Can you imagine growing up never having seen a forest, taken a hike, or explored the great outdoors? There are thousands of children who live in inner cities and the closest they get to nature is the city park. They live in tough neighborhoods and often lose out on the opportunity to truly be a kid. What if you could help a child spend a couple weeks outside of the concrete jungle and help them go on their first camping trip or hike? Well if you live in the Northeast you can. The Fresh Air Fund helps NYC children get out of the city by placing them host families who can give the kids an opportunity to get to know more than asphault and high rises. These kids would love to play in the backyard, learn to swim, or ride a bike. If you are interested in helping host a child for two weeks click here. If you can't host a child this year, donations are always appreciated and you can learn more about that here. If you help with time or money this year than try to spread the word and help find people who can help. These kids deserve some fun!
