As you know, my life would definitely not be the same if not for the Tikvah programs for campers with disabilities at Ramah. I feel that I have gained so much from these programs, both personally and professionally, and now I want to do everything I can to give back!
In May 2015 I will be spending 5 intense days biking in Israel. In addition to the physical challenge, I have also taken on the challenge of raising at least $2000 to support these incredible special needs programs across the Ramah movement.
More important to me than the monetary goal is my participation goal. It is my hope to have a large number of people contribute a small amount, to demonstrate what an incredible impact the Tikvah program has had on so many people. I would really appreciate it if you could donate $5, $18, $100, or anywhere in between.
Each donation will help Ramah offer additional scholarships and make camp more afforable to families with children with special needs. It will also invest in the training and development of the staff members (like me!) who dedicate their summers to working with these wonderful kids. Today, eight Ramah camps offer 14 programs for kids, adolescents and young adults with disabilities.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
