It’s official – I’m running in The Miami Marathon on 1/27/19 – my first ever. I've never run more than 4 miles in my life but I’m training my %$# off to achieve this goal. Now here’s where you come in. I'm running/walking/crawling with the JCS Alliance Team Blue Card to raise money to benefit JCS Holocaust Survivors Support Services in Miami. The best part is that for every $1 you donate, Holocaust Survivors will receive $20 in services – that’s right a 20-to-1 match. Your charitable impact is really extraordinary.
As the Board Chair of Jewish Community Services of South Florida (JCS), I am proud to be a member of The JCS Alliance Team Blue Card.
The Blue Card is a premier charity that focuses exclusively on supporting needy Holocaust Survivors. Financial support is given either directly to the client or through agencies such as JCS. Grants are provided for food, health care, psychotherapy, prescription drugs, personal emergency response system, housing, transportation and various one-time emergencies.
After all they have suffered, these men and women should not have to choose between paying for food or paying for medicine. Dignity was forcibly taken from them during the Holocaust, and The Blue Card ensures that Survivors don't lose their dignity again, in their last years.
The organization's name derives from the original blue paper cards that were issued to the Jewish donors who worked to raise funds for individuals who had lost their jobs. Each time a donation was made, a stamp was put on the card to keep a record.
Please consider making a donation - of any amount - today. With your help, we can smash last year's record-setting amount of approximately $40,000!
