My Bar Mitzvah project is to raise money and awareness for PeacePlayers International, a non-profit organization that uses the game of basketball to bring together children from different religious, racial, and cultural backgrounds. The idea is that children who play together can learn to live together and be friends. For example, in Israel, PPI unites and educates Jewish and Arab young people. In South Africa, PPI promotes peace among black and white children. I have been selling baseball hats and stress balls locally, but would also greatly appreciate any other donations from family and friends so I can reach my goal and help these communities in conflict.
