Ariella & I are going to ride through all 5 Boros on Sunday, May 6th to support Team Blue Card.
Team Blue Card is the Sports Endurance Team that raises funds for The Blue Card, a national non-profit organization whose sole purpose is providing direct and ongoing financial assistance to needy Holocaust survivors in the United States. The Blue Card is unique in that it provides long-term ongoing support and emergency grants to Holocaust survivors who are falling into increasingly poorer health as their need for financial assistance grows. Help is given in the form of cash grants issued directly to the client or to the provider of vital goods and services. These grants are made for basic human needs like food, health care, dental care, crisis and ongoing psychotherapy, health insurance, prescription drugs, personal emergency response system, housing, transportation, and various one-time emergencies. Being on Team Blue Card gives one the opportunity to make a real difference in not only one’s own life but also the lives of many local Holocaust survivors living.
