Another great cause

The Evil Kity Team is passionate about many different issues. If you've been a loyal fan, you know how much we care about fair treatment of workers all around the globe. That's why we pleaded to never use sweatshops to produce our clothes.

Till today I didn’t get a chance to voice my support to any specific organization. However, after receiving email from Sara Wilson from The Fresh Air Fund, I decided to give it a plug.

The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer vacations to more than 1.7 million New York City children from low-income communities since 1877. Nearly 10,000 New York City children enjoy free Fresh Air Fund programs annually. In 2008, close to 5,000 children visited volunteer host families in suburbs and small town communities across 13 states from Virginia to Maine and Canada. 3,000 children also attended five Fresh Air camps on a 2,300-acre site in Fishkill, New York. The Fund’s year-round camping program serves an additional 2,000 young people each year.

For the next couple of days, any gift you make to The Fresh Air Fund will be matched dollar for dollar by a generous group of donors. Go here to donate.
