The Fresh Air Fund

Living in Portland we have easy access to amazing parks and nature preservers but we are also minutes away from streams, rivers, and forests for the boys to explore and engage. Not all kids are lucky enough to have that space to interact with nature and find adventure at the edges of civilization. The Fresh Air Fund is a program set up to help get kids out of the city and into back yards for such simple pleasures as:

  • Laughing in the sunshine
  • Catching fireflies
  • Riding bicycles
  • Learning to swim
  • Running barefoot through the grass
  • Gazing at the stars on moonlit nights
  • Building sandcastles
  • Making new friends
  • Simple pleasures of life away from the inner-city
Right now they are looking for host families in the North East United States to host kids as well as people around the country to help support this great cause. If you or someone you know can help please go to the linked site and get plugged in.
