As always, The Fresh Air Fund continues to do good work for for inner city children. We're in the midst of the holiday season, with Hanukkah having just wrapped up, Kwanzaa well on its way, and Christmas just around the corner, surely you're struggling to get your gifts in order.
Donating in someone else's name is a great gift for that person whose got everything, and I think we've all got at least one of those on our lists.
No amount is too small, here are a few things your donation can accomplish:
Just $10 will send one child on a bus ride to his or her Friendly Town host family.
$24 provides a child with a week of swimming lessons.
$42 provides a day of Career Awareness classes.
A gift of $50 can fund a camp counselor for a day.
If you can give as much as $91, you provide a child at camp with meals for a week.
Every donation counts.
If you're looking to get involved in another way, maybe fundraising is your strong suit, or you just love a good marathon, Fresh Air Fund is a charity partner for the NYC Half-Marathon, and over the past three years over 200 Fund-Racers have raised more than $300,000!
Participate in this year's NYC Half-Marathon on March 21, 2010! If you'd like to get involved with the race in any way, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you'd like to run in it, there's limited availability for this amazing race; please register here.
