The Fresh Air Fund, is a two week program that enables children who come from low-income families in New York to stay with a host family in a suburban or country. Basically the program gives a child a different side of summer. He or she will be able to witness and experience activities that may not be possible in a crowded city. Since 1877, this program has been a source of free summer vacations for over a million New York City children.
Now, if you dont' know anyone who can be a host family to a child, you can donate to the Fresh Air Fund website directly to help a child and future host families. Head here to learn more details. Or if you don't have the money to donate right now, spread the word about this program.
Have a great Thursday!!
