THE STORY:

Dear Friends,


Throughout my childhood I learned about the horrors of the Holocaust and I could never comprehend how such a tragedy could occur - the injustices human beings could do to one another. Every survivor I have met has told a powerful story, however one touched me in particular. I had the honor of meeting a survivor by the name of Martin Greenfield who lost everything in the Holocaust, his family, friends, and freedom. In my conversation with him the concepts of perseverance and growth were very strong points.  


It's hard to imagine what Holocaust survivors like Greenfield have been through, harder to believe that they lived through it. Not all have had the success that he achieved in his life. In an effort to help the Holocaust survivors that are living in severe poverty I have committed to fundraising $1,000 for The Blue Card. Established in 1934 Germany and re-organized in the United States in 1939, The Blue Card (www.bluecardfund.org) is the only charity in the U.S. focusing exclusively on aiding about 2,900 destitute Holocaust survivors, from among the 75,000 to 80,000 Holocaust survivors still alive in the United States, one third of whom live at or near the official poverty level. Grants and endowments cover The Blue Card’s modest administrative expenses, allowing 100% of donations to go directly to aiding its survival clientele, earning it Charity Navigator’s and other evaluators’ highest ratings.


I have been training diligently to run in my first marathon in New York City (http://www.tcsnycmarathon.org/), and I hope you can help me in supporting this cause. There is nothing that we can do to undo the injustices that 6 million Jews went through during the Holocaust but even the smallest donation would make a difference in helping the individuals who have experienced the unfathomable. 


Please join me in helping support Holocaust survivors in need by making a donation to my page:

Your friendship and support mean a lot to me.


Warm Regards, 


Levi Rabayev
