Let’s Help Fresh Air Fund

THE FRESH AIR FUND, an independent, not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer experiences 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.( Taken from The Fresh Air Fund website)

We can help by donating to their cause or becoming a hosts for Summer 2009.

Head to their site now for more information.

Wish there are such organizations here in the Philippines as well.

    Sounds like a wonderful organization. I've often thought of sending our little one to camp. I know she would love it. Thanks for the information. Also, thanks so much for your sweet words regarding my little one. I appreciate the support.

    Hugs
