My name is Halley Cooper, and I am so excited to be participating in Plant Your Way to Israel, raising funds to support Jewish National Fund’s critical forestry efforts. This is especially critical now, as Israel must recover from recent wildfires that have destroyed forests and communities across the country. It will take decades to recover from this loss.
Your donations will also help me accomplish my goal of spending an educational and life-changing year in Israel before beginning college. I have been researching Gap Year programs for a few months now, and I am confident that this type of program will help me build important life skills while experiencing life in Israel. Fundraising through JNF is an important part of my plan to get there.
The JNF fundraising model is simple: Half of all the funds I raise will support JNF’s green initiatives in Israel, and the rest will be placed in a special account for my trip. I’m raising funds to specifically support JNF’s forestry work – work that has helped Israel enter the 21st century with a net gain in its number of trees.
I hope I can count on your support to help Israel while also helping me earn my way to Israel.
Thank you so much!
