Camp Kesem at The Ohio State University Announces Giving Tuesday

The Ohio State University

Camp Kesem at The Ohio State University, a nationwide community driven by passionate college student leaders that supports children through and beyond their parent’s cancer, is pleased to announce its plans for Giving Tuesday 2018. Giving Tuesday will be held on Tuesday, November 27th.

Giving Tuesday, a giving moment by the UN Foundation which follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday, kicks off the holiday giving season with a day dedicated to giving—harnessing the power of social media and the generosity of people to bring about real change in their communities.

This year, Camp Kesem at The Ohio State University will partner with Giving Tuesday by launching the #GiveKidsKesem hashtag campaign-drawing global attention via social media to Kesem’s mission and holding our own Giving Tuesday fest. Giving Tuesday fest is a power hour where the members of our organization will come together at the end of the night to raise the final funds for that day.


Camp Kesem is a nationwide community, driven by passionate college student leaders, that supports children through and beyond their parent’s cancer. Camp Kesem operates over 100 free summer camps in 42 states for children ages 6 to 18 who have been impacted by a parent’s cancer. This camp experience and Kesem’s year-long programs have a lasting impact on children by providing them a peer-support network that understands their unique needs, builds confidence and strengthens their communication skills. In 2018, Camp Kesem served nearly 9,000 children coast-to-coast, all funded by our generous donations from individuals and corporate support.

Camp Kesem at The Ohio State University was founded in 2011 and supports children in the Columbus community by providing two, one-week long summer camp experience and year-long peer support. Camp Kesem at The Ohio State University is operated by 120 student volunteers and serves approximately 168 campers ages 6 to 18 per year.

#GivingTuesday is a movement to celebrate and provide incentives to give. It will culminate with a global day of giving on November 27th, 2018. This effort harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners- charities, families, businesses, and individuals- to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. #GivingTuesday inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities; and to give back in better, smarter ways to charities and causes they celebrate to help create a better world. #GivingTuesday harnesses the power of social media to create a global movement that is dedicated to giving around the world.
