A couple announcements

Occasionally people email me with links and press releases and such that they'd like me to post on the blog and while I'm not always the most timely of email correspondents, I do like to try to help out and publicize other blogs and organizations as long as they're relevant. So, here are a couple things that have come my way in the past few weeks.

Feel free to post your own news, links, blogs, etc. in the comments!

1. The All Girl Army is recruiting new young feminists for its network of blogs:
The main part of the All Girl Army site is the individual blogs for no more than 29 girls and women between the ages of 10 and 25 who identify as feminist, and a single, collective blog which highlights entries from the individual blogs, as well as news items pertinent to women and girls and topics given for more writing and discussion.
For more information, check them out!

2. The Fresh Air Fund is looking for volunteer families to host city-area kids so they can have a summer "fresh air experience":
THE FRESH AIR FUND, an independent, not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer experiences 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.

And, don't forget, feel free to post your own links below!
