Today is YOUR day to do a mitzvah!

I have chosen to participate in an amazing annual event here in Jerusalem. Perhaps you’ve heard of the Jerusalem Marathon? More than 35,000 people participate annually plus around 4,000 people who fly in from outside of Israel. Definitely a special event. So why have a chosen to run (Like most people, I’m not a lover physical exercise), to put my self in congested crowds of people, to wake up at 4am to run around the streets of Jerusalem? Team Lifeline is the reason.

I am raising money for Chai Lifeline, a wonderful organization dedicated to helping very sick children and their families. I have not been involved with Chai Lifeline in the past, but I’ve always heard about the incredible things they do.

This year my step brother who has just become a bar mitzva, (obligated to keep the Torah commandments as of age 13 for boys) had a serious heart surgery. He has had a few surgeries in the past, previous to this one, but this one was different. He was old enough to know what was going on, and to be nervous or even a little bit scared. Chai Lifeline of South Florida was there for him. Since my step brother was a baby, Chai Lifeline has brought so much simcha (joy) to him and his family. From helping with shabbat, to bringing gifts on Chanukah (for EVERYONE in the family), to simply visiting in the hospital with a big smile to cheer everyone up. Chai Lifeline truly changes the morale when it comes to serious illness. Bringing happiness and positivity to those in need of support.

Chai Lifeline is an international organization that provides year-round financial, emotional, and social support to more than 3,000 children and their families every year. Chai Lifeline’s goal is to bring joy to children and hope to their families, enabling them to live full and happy lives despite the presence of illness. Their most famous program is Camp Simcha (and its sister camp, Camp Simcha Special). Every year these two camps offer 450 kids a chance to forget about illness and just be kids again. (To learn more about Chai Lifeline, visit www.chailifeline.org.)

I plan to raise over $1,000 for Chai Lifeline and I hope you will help me reach this goal by making a tax-deductible donation. Your support is a critical part of this effort and I know that together we can make a difference to these children. All donations are 100% tax-deductible and both the Team Lifeline Facebook App and website make donations quick, easy, and secure.

The Team Lifeline website is easy to use and making a donation will only take a minute, so please donate to my personal web page at the Team Lifeline site https://teamlifelineisrael.rallybound.org/Donate/Index/800742?donate= today.
Thank you for supporting me, and in doing so, helping children and their families cope with the diagnosis, treatment and aftermath of serious pediatric illnesses. I look forward to keeping you informed of my progress as a runner.

Wishing only happiness and health,
Tsippy

P.S. Feel free to forward this to anyone you think might be interested in supporting Chai Lifeline. Together we will make a difference.
