The situation in Israel has been pretty scary in the past week, with violence emanating from the Hamas organization in Gaza towards Israel. Over 1500 missiles were launched in the past week alone, causing deaths and injuries on both sides. Needless to say, it was a very hard, stressful, and tense week! Such hard times call for unity and good deeds.
Israel Defense Forces soldiers and reservists were enlisted to the ongoing struggle and were based along Israel’s southern border with Gaza, putting their lives at risk to protect the citizens of the country.
Our close friend Sofie, who was tired of not being able to aid in the struggle, decided to do an amazing deed and raise money to show the soldiers how much their country appreciates them. In just two days Sofie raised over 7000 NIS ($1700), donated by friends and family in Israel as well as other countries such as the US and England. The money was used to buy the soldiers supplies they desperately need like adequate clothing for the cold desert nights, sanitary items, warm food, and lots of sweets and treats to keep their morale and energy high. Sofie drove all the way to the front lines in order to personally deliver all the goods to the soldiers.
Our soldiers are working hard and doing an amazing job keeping us safe. They were thrilled to have received all the goods donated by amazing people around the world.
Thank you everyone for your generous donations and thank you Sofie, you are amazing!!
