They say it takes a village to raise a child, and if you are currently viewing my page, you are a part of my village. I am sharing my story in the hopes that you will choose to support me in my journey on the path of leadership as I venture to Israel this summer for Interntional Leadership Seminar in Israel.
I am excited to be participating in Plant Your Way to Israel, raising funds to support Jewish National Fund’s critical forestry efforts while at the same time raising funds for my own visit to Israel! I have always wanted to visit Israel and the opportunity to raise awareness and fundraise for such a great cause at the same time is such a privilege.
The program is simple: Half of all the funds I raise will be put in a special account for my trip, and the other half will go towards JNF’s green initiatives in Israel.
If each person reading this was able to support my dream, traveling to Israel on this amazing experience, with "chai" ($18), my dreams could become a reality. As "chai" means life in Hebrew and is also my Hebrew name, even this contribution would mean the absolute world to me. As I travel to Israel, a part of you will be with me on this journey. It would be an honor for me to place a prayer from you or for you in the Western Wall for your gratitutude and support.
It is considered a Mitzvah (a good deed), to plant trees in Israel, and I hope, if you're considering planting a tree, that you will do so through my personal page! If you would like a certifacte for any trees that you would like to plant in honor or in memory of others, please call the JNF Plant Your Way number (800-542-8733) and mention "Morgan Shapiro's Plant Your Way to Israel" page so I will be funded!
Please help me reach my fundraising goal for my Plant Your Way to Israel experience – make your tax-deductible donation today!
Thank you for being a part of my village!
