You often find the homeless tucked away in public places.
They can be found on sidewalks, in subway stations and on park benches. Sometimes panhandlers will walk through subway cars and ask for help, but generally they keep to themselves.
Here's a follow-up to an earlier post about a worthy New York cause.
The Fresh Air Fund brings inner city children out to the country to experience a break from their harsh surroundings.
From now until June 30th, donations to the Fresh Air Fund will be matched by corporate donors. Yup. Perfect timing, since everyone's a bit tight for cash right now. So every precious dollar you donate will in essence be doubled.
Fresh Air Fund is also looking for nearby host families, who can host a child for a week or two, ages six to twelve.
What an opportunity to make a difference?
