Tell us about the upcoming documentary on XP.
This is very exciting! The Dark Side of the Sun is a professional documentary created by the Italian film company Citrullo International. It is three years in the making, involving two full years of filming at camp, visits to campers' homes all over the world, and lots of editing. We had the wonderful experience of watching our two youngest and another camper do the voiceovers for the animated characters in the film. I can't wait to see the final product! It should be out in late spring, early fall, televised globally, and presented through a couple of international film festivals.
What are some ways people can get involved with the XP Society?
On our webpage we list ways for people to become involved through volunteering their time and talent, hosting a fundraiser, donating items to camp, making meals to share with campers and monetary gifts. We have been blessed for sixteen years to be able to offer this program free to families of children who can never be in daylight, because of the generosity of so many. These last two years have been very hard economically, though, and we could always use funds for things we can't get donated, like heat and electricity and transportation.
