Help Support Camp Kesem

From NSC Alum and Parent Jeff Dinkin:

As a former 10 Year Man at North Star Camp, I have learned the value of a  camping experience in the North Woods. Today I am  member of the Board of Directors of Camp Kesem, and I would like to ask your help to win $1 million to enable kids who are coping with their parent's cancer to attend special summer camps run by college kids for free! All you need to do is take one minute to vote by following the directions below and then passing this onto your kids, friends and business associates. Thank you so much for helping such a worthwhile cause!
