For our American readers: can you help the Fresh Air Fund this summer?

We've written about the Fresh Air Fund before; it's an organisation that does very valuable work, giving inner-city children in the U.S. positive experiences which will broaden their horizons and allow them to see very different worlds and ways of life to that of their own.

FAF organises stays with volunteer host families and FAF camps for needy inner-city kids in the school summer holidays. Most of these children spend their whole lives in urban areas with little exposure to the natural world and animals, and few opportunities to swim, hike, climb and all the other fun stuff that a lot of more fortunate kids take for granted.

FAF is looking for host families to volunteer for Summer 2011. If you think you might be able to help, watch the video below then go to the website to find out more.
