Shop and Give Back

Every child that experiences the life-changing impact of a SeriousFun camp is able to do so because of the caring and generosity of others. Whether it’s being away from home for the first time, making new friends, trying something they never thought they could do, it is only possible because of the community that supports SeriousFun, its campers, families, staff and volunteers all year round.


But that support doesn’t happen in just one way, and giving seriously doesn’t have to mean serious work for you. Here are a few ways to tweak your every day shopping activities and create a stream of donations without even breaking a sweat.


Amazon Smile

You shop. Amazon gives. With so many people buying their everyday essentials online, Amazon makes it easy to support camp. If you haven't already done so, simply hop on over to and add SeriousFun Children's Network as your charity of choice. Then start shopping! Amazon has updated their system, so once you register you can shop from or and 0.5% of your purchases will automatically be given to SeriousFun. 

If that amount seems small, remember that every cent adds up when it gives children with serious illnesses the chance to simply be kids. We promise!

If you shop using the app on your iPhone or Android device, you can go to the app and find "Settings" in the main menu. Tap on "AmazonSmile" and follow the on-screen instructions to turn on AmazonSmile in the app.


American Express Points

Looking to give, but want to do it in a way that makes all those credit card points that you mindlessly accumulate count? If you're an AmEx cardholder, you're in luck! American Express Members Give allows you to convert your points into charitable donations. You can easily donate points (or make a contribution and earn points!) through


It Seriously Adds Up
What may seem to you to be small transactions really do add up throughout the course of a year and contribute in a meaningful way to children living with serious illnesses and their families who are able to experience our life-changing camps and programs free of charge.
