Camryn is 10 year old Dancer from Holtsville. At the age of 7, Camryn started saving up her change to buy toys for kids in need. After hurricane sandy hit, she went around the house collecting as many items as she could to give to people who lost everything. That Christmas, she asked everyone she knew to donate a toy or money for foster children. With the money she raised, she went shopping at toys r us and ended up with hundreds of toys to donate to the foster children at New Alternative for Children!
Her second year, she raised money to buy an iPad for a little girl in her dance studio battling cancer to help entertain her during her chemo sessions. The toys she collected that year were all donated to the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island. For her third year, Camryn went back to NAC and again donated hundreds of toys!
This year, K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers named Camryn their child ambassador and she was invited to join them and Burlington Coat Factory on Good Morning America! In appreciation, Camryn started a coat drive at her school, dance studio, and brothers karate studio. On top of the coats, this year Camryn is also collecting toys for underprivileged children in her school district and surrounding areas!!
