This week, thousands of Israelis were evacuated from their homes as more than 20 separate fires threatened them and their communities. Dozens of homes and businesses have been destroyed so far.
While the material damages have yet to be calculated, and much work will need to be done to restore and rebuild, you can help in a meaningful and tangible way.
Please join the Genesis 123 Foundation and Run for Zion and donate $10 to buy a toy for one of the many children who have been displaced, or even lost all their toys along with their families' homes and possessions.
Our goal is modest, 1000 people to donate $10. But that will make an extraordinary difference. Hopefully we'll exceed this goal and put a smile back on the face of children whose lives have been devastated and who you will make happy as their families rebuild amid the trauma they have suffered.
Funds raised in excess of what the need is to buy and replace toys will be used to buy and plant trees, restoring dozens of acres that have already been damaged.
