BURNED CHILDREN RECOVERY FOUNDATION
OUR BENEFITING CHARITY
The Burned Children Recovery Foundation was founded in June of 1989. Our founder, Michael T. Mathis, had a dream of helping as many children and their families overcome the pain and hardships of re-entering the community they live in as possible. To help burn survivors of all ages to live happy and full lives. Michael, through the foundation, has helped by sending out over 95,000 information packs in 18 years. He has set a standard of giving that is truly remarkable. Although the foundation is located in the Northwest, they work and help people from all across America to recover and live full and active lives. This can be seen in the operation of the only National Camp Phoenix, where the Foundation pays to bring children in from all over America for a summer camp of learning and fun. From the very first day, campers are taught the skills they need to live and rise above the harassment they get in their everyday life as a burn survivor. They are given the tools to enjoy life and to teach about life as a survivor to people that do not understand. The children have fun with other burn survivors as well as people from the community.
This is a tremendous tool in the lives of these children and now it is time to take it to the next level. Every year there are children that cannot come to camp, children that get turned away because the camp can only handle so many at a time, the cost of getting the kids safely to camp, the food, and all the support items needed. The foundation has built the hope and dreams of a happy life in so many children but now we need help to reach the lives of so many more in need.
