Helping the Homeless - Jacob’s Mitzvah Project

$2,464 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 25 people in 4 months
Hi, this Spring I am having my Bar Mitzvah. For my mitzvah project, I will be addressing something that I and many others hate to see, which is homelessness.  I am setting up this GoFundMe campaign to raise money for a local charitable organization called Blessing Bag Brigade, which collects and distributes toiletries and other supplies to the homeless.  With the funds that I raise, I will purchase their requested items and deliver them to Blessing Bag Brigade .  I will also be volunteering for some of their sorting and distribution events. Feel free to check out their website and see some of the great work they do. 

Here are some examples of how your donations can help:

For only $20, you could give 10 people the most requested item in homeless shelters, socks!

For only $17, you could give 48 people a healthy breakfast bar!

For only $50, you could give a whopping 288 people shampoo and conditioner!

These are just a few of the many ways your donation can help those in need. With the funds that I collect, I will first research to find where I will get the most value, then I will purchase the requested items and bring them to the Blessing Bag Brigade. I will then personally help bag and deliver these items to those in need.

Thank you for your time and I hope you consider donating to those less fortunate.  Any size donation will help!

With your generous donations, I was able to purchase a lot of items for BBB, including 1000 toothbrushes, 600 pairs of socks, 540 deodorant sticks, 800 bottles of shampoo, and more. I will continue to buy until we run out of money. Here are some pictures of the supplies and me helping deliver the supplies to the head of BBB. Next week, I will be delivering some remaining items and will be volunteering in a packaging event where I help make kits for the homeless. Thank you all for the support!

Hey guys, I just wanted to thank all of you for your generous donations. We have surpassed our goal and are still receiving more donations! I am overwhelmed by everyone's support and help throughout this project. We have been in contact with the head of Blessing Bag Brigade, and we have set up withdrawals and will soon start ordering requested products. I would appreciate if you or any of your friends are planning to donate, that you do so before next week when I cut off donations. I will update you again when I start ordering products. Thank you!
