New Year Appeal - Big Donors (Direct Mailing)

Dear Friend,

The Navah Organization (NAVAH) would like to take this opportunity to thank you most sincerely for your kind generosity over the past year. Thanks to your donation we were able to continue our vital work in the community visiting terror victims in their homes, hospitals and rehabilitation centers. We were able to deliver care packages with your warm messages of comfort and provide them with financial assistance, on a monthly basis, in their hours of extreme need. Without your help, we would not have succeeded in continuing to provide these vital services.

In May 2002 for example, Mrs. A was seriously injured in a terrorist attack in Rishon LeTzion, and as a result, lost partial use of her legs. When NAVAH first visited her in the hospital she expressed doubt that anyone would be able to help her. She explained that she was unable to return home to care for her four children because her building could not provide her with a railing that would enable her to physically access her apartment. That same week, NAVAH ensured that a railing was installed, and Mrs. A was able to return home to her family.

In the same attack in Rishon LeTzion, Mr. S, an educated man, was severely injured -- a nail from the explosion is embedded in his spine and he is paralyzed. At the same time, he is fighting cancer. When NAVAH volunteers met him, he requested a laptop that would enable him to be keep himself occupied and work from home. NAVAH was able to fulfill his request, and today NAVAH volunteers continue to visit him and keep in touch.

As we approach the New Year, a time when we celebrate the creation of the world, and take a moment to reflect and self evaluate, we hope you will again open your hearts to NAVAH and the thousands of terror victims and their families, who struggle every day to cope with their new realities. Rosh Hashanah is referred to in the Bible as Yom
Ha-Zikkaron (the day of remembrance) - a fitting time to remember all those people whose lives have been irreparably damaged as a result of terrorism.

Thank you again for your outstanding support. We wish you and your family "L'shanah tovah tikatev v'taihatem" (May you be inscribed and sealed for a good year).

Yours truly,

Name of Person
