Fresh Air Fund

Fresh Air FundRecently I learned about the Fresh Air Fund which is a charity program that matches inner-city kids with host families in the suburbs & small town communities.

This is a program that provides kids a chance to enjoy some good old fashioned dirty fun. Learning how to care for horses, helping to plant a garden and falling asleep next to a campfire are things many kids never have the opportunity to try.

Horse crazy kids are generally pretty good ones & really giving a child the opportunity to become horse crazy is, well, priceless.

Whatever You Can Do

They are looking for donations as well as families interested in hosting a child for up to a two week visit. I thought I’d post about it to see if any of my readers might be interested in getting involved. What a cool chance to help a kid enjoy simply being a kid (and take a week or two off to be a kid again yourself).

If you’d rather donate, until June 30th one of their donors has offered to match every dollar raised – yes, I’m a little late posting, but thought it was worth a go.

So, go take a look around their website to learn what they are all about and if it interests you, I’d love to hear your about your experience (pictures too, please). 😀

We Do What We Can

If the most you can do is repost this and share it with your social media friends, that’s a great start. It’s a good cause and worth checking out. Please do let me know if you become a host, I’d love to share your experience with other readers.
