I love this idea! I see some similarities between this camp idea and Camp Kesem (providing a week of camp to under-served children who have a parent with cancer, http://campkesem.org/about-kesem). Having gone to an undergraduate university that supported a Camp Kesem, I know that undergraduate students were very passionate about both fundraising for the camp at the university and also volunteering there over the summer. I believe that Camp Shriver has the opportunity to grow at the rate that Camp Kesem has (see: http://campkesem.org/about-kesem/our-history for growth) if organizers can successfully mobilize these passionate undergraduate students. Additionally, given that the camp is serving disabled children, I believe that there would be great interest from those pursuing a profession in teaching or medicine.

Hi Nesibo, I like this idea, and feel as though it could be expanded upon in an attempt to create a larger customer base. Crystals might not appeal to a broad population, but creating upscale and interchangeable handles would take a cane from being solely an aid and instead making it into a statement piece. For example, gold and/or etched handles could be another custom piece to add to your collection.
