COVID-19 may be here, but pediatric illness has not gone away. That’s why my sister and I have decided, as our bnot mitzvah project ,to join Team Lifeline and run in support of Chai Lifeline, the Jewish community’s largest children’s health support network. Every dollar I raise and every mile I run will help Chai Lifeline continue to be there for families confronting illness and loss during these difficult times.
Having grown up attending Team Lifeline events to cheer my mother and brothers, I can tell you what an amazing feeling it is to support Chai Lifeline. Through the years, I have been fortunate to meet so many families that have benefited from Chai Lifeline.
Chai Lifeline offers more than two-dozen year-round programs and services, including professional case management and counseling, transportation to medical appointments, meals delivered to hospitals and homes, emergency financial assistance, crisis intervention, insurance and medical advocacy, i-Shine afterschool programming, family events and retreats, Camp Simcha and Camp Simcha Special medically-supervised summer programs, and so much more. All programs are provided free of charge thanks to generous supporters and friends like you.
We cannot allow this pandemic to stop us from helping children with life threatening and lifelong illnesses. These children are counting on us, and I hope I can count on you too. Please help me reach my goal and raise as much money as possible for these incredible kids. Your tax-deductible contribution will have a direct impact on lives dimmed by pediatric illness when they need it most. Together, we can make a difference to Chai Lifeline’s more than 5,900 children and families around the globe.
Thank you for your support!
Best - Tessa
