UF to Celebrate 2018 Camp Fire Absolutely Incredible Kid Day
Every child is amazing. That’s why Camp Fire honors them each year by hosting a special letter-writing event that conveys to them that important message. The University of Findlay again will be participating in Camp Fire’s Absolutely Incredible Kid Day on Wednesday, March 14.
Tables will be set up from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Alumni Memorial Union’s Fireside Lounge. The public is welcome to join students, faculty and staff in writing letters of encouragement and inspiration to children. Stationary, stickers, markers, envelopes, sample letters and other supplies will be available to compose letters of love and encouragement.
If you don’t have any special kids in your life, that’s okay! The University will provide a list of children’s names from the community who would love to receive a letter of inspiration from you.
Camp Fire is a nonprofit organization that hosts programs for children and teens that promote education, build confidence and provide hands-on leadership experience.
Corporations and other philanthropic partners help celebrate Absolutely Incredible Kid Day around the country. As well as writing letters, adults and teens are asked to post, tweet, hashtag (#AIKD) and Instagram notes to show the kids in their lives how much they are appreciated.
Camp Fire’s Northwest Ohio chapter has named its 2018 Absolutely Incredible Kid Day campaign after the late Jeri Bjorling of Findlay, who, at the time of her passing, had written a letter to her son every year the program existed
The University of Findlay has been hosting Absolutely Incredible Kid Day letter-writing sessions for more than 15 years. The event is presented by UF’s Student Activities Board, an extension of the Office of Student Activities, Commuter Services and Leadership Development. Student Activities Board is a student board that strives to bring high quality, diverse edutainment to campus. For more information, please call 419-434-4606.
