What is the organization for which you are accepting donations?

Royal Family Kids' Camp

It happens more often than any of us want to believe. Each year, over 3 million American children are reported as abused... physically attacked, emotionally damaged, sexually molested, or severely neglected - often by the people they have loved and trusted most. Many of these children are removed from their abusive homes by Social Services. However, removing the emotional scars from a child is a much more difficult task.

Your help can make a difference! You can help give abused and neglected children a foundation of happy memories that could forever change their lives.

Bob White’s Karate Studio (BWKS) is proud to host an Annual Youth Karate Tournament.
