the muddy puddles project

“No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted.” —Aesop

In hopes of talking less and doing more when it comes to helping others, I’ve decided to start a series I’m calling Good Samaritan Saturday. Each Saturday morning, I’ll post a little something you can do to start your weekend out with positive vibes by helping to lift someone else up…

On Saturday, August 8, 2015 the Ty Louis Campbell Foundation is holding their third annual Muddy Puddles “Mess Fest” at Camp Kiwi Day Camp in Mahopac, NY from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm.

A fundraising platform for the Ty Louis Campbell Foundation in support of pediatric cancer research, The Muddy Puddles Project hosts this annual event to honor “SuperTy” Campbell, a little boy from Pawling, NY who lost his battle with brain cancer in 2012. Ty dreamed of the day he would be “all bedda” and able to jump in muddy puddles. This outdoor event, featuring food, music, games—and lots of mud—is a celebration of kids being kids. Last year, they raised $60,000 for cancer research.

Your family can look forward to mud jumping, food fights, pie tosses, treasure hunts, water balloon tosses, zip lines, climbing walls, splash paint and lots of other kid-centered activities. Afterwards, kids will be rinsed off with a hose from a fire truck!

You can also help the cause by shopping at the PRET*TY shop. 100% of the proceeds go to the Ty Louis Campbell Foundation.
