Mayah Chava Rosenzweig Mitzvah Project
My name is Mayah Chava Rosenzweig and I am a 6th grader. This summer my family and I went to Israel and visited the ISCD facility for kids with disabilities. I first heard about this wonderful organization from one of the rabbi’s at my school. He knew that I really like sports and that I was hoping to find a place like the ISCD to do some chesed as part of my Bat Mitzvah. He also really likes this organization and after learning about it, visiting the campus, and getting a tour from one of the athletes who benefits from the ISCD, I fell in love with it too.
The ISCD is an organization that helps kids with disabilities by teaching them how to play sports. They do this because it helps them overcome their disabilities and it gives them a great amount of self-confidence and self-fulfillment. It makes them feel like there is nothing wrong with them and that they could do anything as long as they put their mind to it and try hard to achieve their goal. Some of the children who have gone to the ISCD have grown up to become amazing athletes in several different sports, including wheelchair basketball and ping-pong.
Now that you know a little more about what the ISCD does and how amazing it is, I would like to tell you what I am trying to do to help. In order to play on the ISCD’s wheelchair basketball team you need to have a special wheelchair that helps you move faster, holds you more securely, and is customized for your disability. A wheelchair like this is very expensive. I am trying to raise enough money to buy several wheelchairs as well as other sports related equipment. My goal is to raise $10,000. Please help me by donating to this fantastic organization.
Thank you very much!!!
