I am raising funds for this charity to support children learn to become leaders, work with mentors to develop the skills they need to achieve their dreams, and find safe places to explore, play and discover their potential.
Since its founding in 1877, The Fresh Air Fund, a not-for-profit youth development organization, has provided free life-changing summer experiences in the outdoors to more than 1.8 million children from New York City’s underserved communities
In their words:
"At sleepaway camps in New York’s Mid-Hudson Valley, visiting volunteer host families along the East Coast and in NYC-based programs, children have new experiences, learn new skills and gain new perspectives. Fresh Air children also participate in year-round leadership, career exploration and educational programs.
We believe that investing in a child’s journey through life provides an opportunity for young people to learn, grow and thrive in our city and beyond. The magic of a Fresh Air summer, full of new experiences and new friends, is simple yet transformative."
Thank you for your generosity and your commitment to Fresh Air kids.
