The Painted Turtle, an organization that helps children with life-threatening diseases come together and support one another, has recently gotten a makeover thanks to the efforts of several aerospace organizations, including staff members from Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, and Aerojet Rocketdyne. When philanthropist Eric Pulier first joined the camp’s board, he put considerable effort into ensuring that the camp would have the resources to continue its mission well into the future. As of today, it looks as though that goal has largely been accomplished, thanks to a united effort from charitable individuals across many different sectors.
Eric Pulier, for his part, is no stranger to joining organizations and helping them to revitalize their brand and transition into something else. As a financial donor to XPRIZE, Eric Pulier has found himself in the same company as such famous individuals as Elon Musk, Arianna Huffington, and James Cameron. By pouring their considerable wealth into a charitable organization like XPRIZE, these individuals hope to make great strides in the development of new technologies that can benefit all of mankind.
For the staff at The Painted Turtle, Pulier’s efforts have had a great impact on the quality of their lives. While people regularly volunteer their time at the camp, there is almost always something that needs to be worked on. It’s simply the nature of a camp of this magnitude that works year-round to bring joy to many children with complex illnesses. Of course, Eric Pulier understands that a camp will never be enough to make up for everything these children have lost, which is why he has also put significant effort into his other philanthropic initiatives.
It’s clear from these efforts that a camp like The Painted Turtle is just the beginning. As long as Eric Pulier can continue to rally people around causes, there’s no doubt that we’ll be able to all progress forward together.
