A few weeks ago, I received an email about this US-based organization with an advocacy in providing children living in the city experience how it is to live in the suburbs or countryside and in the process, get to experience FRESH AIR.
I have not easily posted the email or created a post for this because this is not applicable here in the Philippines from which this blogger is located. Honestly, how I wish this is being done here too as I have been born and raised in the city. How I would have loved to experience living in the province even for a while.
I may not be able to fully support this US-based advocacy but Sara, told me that my blog can help them spread the word around. So in my own little way, I am now publishing the full transcript of her email to me. Luckily if somebody from the US happens to read this post, support can be generated too. And to Sara, I do hope you get to have the needed number of host families for this. Here it is–
As a lover of the great outdoors, I thought this would be an issue that you and the readers of Kulit On The Run would care about. The Fresh Air Fund is in need of host families for this summer. Host families are volunteers who open their hearts and home to a child from the city to give them a Fresh Air experience that can change lives. If you could help to get the word out it would really help us place these wonderful children into a loving host family. It’s only for up to two weeks, but it’s an experience that can change their life.
I’ve put together a social media news release, so please feel free to use any of the images, graphics, banners, or copy:
We also just received a tremendous offer by a very generous donor. Any gift given from now until the end of June will be matched dollar-for-dollar. I was hoping you could help by posting a mention, tweet, or by putting up one of our banners on your site. Please let me know if you are able to help and if you have any questions.
Thank you so much,
