The Fresh Air Fund

Sara from The Fresh Air Fund has contacted me regarding her charity.

"We rely on donations to keep our programs strong, and helping children is a cause that I am sure your readers would be interested in.

Of course, we're always looking for hosts and any help would be fantastic. Together we can help make sure these children have everything they need!"

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.

If you can help I am sure the "Fresh Air Fund" team would really appreciate it!
