It takes a truly important cause for me to do something like running a marathon. Between training, fundraising and planning, the organization needs to be incredibly special. And that's what Shalva is to me. For children with disabilities and their families, life can often be difficult, disheartening and frightening.
This is where Shalva comes in. In this life-changing organization in Israel, every child becomes a cherished member of the Shalva family. Kids with disabilities become, "just kids," with friends and laughter, fun activities and beautiful memories. Children from birth through 21 years of age are serviced by the most professional, caring and compassionate staff and not only are the children taken care of and treasured, their family members are also incorporated into the Shalva family with warmth and genuine love.
I have had the pleasure of reading about Shalva and I can tell you firsthand what an extraordinary place it is. So passionately do I feel about Shalva, that I've decided to run the Jerusalem Marathon on March 15th, 201910K. I plan to raise $2,950.00 and I hope you will help me reach this goal by making a donation – anything helps!
Your support is vital to my success in this race, and will make such a huge difference in the lives of these wonderful children. All donations are 100% tax-deductible and the Team Shalva website makes donations quick, easy, and secure. Please visit my personal page at http://www.run4shalva.org/my/yaelweber today.
Please feel free to share this email with anyone who you think might be interested in giving to this awesome organization.
On behalf of the children and families of Shalva, thank you for your time and contribution.
