Lighting Up Smiles, Across the Miles… (Direct Mailing)
Throughout Israel, in hospitals, rehabilitation centers and in
private homes, there are hundreds of victims of terror recuperating
from physical and emotional trauma. Their lives have been forever
changed, their hopes shattered, and their families torn apart.
Who, if not children, the epitomy of innocence and beauty, can
impact the lives of victims of terror and uplift their spirits?
Children have a natural gift for opening hearts, and radiating
joy - bringing light where there is only darkness and gloom.
This Chanukah, the NAVAH Fund, a non-profit association for volunteering
and assisting victims of terror, will visit almost every person
who has been hurt in a terror attack -- sitting by their bedside,
listening to them, and crying with them. Moreover, they will be
distributing festive care packages, and a monetary endowment,
in the form of Chanukah gelt raised in a special Chanukah initiative.
Recognizing the extraordinary gift of children to bring cheer
and comfort, the NAVAH Fund is appealing to children from around
the world to send Chanukah cards to victims of terror. These cards
will be attached to festive care packages and delivered by the
NAVAH volunteers to victims of terror all over Israel. The NAVAH
Fund has learnt from its "Kids Unite for Israel" project
(an initiative that encourages children to send drawings to victims
of terror), that these childish expressions of love and concern
greatly affect victims of terror, and infuse their fractured lives
with a feeling of hope and comfort. Indeed, on follow-up visits,
NAVAH volunteers have frequently found these colorful pictures
decorating the walls and bedsides of victims of terror.
Make this a special Chanukah for Israeli terror victims -- encourage
your children to light up smiles across the miles!
