Become a SAK letter writer!

Role modelsBecome a SAK letter writer and make a difference in the lives of disadvantaged Toronto kids.

When 600 kids returned from Moorelands Wilderness Camp last summer, though they looked the same, they came back as very different kids.

Moorelands’ SAK Letter Writing campaign is a peer to peer invitation to do good, when you pick a few friends to reach out to and share your passion for the work of Moorelands and the possibilities that Moorelands Wilderness Camp offers to kids living in poverty. It’s a powerful support of our kids because you are making the ‘ask’ and your network picks up on your belief in our work.

We make being a SAK letter writer as easy as possible for you.

  • We create the letter template.
  • We merge your contacts and print the letters and we’ll take care of mailing them out.
  • You provide us with your list of who to contact and perhaps agree to send along a personal thank you as we report back to you on who took you up on your invitation.

Matt, 11 yrs old and a camper first the first time last year told us, “When I’m home, this is how I will use the things I learned at camp… I will care for my people; encouraging others to be more active and I will be more positive.”

The SAK letter writing campaign is Moorelands single largest source of funds to get kids like Matt up to camp this year and the need is great. Last year we sent 200 kids to camp from the SAK campaign.

During their session at Camp, the kids experience big skies, campfires, songs, and new skills like swimming and canoeing. Matt and kids like him learned about setting and achieving new goals, making new friends and being a part of a community that cared and nurtured their development.  Living in some of Toronto’s poorest communities, they were able to leave their worries behind while at Camp, and enjoy all that Moorelands Camp has to offer.

Will you help kids like Matt and become a SAK letter writer for the kids this year?  If you are interested, please contact Helen Banham: hbanham@moorelands.ca or 416-466-9987 ext. 312.

Thank you!
