Beth Freeman | Help The Jeff Astor Foundation Save Lives in Israel

Dear Friends & Family,

July 22, 2016 marks the 25th year since Jeff died in         a plane crash on his way to study at Brandeis Camp Institute (BCI).  To mark the 25th year, we are starting a campaign to raise funds to purchase a new Magen David Adom (MDA) vehicle to save lives in Israel and honor Jeff’s memory. The first $25,000 in donations will be matched by our foundation.

Magen David Adom is Israel’s ambulance, blood-services, and disaster-relief organization. Today, as Israel experiences near-daily terrorist attacks, we are proud to support MDA and its fearless EMTs and paramedics who are first on the scene everywhere in Israel.

The Jeff Astor Foundation was established in 1991, in Jeff's memory, to donate to charitable organizations we believe would be important to him.  Each year we donate the earnings to various organizations and have donated over $500,000 since its inception.

We hope that you will be generous in your support of our campaign.

Please click on the link below to donate directly to Magen David Adom.

If you cannot contribute at this time, please share this campaign with your friends. We appreciate your generosity and support.  

Thank you very much!
