Welcome to team Am Yisrael Chai! I have been inspired and motivated by the overwhelming amount of support for Israel that I have seen this summer. My goal with this fundraiser is to provide people with an opportunity to directly contribute to the health and safety of our soldiers and civilians in Israel.
Magen David Adom is Israel's ambulance, blood-services, and disaster-relief organization, serving and emergency medical first responders for the state's 8 million people (including civilians in The West Bank). MDA is the only organization mandated by the Israeli government to serve in this role, but it's not a government agency, so it relies on people like us for funding. Through your gift, you're saving thousands of Israeli lives, including IDF soldiers and innocent civilians.
In such violent times in Israel, it is our responsibility to help contribute and support the people of Israel. If you would like to participate in the effort, you can either click register at the top of the page to join team Am Yisrael Chai and begin raising money on your own personal page, or choose a team member and help them reach their individual goal (view team roster to the left). In addition, please take a couple minutes to share this page through email, facebook, twitter, etc. to help spread the word.
Thank you for taking the time to check out our team page. Feel free to learn more about American Friends of Magen David Adom at http://www.afmda.org/. Any help that you are willing to provide is appreciated greatly. I look forward to tracking our progress towards $3,000 in an effort to protect our loved ones in Israel.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
Thank you - Alex Rasky
