Help Matthew Get to Camp–and get a Wallpaper!

Let’s get the bottom line “up front”–Matt wants to create custom wall-papers for you to help get to camp, or could you just donate two dollars?

Matthew has enjoyed swimming and water polo this season.  If you have viewed any of the water polo videos here, you can see how much fun they have had on their way to winning the State HS Championship.

The team is planning a trip as a team to Pepperdine University this summer to attend what is perhaps the premiere water polo training camp. They hope to continue their growth as Polo players and perhaps win not just a second State Championship for the Boys team, but to regain the title for the Girls team.

That said, we are asking for your help.  This camp is not cheap.  They estimate that it will cost $1200 to send a player to camp.  We are hoping you can help send Matt.

Matthew wants to work to earn his money to get to camp.  As you can see from this website, he is quite talented with the graphic arts, and would like to do “Custom Desktop Wall-Papers” for you.  For $50, he will use up to three (large) photos that you send him, and work with you to create your own special wallpaper.  Imagine having your own wallpaper on your computer, making whatever statement you wish!

You can view many of his wallpapers by clicking on the page-tab above, “Desktop Wallpapers by Matthew

If you don’t want, or need, a “Custom Desktop Wall-Paper” you can still help.  Just donate $2, $5, $10, or really any amount, to help out.  If 600 people each donated just $2 each, he is on his way!

How do you do this?  Well, if you want a wallpaper created, email Matt at and tell him what you want.  He will write you back within 24-48 hours (pending swim-meet events) and make the arrangements.  Once the wallpaper is completed to your satisfaction, then use the “donate” button you see off to the left to make your contribution.

If you just want to simply make a small donation, again, use that  “donation” tab off to the left side.    Just click on it, and fill out the amount you wish to donate, along with the other payment information.

Using PayPal makes it really that simple!

Thanks for all your support!
