    There is is limited amount of funds available to fund camping expenses once we get application for participants who qualify.


    So, we have the fund set up, we have the guidelines for qualification completed and are accepting applications where;


    PopUpPortal members can promote those w Special Needs with their camping expenses.


    Another extension of helping campers and PopUpPortal.com has already set up a thread specifically for this.


    Does anyone know of any other camping portal that extends themselves in this direction??

    How about a fund for terminally ill people? Seems their needs are pretty special as well.

    In order for this to be successful we must stay focused on the specific goals set up.

    Additionally, this fund has been set up under the charter of;

    http://www.sandiegodownsyndrome.org/popup-portal

    and we must adhere to their guidelines set out by the IRS, as a 501(c)(3) Not For Profit organization.

    PopUpPortal non-profit fund for campers with Special Need Shutting Down.

    Unfortunately, there was not enough activity that we have decided not to continue beyond this year. We do have a small amount of funds to distribute for the original purpose and this needs to be completed by year end.

    Wanted to THANK those of you who felt this is a worthy cause and contributed. The funds will go to a few qualified campers.

    Thank you again and you can feel good about helping a few other fellow campers.

    I wanted to Thank everyone who contributed to this cause and the remaining funds went to San Diego Down Syndrome Organization.


    Your contributions have gone to two very worthy causes.


    Here is a video of one of their latest acts of kindness:
