Ben Goldin's Fundraiser:

Ben's Bar Mitzvah's Vision for a Better Future

THE STORY:

When I was a kid a rooster almost pecked my eye out. I was very lucky the rooster’s aim wasn’t very good and his beak missed my eye by an eighth of an inch. Every now and again I think of how horrible it would have been if the rooster hadn’t missed and I had lost an eye and could not see out of that eye. Unfortunately, others are not always as lucky as me. For my Bar Mitzvah Project I have decided to do everything I can to help those people (particularly in third world countries) who have lost their eyesight to be able to see again. I found a very good way to do this. By raising funds for a team of surgeons who in association with the Explorers Club of New York will be going to Nepal to operate on hundreds of people in a short period of time to help them see again. It’s absolutely amazing to see how in a period of one or two days after being operated on by these surgeons, the joy and happiness these people show when they can see again after not being able to see for years. Please join me in my project by donating on behalf of my Bar Mitzvah to the team that will be leaving fall of this year on this worthwhile mission. $25 provides a single eye cataract surgery and intra-ocular lens implant $100 provides prescription eyeglasses for ten patients in need $1000 provides a full-day outreach clinic for remote villagers, including eyeglasses and surgeries. Please spend the five minutes to watch the video on the website so you know your contribution is going to a very worthwhile cause: http://dooleyintermed.org/gift-of-sight/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4l8Meu_JrzI www.dooleyintermed.org It’s truly fantastic to see the reactions of people being able to see again. Any amount you can contribute would be a mitzvah. Thank you so much Ben Goldin Ps. :) Mom & Dad have said they will match half of however much I raise to my Bar Mitzvah College Fund :)
