From Angels N Camo

Washington-based organization, Angels N Camo is one of 250 finalists in Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good program, which will award vehicles to 100 nonprofit organizations based on votes from the public beginning Oct. 1, 2013.

Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good program will showcase five nonprofit organizations each day for 50 days at Facebook.com/Toyota. Visitors to the page will receive two votes each day to select two separate winning organizations they feel are most deserving of new Toyota vehicles. Angels N Camo will be one of the five organizations highlighted for voting on Oct. 11.

Angels N Camo is asking for the support of local residents in the quest for a new Toyota Tundra. If Angels N Camo receives the most votes and is awarded the vehicle, it will be used to transport children to and from their adventure. Currently, parents have to drive to the adventure location in their personal vehicle. It would help issues of parents that may not have a reliable vehicle for traveling long distances if Angels N Camo could provide transportation in an organization vehicle. Angels N Camo would use the truck for hunting adventures and for transporting hunting and fishing necessities that are needed for adventures. The truck would also

be used for traveling when doing speaking engagements and when setting up information booths at community events. To learn more about Angels N Camo, visit their main website at www.angelsncamo.org or their Facebook page at

The nonprofit was founded in January 2012 for the mission to raise funds and grant hunting and fishing adventure trip wishes for eastern North Carolina children who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Currently, Angels N Camo has granted four wishes and is in the planning stages for two more this year.
