My name is Isabella, most people call me “Izzy”. I am a 7th grader in New Jersey. My passion is soccer. It is an amazing sport! I have been playing soccer since I was in 1st grade. Currently, I am playing for two soccer clubs and honestly can’t get enough of playing. It is hard for me to imagine life without soccer or what life would look like if I couldn’t play soccer.
When I started thinking of what I wanted to do as my mitzvah project, I knew I wanted to do something sports related. My mom and I were doing research regarding different organizations that I could fundraise and donate money to, and where kids would benefit from my donation. I came across the Israel ParaSport Center organization and immediately thought how perfect it would be to support such a wonderful organization. Knowing that I could help a child with physical disabilities enjoy sports made me very happy.
For my Bat Mitzvah project, I am raising awareness and money for the Israel ParaSport Center. In the spring, I am going to run soccer training for children. All money raised will be donated to this organization. My goal is to raise $2,500 to provide a child’s tuition in the Children’s Program for one year. Please help me achieve this goal!
