What Different Can Do 2021

Atlanta, GA

What Different Can Do is a month long campaign to flip the perception of "different" on its head. Kids who are neurodiverse are often considered "different" and sidelined, marginalized, isolated, even bullied by others, having a detrimental impact on a child's self-esteem, confidence, and mental health. At Camp Southern Ground, we see differences as secret strengths and believe they should be respected and celebrated. Through the experience of summer camp, we recognize every child as unique, and send them home with a mindset to see others through a new lens – one that recognizes differences as assets. One that changes the world for good.

In addition to featuring engaging content with neurodiversity experts, parents and kids, Camp Southern Ground will lead conversations, share helpful resources and inspire with stories of hope. As part of this campaign, you can create adventure and fun for 600 campers with activities that support their learning differences and social and emotional challenges. All gifts up to $10,000 will be MATCHED 2X so more kids can experience an unforgettable week at camp that can change their lives and, ultimately, the world.
