In 2015, I experienced for the first time what it was like to have a Fresh Air Fund child in our home.  It was so much fun.  The Fresh Air Fund is an organization that brings children from inner city NYC to Maine.  It allows these kids the opportunity to get a little closer to nature and away from the fast paced city life.

The Fresh Air Fund is currently looking for Maine families to open their hearts and homes to these kids.  It's incredibly rewarding.  As a result, my daughter Emma has a friend for life and her name is Kimberly.

Welcoming a Fresh Air Fund child into your home doesn't require a huge amount of work or travel.  All you need to provide is a comfy place to sleep and an extra seat at the dinner table.  Maybe a trip to the beach, a hike or swimming in a pool.  The experience won't only change the child's will change yours as well.
