Next in our series of posts about Charitocracy nominees, we have Sky's the Limit Fund nominated by donor
obxlisa. This charity provided a grant that helped her son attend SUWS of the Carolinas, a wilderness-based treatment center for children, adolescents, and teens struggling with autism. So let's welcome Sky's the Limit to our charity of the month club!
A few words on Charitocracy
Firstly, for newcomers: the cause with the most votes each month wins the pot. No matter how much or how little you contribute, each donor at Charitocracy gets one vote. This is where charity meets democracy. So share this post and ask your friends to join us and vote! That's how we spread the word and, as a result, grow the monthly pot. (Hint: sometimes bigger is better.)
About Sky's the Limit Fund
The mission of Sky’s the Limit Fund (STLF) is to transform the lives of youth in crisis by providing grants, support, and hope through wilderness therapy programs and beyond.
Our vision is for youth to achieve their full potential as healthy and valued members of society.
Why Wilderness Therapy
Wilderness therapy programs use the wilderness as a tool to quickly and effectively impact students at risk. Experiential in nature, emotional growth wilderness programs provide struggling youth an opportunity to challenge themselves physically and emotionally while exploring the unhealthy behaviors that have prevented them from making progress in their lives. The wilderness program environment provides a supportive, non-judgmental arena in which students can process their limiting beliefs and core issues, and begin to view themselves and their abilities from a different perspective. The challenges inherent in a wilderness setting provide daily success experiences which serve to challenge old, negative beliefs and lead to new, more positive self-perceptions.
