Fresh Air Fund- NEEDS your SUPPORT!


Hi Everyone!

I have already written about this WONDERFUL organization, the "FRESH AIR FUND" and now I'm writing because they need our help....

Today is the last day for supporter's donations for the kids to "double!" If you can please go to their website HERE to find out more info about their program, giving inner city kids in NY a chance to live with host families in the suburbs over the summer, I'm sure you be amazed at what they do! It's a life changing experience for these kids and we can help by being a host family or by donated to their program to help make things happen!

If anyone is interested in become a host family, please contact Fresh Air Fund directly! Here's the link: Fresh Air Fund Host Families wanted.

Thanks so much for your support and have a GREAT summer!!!


More about the Fresh Air Fund (FAF):

THE FRESH AIR FUND, an independent, not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer vacations to more than 1.7 million New York City children from low-income communities since 1877. Nearly 10,000 New York City children enjoy free Fresh Air Fund programs annually. In 2008, close to 5,000 children visited volunteer host families in suburbs and small town communities across 13 states from Virginia to Maine and Canada. 3,000 children also attended five Fresh Air camps on a 2,300-acre site in Fishkill, New York. The Fund’s year-round camping program serves an additional 2,000 young people each year.
