J Robinson Intensive Camps has partnered with Smile Network International, a Minnesota-based nonprofit humanitarian organization, to raise funds for providing life-changing facial surgery to impoverished children and young adults in developing countries. Donations raised by JROB campers attending every JROB Intensive Camp are matched by J Robinson Intensive Camps. In 2014 and 2015, campers raised $8,500 which was matched by our company for a total of $17,000, leading to 34 children receiving this operation. Learn more about their organization at www.smilenetwork.org/.
Smile Network International funds surgical missions and provides necessary supplies needed to repair birth defects, with a focus on cleft lips, cleft palates and other conditions requiring surgical intervention such as burns, tumors or other genetic defects. The surgeries are free of charge and are available to children who would otherwise go untreated. For as little as $500 per surgery, a child who once lived with shame will be given the gift of a happier and healthier life.
Project Canaan is a 2,500 acre large-scale land development project being designed by business people to come alongside Africans and bring expertise, resources and heart together to find a holistic solution to a complex set of issues. It will provide training and employment, grow large amounts of food to stimulate the local economy and allow for export while supporting orphans and vulnerable children on the property and across the nation of Swaziland. There are two sides to this development project, the first is the “farm” side and the second is the “children” side.
J Robinson Intensive Camps is honored to support Heart for Africa and all of its endeavors with Project Canaan.
In memory of Janet and Les Krebsbach Sr. and their descendantsThe Krebsbach Charitable Foundation was founded in May 2010 by Krebsbach grandsons Mike, Larry, Ricky and Steve after the untimely deaths of Mike’s son Joshua (great grandson) and grandson Greg (Steve and Ricky’s brother).
To honor their family, the Krebsbach grandsons have created opportunities to assist those in need by focusing on supporting unique pursuits.
The Krebsbach Charitable Foundation offers college scholarships to assist kids that participate in historically underfunded sports and activities.
New in 2012, the foundation began offering grants to assist children of all ages in attending specialized sports, music or arts camps as well as other extra curricular activities that may help them grow their particular talents.
