Hello!!! Thank you for supporting our team in raising $5000 to send inner-city kids to a 3-day camp experience. My name is Omar Castaneda, I'll like to share with you why this is important to me and why I've asked you to donate to our team bike. Since 2015 I've had the pleasure of working as a youth counselor for the Harold Robinson Foundation, at the time I didn't know what to expect working with over a dozen kids. I can say the experience has been a life-changing one for me due to the importance of the positive impact that camp has on these children, along with the lasting impact it's having on their community. I believe if we get one child to go camping that's one life we are inspiring and possibly even saving. Please be part of the team and donate, make a difference. 




Together we hope to raise $1 million to send under-served kids to camp!


It is the vision of the Harold Robinson Foundation to provide a level playing field for our marginalized community's kids, schools and families. We utilize camp programs as a vehicle for empowerment and change. At Camp Ubuntu, children get the opportunity to experience nature, play, sports, use team-work, learn goal-setting, eat nutritious food and receive mentorship from exceptional counselors and volunteers. These programs are designed to strengthen confidence and independence, build character and develop leadership skills.

In addition to our Camp Ubuntu sleep away camps, the Harold Robinson Foundation brings Camp Ubuntu Watts a summer day camp to Markham Middle School. It also provides parenting workshops and other programs that help positively build community.

In support of this foundation, I am participating in the Pedal on the Pier fundraiser. My team will collectively ride (in place) on a stationary bike for 5 hours on the Santa Monica Pier on Sunday, June 2, 2019. We would be most grateful if you could support our efforts with a tax-deductible donation of ANY size.

Thank you for supporting our effort in trying to make a difference in a child's life.
