Erica Blues family couldnt afford to send her to overnight summer camp. Then a friend paid for her to go the summer between sixth and seventh grades. The experience was transformational. It changed my perspective on life, she says. So much so that today, Blue is the CEO of Austin Sunshine Camps. The organization makes summer campand all the swimming, smores and new friends that go along with itpossible for kids from low-income families in central Texas as well as those in foster care. The camp is completely funded by donations and relies heavily on the generosity of others to help kids have the summer fun they deserve.
