Camp Barnabas is a non-profit organization making dreams come true for those with special needs and chronic illnesses.

"Seeing the faces, hearing the laughter, reading the stories of the kids they serve; there is truly nothing like it," Cole Hamels said. "Barnabas makes dreams come true, and we felt called to help them in a big way."

According to Realtor.com, the Hamels had been trying to sell the mansion for $9.75 million before opting to go the more charitable route. The website now lists the home as "off-market."
