Quick Plug: The Fresh Air Fund

I recently became acquainted with a non-profit group called The Fresh Air Fund, which is a not-for-profit agency that has been active since 1877. Since the group's inception over 1.7 million children have received assistance, and approximately 10,000 New York City children each year enjoy the various free Fresh Air Fund programs.

The group depends on tax-deductible donations, so if you can spare a few dollars in this cash-tight economy, please consider helping out The Fresh Air Fund with a donation to further the mission of providing inner-city children with a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Just heard about it myself and love this cause! My kids have access to so much. They know all the parks around here and on Lake Erie by heart. We take that sort of thing for granted.
