fresh air fun

Amongst the ridiculous spam in my e-mail today [that acai berry super cleanse is not sounding any better, people; give it up], I spied a note from the Fresh Air Fund about hosting a city kid this summer. First, I love to be helpful & possibly inspiring to kids and second, watching videos of joyful youths cavorting in parks on bright blue-green days made me see the sunlight at the end of our rainy tunnel. YES! Visions of perking up our extra bedroom & planning hours upon hours of outdoor fun danced in my head.

Alas, I am not in the designated area of the US to participate in hosting [though we will be donating]. But I know some of my beloved readers are. I beseech [5 point word] you to check out these videos and visit the Fresh Air Fund site; you will not be able to resist signing up. And dudes, that is prime blog fodder for weeks - the photos alone will bring the world joy. At the very least, please post or pass on the info. This program is a marvelous blessing.

Plus I'd do just about anything for Tiki Barber...

Their laughter alone sends me.

No trying to adopt Grocery Boy this summer so you have an excuse to freshen up the spare room.

When I was a little girl we had the same kid from Fresh Air come three summers in a row. He was from the inner-inner city and was floored by our backyard and the quiet.

It really is a great organization.

Tiki and I (and his brother Ronde) grew up in the same town AND went to the same college at the same town, yet we've never once crossed paths. I love how much those guys give back.

What a fabulous idea!

What a wonderful program. I have a friend who attended summer camp for many year, finally serving as a counselor when he was old enough. I think the program served him really well.

I'm going to have to ask him if it was this program.
