One of the great things about surrounding yourself with generous spirits is that you'll often be presented with the opportunity to make a difference. Wonderful creatives have been hard at work to put together what promises to be a fun night of "mystery and mayhem" to benefit a very worthwhile cause. It is an integral part of our core business philosophy to give back whenever possible. It's what makes us tick!
We are proud and honored to be a small part of this effort. Anahi DeCanio will be donating an abstract painting entitled "NY LOVE" to Mystery by Design. The event is organized by the Designers & Builders Alliance of Long Island for the benefit of KiDS NEED MoRE. The painting will be part of the event's fundraising auction. Please read below about these two wonderful organizations and their efforts to be a positive force and contributing members in the community.And...please read below! So much talent involved! It will be a can't miss event!

KiDS NEED M♥RE is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of children, families & young adults coping with cancer and life-threatening illness.
In 1990, a group of concerned parents created a camping experience for their children diagnosed with cancer and their siblings. Camp Adventure now serves the east coast and tri-state area. It remains one of the only camps of its kind to serve child cancer patients and siblings.
In 2013, a dedicated group of Camp Adventure volunteers began KiDS NEED M♥RE(Motivational Recovery Environments, Inc.) to parent the camp and ensure its longevity.
With the help of many wonderful people, we will be able to continue Camp Adventure, where children coping with cancer can celebrate life in a safe and positive environment while providing respite for their families and caregivers.
With the love and support of so many amazing people we now provide other programs and services throughout the year for our kids and their families.
At KiDS NEED M♥RE we believe that people and families coping with life-threatening illness and trauma need opportunities to enjoy normal day-to-day activities. For over 25 years, through the historic Camp Adventure program, our volunteers have provided fun activities that foster peer relationships, independence and respite. We believe that fun heals.
At KiDS NEED M♥RE we believe that children and families coping with life threatening illness and trauma deserve to do more than just survive. They deserve to thrive!
Our programs and activities are designed to reunite siblings and allow parents time for respite. We create networks with other families that are facing similar experiences.
