I bring exciting news along with well wishes…
As of January 1st. Camp Second Helpin’ will be relocating and reopening with many new and exciting changes…
We will be located at St. Claire's on Beach blvd. in Waveland, Mississippi and now we will be able to offer dorm style housing for volunteers coming down to rebuild with the ability to house between 200-250 people, along with an industrial mobile kitchen, things are looking very good…. We will still be a community center open to the public, but now we will be able to work towards offering more things to the public, such as a food bank and a free clothing outlet. I would like to thank all of you that have not forgotten us, and special hugs to those that have contacted us about coming down, or passing info on to those that are interested in coming down.
We have had many exciting inquiries as of late…for those that would like to learn more about our non-profit family community center you can check out our web site (which is in the process of getting revamped) at:
Or if you have any questions you can reach Ron-administrator at 228-342-8834 or me at 228-239-6338 we would love to see some Good Hearted, Hard Working Brothers and Sisters come help bring hope and happiness into the lives of people we may never have reached before…Rising from the dust will come a tribe of Rainbow Warriors lending a hand and leading the way to a new world…Lets grasp this opportunity to truly make a difference…
…Much Love Family… Momma KaBoom

We’ve been here 9 months now and it’s been one hot Summer that is for sure, but thankfully no severe weather as of yet. But I’m not here for small talk; I want to make a plea. Our building fell through, yes this is sad, but it’s far from the end of our journey. We are working on funding the building of a building for the community center that is why I write today. To make a plea, to all of you wonderful people that have been following our journey, if each of you made a small donation because as you know, every dollar helps, we will be that much closer to actually building. I am sure you hear of all the progress made in New Orleans, just last week they said on the news that 700 restaurants have opened again since Katrina. Waveland is still so wiped out, with 90% of it’s residential, and commercial buildings, just destroyed. Look at any number of fully functioning communities that have community center, or food kitchens, why? Because there is such a need even with a sound structure to support those going through hard times. For the people of Hancock County there haven’t been such a strong need for community support since Camille. After the storm it took people from all parts of the country to reach out and lend a hand, but we all need to continue to do this even in small ways. That’s why I make this plea to you now, if you could donate just a dollar, what a difference it would begin to make in giving this community want it needs and deserves. Just think, you could help make the difference.
Please keep in mind that no amount of carrying signs, marching, meditation, prayer, signing petitions, or voting will ever carry as much power as helping one person gut out her ruined house, or feeding a single mother at the end of another stressful day of red-taping it to a Fema trailor. This is a chance to extract yourself from our traditionally divided and materialistic American culture, shake off the stagnant mundane, and participate in true community building during a time of suffering and hardship.

Please help if you can... $1.00 or $10.00 sent by enough people can make a HUGE dent in our operation cost. Send this plea out to everyone. We are in Waveland and making a difference!

...All for the good...
We are beginning a two week break...Before we move into our new building...
We will still be in Hancock county, but in Bay St. Louis, At St. Augustine’s retreat...
We will have a new Vulcan kitchen, an auditorium, and dorms...
We have also acquired a bus to put together the mobile community kitchen, and refurbished Vulcan gear for that...We really could use some Hard Working, Family Minded People come create the community center that we will be leaving for Hancock county...
It is so beautiful there...With lots of grass, and Beautiful trees, including a small orchard...
It has been such a blessing to see people asking about us online, that we're not forgotten...
Anyone interested in joining in the efforts, give us a call: 228-342-8834...
...It would do my heart good to see some 'old friends'...HINT-HINT......

Well folks, it's paying off...We have the American Legion site, on Coleman Ave. just a block from the beach, and when the historical society finishes the civic center, we'll be moving the community center into that building for a real community center for the city of Waveland. We also have a small crew in Pearlington now too, and have been asked to go to the Kiln, as of now we can only do Pearlington and the Waveland project until we get more hands,we can move into our new site Thursday morning and we need lots of hands, it's been cleared but not cleaned. We are in need of more cookware spices, teas, coffee, other various herbs, first aid supplies, chocolate, tents of all sizes, tarps, shovels, and heavy duty rakes, and brooms, rope, bug repellents, sun screens, teekee torches, candles, Rainbow flags, bleach, warm winterware, blankets, fun family movies on DVD for family movie night on a screan, fun family games(indoor&outdoor) book for all ages, and all the good family energy that we can get.
