Children are a gift from the Lord; the fruit of the womb, a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children born in one's youth. Blessed are they whose quivers are full. They will never be shamed contending with foes at the gate. ~Psalm 127:3-5

Another Fresh Air Fund Marathon

I love having some small part in sharing information about really good causes. So here is another quick post for The Fresh Air Fund for the next marathon:

On March 20th, there will be another half-marathon in NYC and the Fresh Air Fund-Racers team needs more runners to benefit this worthy cause. For those of you who don't know what the Fresh Air Fund is, it is a not-for-profit agency which provides summer experiences in the country for children from disadvantaged communities. Host families and camps in 13 states and Canada welcome these children every year to give them the benefit and enjoyment of country life. To learn more about this awesome cause, click here.

If you would like to be a runner in this March's race, click here for more info.

The Fresh Air Fund is also in need of more host families for this summer. A host family volunteers to open their home and family life to a child or children from the city, giving them a "fresh air experience they'll never forget." If you would like to host a child this summer, click here for info.
