Belated CKIU Blog Introduction
Welcome back to the CKIU blog!!!
With all of the excitement around the beginning of the school year and the start of a new year of Camp Kesem I completely forgot to introduce myself and this blog. For that I am sorry, but that’s why I am here now.
My name is Hobbes (aka Steve Jastrow) and I am the PR/Marketing Coordinator for Camp Kesem Indiana University. That’s me on the left there! I oversee the CKIU website, as well as the Facebook and Twitter accounts (which you all should Like/Follow if you haven’t already). I am also in charge of marketing our different events throughout the year across campus and getting some publicity through local media outlets.
For this blog, I plan on a couple different types of posts throughout the year, not just an regular, boring update every other week. Some of the types of posts include:
- Fundraising updates/news on how the planning for CKIU 2013 is going
- Counselor Stories
- Camper Stories
- Video Blogs or what some people call VLOGS
- Pictures of Events
If you have any other ideas of content you would like to see or if you are a camper that wants to write for the blog email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As for an update on how things are going these days, we are off to a good start to the year. We have been very successful on football gameday cannings as well as canning on Kirkwood. There is a Dine-to-Donate coming up on Tuesday, October 9th at Noodles & Co. on Kirkwood. If you are in Bloomington between 5 and 9pm stop in at Noodles and say “Camp Kesem” when you order and we get 25% of the money.
Also, starting next week we will be in the midst of a LIKE WAR with Camp Kesem Illinois. Lookout for more information on that and how you can help on our Facebook page later this weekend.
Welp, that’s all I got this week, check back for an update in the coming weeks.
