a secure, tax deductible donation of any amount, you
can visit the Generation Joshua website
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=6706 . You can also donate through
the Home School Foundation http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=6707 by
selecting the "Generation Joshua" fund from the drop-down menu. If you
would like to donate via check, please make the check payable to the
Home School Foundation and designate "Generation Joshua Camp
Scholarship Fund" in the memorandum line. Please mail checks to the
Home School Foundation, Attn: Generation Joshua Camp Scholarship Fund,
PO Box 3000, Purcellville, VA 20134-9000.
Thank you for your consideration. Your gift may change a child's life.
Very truly yours,
Home School Foundation
