Hello, my name is Sam Feder.
I would like to raise money for The American Friends of Beit Issie Shapiro as my bar-mitzvah project.
Beit Issie Shapiro is Israel's leading organization furthering the rights, opportunities and services for people with disabilities, impacting over 30,000 people every year.
I am raising money for their use of iPads for therapy. The iPads are used with children with disabilities who are unable to speak. Beit Issie Shapiro gives the children special apps so they can use the iPads to communicate with others.
I chose to raise money for this because I think the most important thing in life is the ability to communicate. For instance, in class, if I have a question and the teacher does not call on me, I get a little frustrated. But these children can never speak and that must be extremely hard. I could not imagine life without being able to speak with others and now I have the chance to help these children have an easier time communicating.
Please help me raise money for the children of Beit Issie Shapiro. We can make their lives more complete.
Please watch the short film and learn about Beit Issie's important iPad therapy program.
