BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF OFANIM INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2010
I’m reaching out to see if you can help me raise money for a cause I’ve been getting involved with, Ofanim. I have gotten to know both the organization and its founder and have been touched profoundly for the important work that they’re doing. I am specifically writing you guys is because you know me well and know that I would only involve myself with a project that I strongly believe in. In brief, (b/c the video I’ve attached below does a far better job showcasing Ofanim’s efforts and positive influence), this fairly young organization has found a way to efficiently and creatively give poor Israeli children access to a modern education.
How does this work? Ofanim retrofits large buses into high-tech classrooms and labs. These buses then travel to some of Israel’s most impoverished and run-down communities where grad school students spend time with the kids after school introducing them to forms of education otherwise unavailable.
