Last week, we covered the Rosh Hashanah period and how it is generally viewed as a time of giving. Even though this specific time of year is hectic for everyone, people from all over stop what they are doing to donate to charity. As we also mentioned several times in the past, 95% of households in America donate to charity even though more than 75% of people are essentially living paycheck to paycheck. However, the bulk of many donations come over the holiday periods. It seems as if people just continue to give.
If you are a long time reader of our charity blog, then you know that we almost always ask for support in order to be able to help the families under our care. We strive to keep readers informed and up to date on our new initiatives. We have worked so hard to help these families that we have not stopped to mention almost anything other than this. Well, that has changed today.
This blog post is specifically dedicated to all of our donors over the years. You, the people who have given generously (even during non-holiday related periods), are the reason why Yad Ezra V’shulamit has been able to grow from helping a few dozen families to thousands of families in Israel. We, and the families under our care, wish we could give you more than a simple thank you in this time of giving. Unfortunately, we barely have the means for a simple Rosh Hashanah meal. Thus, all of us here at Yad Ezra V’Shulamit thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you have done over the years.
It is our hope that this holiday season you have an uplifting experience filled with happiness, love, and of course sweetness!
