My name is Kira Gillingwater and on October 27th I will be sitting alone in nature for 3 hours, experiencing the passage of time and the flow of the world with no distractions.

I am doing this to raise money for the p.i.n.e. project's Best Day Ever bursary fund which covers the cost of life-changing nature-connection programs for participants who need financial assistance.

At 13, I went to p.i.n.e's red wolf wilderness overnight camp. The experience was so inspiring and profound.

This summer I worked at p.i.n.e's urban camps, and had an equally impactful experience. I saw children grow so much within a couple weeks of nature connection programming. They became more confident, curious, conscious of others, and respectful of the world around them. Not to mention a strengthening of my own nature connection journey.

Experiences like this benefit kids deeply and create a positive impact on the world!
