My name is Ben Rinn and this summer I plan on doing a volunteer/learning experience in Israel called "Machaneh Bonim b'Israel." This is a wonderful program hosted by the members of Habonim Dror North America where they send about 150 kids all across the US and Canada and send them to Israel for about five weeks where they will have an unforgettable summer of learning about their Jewish identity and volunteering for the practice of progressive labor zionism, while touring the Jewish state of Israel and visiting major locations. The fundraiser I am using to raise enough money to go on this trip is called the "JNF Plant your way to Israel Fund." In this fund, people donate money, and half of the total earnings goes to planting trees in Israel, while the other half helps pay for the trip to Israel and the tour through Israel. I thank you for your time and consideration of helping me make enough money to go on this trip and have a lifetime of experience.
