$100k Match Challenge

Dear friends,

As many of you know, during the last few years I have been involved in a great bi-national Israeli/Palestinian organization called MEET.

This organization takes bright young Israeli and Palestinian kids (always half girls and half boys!) and provides them with an education in the fields of technology, entrepreneurship and leadership development. 

At MEET, students get a great education - provided by MIT, our long-term partner - but at the same time, they also learn what we call Deeper Understanding - our self-developed curriculum which teaches them to be able to listen to and understand the narrative of the other side. They come for the great educational program MEET offers - and learn how coexistence should really be. Not always agreeing with the other side, but always listening, respecting and trying to understand. The way our leaders should be on both sides. 

What I love about MEET - other than its impact of course - is that it recognizes that the language of technology and entrepreneurship crosses borders, nations and opinions and creates a true bridge between different people. It’s tough to believe until you see kids who never spoke to anyone on the other side collaborating after just a few days of spending time together. Real magic! 

Supporting MEET is a continuation of my work investing in bright young people who seek to challenge the status quo and create a better future through business, technology and innovation. I've seen this program take 14-year-old kids with no political awareness and transform them into 17-year-old future leaders who refuse to accept the status quo.

I am excited to announce that from now until December 31, 2017, any gift you make will be matched 2 dollar for each dollar donated, up to $100K. That means that if we reach our $100k target, we actually are bringing $300k to MEET. Triple impact. a great deal! 

Please help me raise the funds to support MEET’s work. I’ve seen the program firsthand, met the students, and I can 100% assure you this one is actually making a difference.

Thank you,
Gigi
