Mason Greenberg's Mitzvah Project
Hi. My name is Mason Greenberg. I am in 7th grade and my Bar Mitzvah is on March 26, 2022. I love to play sports, including basketball, baseball, and soccer. I recognize the importance of helping others and wanted to combine that with my love of sports for my mitzvah project. I have decided to raise money for the Israel Sport Center for the Disabled (ISCD). This organization allows kids with all types of disabilities or injuries from illness, terrorist attacks, birth defects, or other circumstances to come together to play sports and rehabilitate themselves both mentally and physically. Being active in sports has been such an important part of my life and I am grateful to have so many opportunities to participate. Unfortunately, there are many people who do not have the same opportunities as I do, or the necessary equipment to do so. I have never visited the Center, but I've seen many inspirational pictures and videos of people from the ISCD playing sports like everyone else. Knowing that the ISCD helps bring kids together is so important to me because being on various teams has helped me learn how to be a better person and teammate.
To raise money for the ISCD, the Ramsey 7th grade travel basketball teams will shoot free throws during a joint practice on Wednesday, February 23, with a target overall goal of 500 free throws made. I am asking for donations in one of two ways: a flat amount of your choosing or a pledge per free throw made. All donations will be given to the ISCD to purchase new wheelchairs for the disabled. It makes me happy to help this great foundation and I hope everyone will help out too! The ISCD is not just about sports, it is about helping people with special needs rebuild their lives. It gives them something to be excited about and helps with their rehabilitation. This organization is truly amazing and it would mean a lot to them and me if you could support my mitzvah project and please make a donation.
