Israel Trip For Max Engel!

Max was accepted into a summer program in Israel! We could really use your help to send him!

While many of you know that we recently lost our house and both of our jobs, you may not know that we are happy! We are healthy! And we are grateful for the supportive friendships and family we have!  Thank G-d!

Max is 15.5 years old now.  Pictured with his driving permit, he is an old soul, who's talked about going to Israel for many many years.  He is an "A" student at an Orthodox Jewish High School in LA and his day starts at 6:30am and doesn't end until 6:30pm, 6 days a week (including all the travel time).  He is one of the most sensitive boys you'll ever meet.

This summer will be a game-changer for Max.  Not only will he (hopefully) go to Israel, he will also be shadowing a local surgeon to learn what it's like to be a physician. He's got dreams....

Max is on top of the world!  He makes a positive impact on everyone he meets. The dents he makes (please not the car) have lasting ripple effects in people's lives. An investment in Max is golden.....

Thank you so much for your support!!  Please make sure you look at the Reward Levels....they're tasty!
