Foundation Donates to Fresh Air Fund to Give Kids Access to Summer Camps

posted by Tariq Farid June 7, 2017

The countdown to summer has begun.  Please join me in a countdown to summer and help give Greater New Haven children a summer full of adventures and opportunities.  Since 1905, the New Haven Register’s Fresh Air Fund, a non-profit, has provided summer experiences to more than 35,000 young people in greater New Haven.

When you give to the  New Haven Register Fresh Air Fund, you are giving children that chance to sit in the sun and laugh, learn and celebrate summer.  Fresh Air Fund campers are the kids who motivate their peers and give back.  They’re the kids who grow into future leaders.  They might establish their own companies, like I did. 

Growing up in West Haven, I benefited from going to summer camp. I believe in giving back and making opportunities available for others, especially children.  Three years ago, The Tariq Farid Foundation made its first donation to the Fresh Air Fund to help send kids to camp.  Recently, the Foundation made another donation.

I believe that when God blesses you, the way to be thankful is to look around and give back.

Help a young person to experience all the fun, friendships and adventures that summer camp offers. Consider a donation to the Fresh Air Fund.  It doesn’t take a lot to make a difference.

A sweet surprise for some special UPS moms

posted by Tariq Farid May 12, 2017

Growing up I saw my mother take on many roles: caregiver, friend, chef, cheerleader, tutor, the list could go on and on. I’ve found that there is no limit to what mothers can and will do for their children to help them succeed. As I’ve shared many times, it is because of the sacrifices and love from my mother that my family and I are able to enjoy the American dream.

Honoring the hardest workers, mothers

posted by Tariq Farid May 8, 2017

I’ve found time and time again that mothers are truly some of the hardest working people on the planet, and many times the unsung heroes behind us all. I know this to be true of my own mother, Salma, as she did all she could possibly do to keep our family healthy and happy when I was growing up. It couldn’t have been easy, bringing her young family over to the United States, but my mother and father made it happen. It is to them that I owe my success, as they gave me the opportunity to live the American Dream.
