Can you imagine never, ever having spent a day outside of New York City? Never once playing in a back yard? Imagine not knowing the joy of catching fireflies on a summer night.
Recently, I was contacted by Sara Wilson of The Fresh Air Fund about sharing a way you can help a kid enjoy a vacation away from the city. You can donate or offer to be a host family depending on where you live. It sounds like a really great experience and a good cause. I'm seriously considering hosting a child in 2012.
