BENEFITING: PEACEPLAYERS INTERNATIONAL
EVENT DATE: Apr 28, 2015
Dear Family and Friends,
Children who play together can learn to live together. That’s the idea behind Peace Players International, a nonprofit organization that uses sports to unite children in divided communities all around the world.
For my Mitzvah Project, I am supporting Peace Players efforts in Israel, where Israeli and Palestinian children play basketball together. As teammates, they learn to work together and become friends. I believe in the power of teamwork and know from my own personal experience that playing team sports unites and helps kids learn about a lot more than sports.
Instead of gifts, please consider supporting Peace Players work in Israel. I think that Peace Players is already making a difference and hope that this fundraiser will bring together Arab and Jewish kids so they can play together and learn to live in peace.
Thank you so much!
