Fresh Air Fund Holiday Donations

Every year, The Fresh Air Fund gives thousands of inner-city children the priceless gift of fun – and opens the door to a lifetime of opportunities.

Whether its a two-week trip to the country to visit a volunteer host family, or a fun-filled and educational stay at one of our camps, our programs make for unforgettable memories – and open a world of new friendships and fresh possibilities.

Christmas is the perfect time to donate to a non-profit organization. Please consider giving a donation to FAF in the name of a family member, friend, or co-worker.

* Just $10 will send one child on a bus ride to his or her Friendly Town host family.
* $24 provides a child with a week of swimming lessons.
* $42 provides a day of Career Awareness classes.
* A gift of $50 can fund a camp counselor for a day.

If you can give as much as $91, you provide a child at camp with meals for a week. To find out more information about donating or other efforts, please go to for more information.

A very worthy cause... but this charity only serves kids from New York City.

There are lots of local charities that serve kids from Duluth, Superior and the surrounding area that need a lot help right now (and I'm betting New Yorkers aren't going to be chipping in money toward them).

so... wait, is the first and only thing swilson has posted? I agree with dlhmn that it sounds worthy and all, but it is not related to Duluth or anywhere in this region, and you know frankly, at the risk of raising some hackles, I'd say this doesn't belong here at all. This isn't even shilling for local business, and seems like outright spam in some ways.

Can I request it be removed completely?

Also... the entire post is cut and pasted directly from that charity's home page.
