The countdown to Summer 2010 has officially begun, and The Fresh Air Fund is again in need of host families.


The Fresh Air Fund is an independent, not-for-profit agency that has provided free summer vacations to more than 1.7 million New York City (NYC) children from low-income communities since 1877. In 2009, the Fresh Air Fund’s volunteer Host Family program (called Friendly Town) gave close to 5,000 NYC boys and girls (ages 6 to 18) free summer experiences in the country and the suburbs.

Fresh Air children get to experience the following:
– playing in the backyard
– 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

You can open up your hearts and homes for a few weeks to give NYC children a memorable summer experience. Click here to learn more about becoming a host family. You can also donate online to give NYC children the experience of a lifetime.

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
