(December 12, 2006) – Actionopolis LLC announced today the launch of a drive to spread holiday cheer and promote reading. The “Paul Newman, Actionopolis and You” campaign urges publishers to donate new, kid-friendly reading material to Paul Newman’s Double H Ranch.
This camp is in the process of building their library and needs your donations.
The Double H Ranch in Lake Luzerne, New York is one of Paul Newman’s Hole in the Wall Camps. It provides camping and year round services for children and families dealing with life-threatening illnesses. The goal of the camp is to enrich their lives and provide experiences that are memorable, empowering, fun, physically safe and medically sound while offered in a magical Adirondack setting.
The Ranch also provides the venue for weekends sponsored by a number of family based support programs. These weekends serve families coping with HIV/AIDS, breast cancer, the loss of a child, Von Willebrand’s Disease and more.
“This is really a small thing that publishers can do to make a big difference in a child’s or family’s life,” said Actionopolis founder Shannon Eric Denton. “The holiday season is traditionally thought of as a charitable time of year, but we expect this to be the first of many such donations we’ll be making throughout the year.”
