Hi Everyone,

A few weeks ago I wrote about something that makes me smile – hearing the stories of kids living with a serious illness or disability and how they overcome challenges to pursue their dreams. I received huge support from all of you - on Twitter, Facebook, in the Rockstar Room and in support of the Avril Lavigne Foundation Auction. It’s been incredible. One of my dreams for my Foundation is to work with my fans so I’m excited to see lots of you getting involved in different ways.

I will keep sharing pictures and stories of the people you help when you support the Avril Lavigne Foundation. I recently received a box full of notes and a group photo from all of the campers and staff from Easter Seals Camp Oakes. Their words of encouragement made me feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to meet this amazing group of people. We are currently working with Easter Seals to figure out how to do more to support this program, but in the meantime I thought I’d share this awesome photo of the whole camp with you all (see below.)

Thank you all for reading, sharing, and helping to achieve our mission to provide Respect, Opportunity, Choices, Knowledge & Strength to children & youth living with serious illnesses or disabilities.
