The Fresh Air Fund

Not beauty related, but I was asked to blog this in the past & I felt it was definitely worthy of a mention. I am posting to remind everyone about it. Since my last post about this they've been able to find 650 of the 850 host families they need. If you'd like to donate to this cause, click the image & then click the donate link at the top of the site. They also have plenty of buttons & banners to put on your own site if you'd like. :)

"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 2010, 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." - freshairfundhost.org
