Project: Gabe started with a Bar Mitzvah project and ended up raising over $16,000 (which is about 530 backpacks) plus another $9,000 from his own Walk for Darfur! In achieving this, he spoke to hundreds of people in local schools, synagogues, youth groups and more . . . and got them all involved as well. And now, Gabe has been named a Real Hero Good Samaritan by the American Red Cross for all his work. Read more »

Project: For her bat mitzvah, Sammi made a choice to be an adult and take the opportunity to raise awareness about the genocide in Darfur. Along with her parents David and Jodi, and her brother Josh, Sammi stayed true to her mission and was able to present a large check to Tzivia to help the refugees of the genocide. Hopefully more will follow in her footsteps. Read more »

Thanks so much for all that you guys do to make things better in this world!! Read more »

Project: Jacob wanted to something to help the people of Darfur for his mitzvah project, so when he heard about the Solar Cooker Project he started to think of ways to raise money . He came up with selling painted spoons and selling them for six dollars each. The hand painted spoon can be hung up as a reminder of the genocide while a plain wooden spoon is sent to the Darfur refugees to help the women cook their food. In a few months he has already raised over 3,000 dollars for the project! Read more »
