This blue bird box was made at Camp Bluebird, which is a camp for cancer patients. Prince bought the last one made last year and so far we have put up in our yard, four new blue bird boxes.  
Camp Bluebird also sell cook books and yes we do have the cook book from last year. In the front of the cookbook it says the following:
" Camp Bluebird Mission is to provide a safe haven for adults affected by cancer to find knowledge, hope, and healing through caring, sharing, and laughter. 
Camp Bluebird is a 3 day, 2 night camp retreat where adult cancer patients are provided with education, support and encouragement in living life after a cancer diagnosis. The first Camp Bluebird was organized in 1985 by a cancer survivor at Saint Vincent's Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama. Today, Camp Bluebird is held in many locations throughout the country, Middle Tennessee Camp Bluebird began in 1987 as a project of Saint Thomas Hospital and the Telephone Pioneers of America (now the Bell South Pioneer Volunteers) and is one of the longest running camps of its kind. 
Camp Bluebird exists because of generous donations from many individuals. To make a tax deductible gift, go to www.stthomas.org/support."
The kitty justice is to check your area to see if you have a Camp Bluebird you can support if you do not live in Tennessee.

Don't think there is anything like that in my area but is a good idea. Like the little birdhouse.

Great mission.. Obviously, Camp Bluebird Mission offers a much needed retreat for cancer patients and families. That is so needed!!!

Glad you have 4 Bluebird nestboxes in your yard. We just have one ---and we hope it will be used this spring.. The Bluebirds have already checked it out.

Hugs,

Glad to hear you have at least one. Prince read that sometimes sparrows take over the box and if you put up two you can rest assured that at least one will be occupied by bluebirds. hope you are feeling better. Peace
