Gabi's Bat Mitzvah Project: Special In Uniform "Chesed-thon"

For my Bat Mitzvah project, I am raising money for an organization called Special In Uniform.  Special In Uniform integrates young people with special needs into the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and, in turn, Israeli society.  Special In Uniform focuses on each person's ability -- not disability -- and helps them to find their own unique role in the IDF and learn life and job skills for their post-army service. 

In order to raise funds for this impressive organization, as well as to help those in need in my own community (Skokie and Chicago), I am commiting to "running" a marathon of chesed activies.  I will volunteer 26 hours between now and when I celebrate my Bat  Mitzvah this November.  I hope you will consider sponsoring my efforts.

If you are in need of a mother's helper, a home cooked meal, or someone to visit the homebound please let me know!

Check out my event page for updates on my chesed activites as I go along!

Thank you for your support!
