Camp ASCCA, Alabama’s Special Camp for Children and Adults, became a part of my life after accepting a job there as Camp Secretary. I knew the moment that I arrived on my first day at work that Camp ASCCA would give me more than simply an income. Every day was a testimony of the human spirit, of overcoming obstacles, and the joy of being who you are. I saw firsthand what camp means to the campers and their families. When a family move took me away from the area, I took Camp ASCCA with me in my heart.
The Singer and the Song Project was born from a simple hope to bring together two groups of people who I love and who I knew would love each other: my Archie family and the campers and staff of Camp ASCCA. It is just an idea…and the person who has the idea is not the person important to the success of a project. The people who are vital to its success are the ones who are willing to take the idea and give of themselves to make it happen.
Thank you so much for having giving hearts. ♥ Please know that every donation, no matter how big or how small, has an impact on the lives of these campers. The music has started. What you are about to see and hear…will be beautiful.

All of the donations go through Camp ASCCA’s website to their PayPal account and go directly to camp, therefore, donations are tax deductible. All of the steps listed below are the normal steps to make any contribution through the camp’s website. The only addition is tagging the donation, but a lot of people tag donations anyway if making a donation in memory of someone or in honor of someone. It’s really fairly simple to see what to do once you’re on the website. Donors will receive an email confirmation/receipt of their donation.
I also have an email address for any questions regarding the project:
The camp link is http://www.campascca.org/
The recipient of the painting will be chosen at random from the donations tagged “In honor of the singer” and will get one chance to win for every $5 donated. The painting is a 16 x 20 oil on canvas.
The instructions are also in the YouTube info for the video too, so I’m hoping that helps.
