If you can't afford it and they won't give you a tuition break then I'd think it should.

Unfortunately there's a lot more frum families living in E"Y then in our communities, aside for lots of the families sitting and learning, which causes more debt and needs outside support to be able to provide the basics for the families, and now that's without any injuries or C"V from terror attacks(whether bombs, rockets,stabbings!)..B"h we don't have to know about it personally and should be able to be self supported and be able to help others until 120 gizunt and stark!
 And beh be zoche to see mishiach bimiherah biyanenu, and we shouldn't have to know from all these zoros in klal yisroel.

I personally know this situation.

The Husband / father is self-employed very ehrlicher Yid, and obviously in the last 3 months as his wife's situation deteriorated faster than even the doctors thought when she was given the diagnosis, was barely able to work. He now needs to be there for his kids (and hopefully manages somehow to get his business to survive).

Last night, when my wife walked out of the shiva house, she was in tears. She told me that the little 4 year old girl is sure that her mommy is coming back after the shiva is over.

I also checked out the campaign, and can vouch for the fact that 100% of funds collected will go to the family. No one is taking any cut, commission or management fee.

I gave, and asked anyone I know from around the world to give. Please give, and encourage anyone you know to give.

If you need additional details you can PM me.

I personally also know this situation very well - We should only know of simchas!

If you can, please whatsapp to friends, family & all groups your part of and lets show the power of social media!

We can do it!! The goal should really be $500,000 or more. Hopefully we can raise the $320,000 and then up the goal!

That is greatly appreciated.

The widower was my tenant when he started his business. He is an extremely honest and smart CPA, one of the very few that I am actually comfortable referring business to.

If anyone knows someone starting a business, or that has a business that is going to the next level, and is looking for a very good CPA, please PM me and I will give you his contact info. I have a few business people that I referred to him, that are extremely satisfied.

One of the greatest levels of צדקה (not to take away from anything else, including the current campaign) is to help someone with providing him work. If you're looking for a CPA for a business, I encourage you to contact me in order to get this person's contact info, not because of the צדקה aspect, but because I believe you will be extremely happy with him.

I fully agree.

When I made the phone calls to verify that the money being raised is indeed going 100% to the family, I actually also criticized the number of $320,000 as being too low given the circumstances. I was given an explanation as to why they low-balled it, which I cannot argue with, but I think we here at ddf/dansdeals should all get together and make sure they actually raise $500,000 or more!

Adding to the donation that it's in honor of DDF/Dansdeals can only do good for everyone, as it will encourage more giving, and will reflect positively on this community.

For those that are not clicking on link here's the info that would want to make you click & help;
On Wednesday evening last week, Mrs. Devorah Faiga Eidelman returned her pure Neshama to her creator at the young age of 48.

She left 9 broken orphans the youngest a tender 4 year old!.
For three months they prayed for a miracle it is now up to us to alleviate their burden.

Think of them!!

The small children anticipating their mother's return home, the Yeshiva bochurim who were not even granted the time to part from their mother, the older girls anxiously awaiting a shidduch.

Your generous assistance can lift the dark clouds a little bit.

The family can really use your help!

https://thechesedfund.com/cause/friedns-for-dvorahle (https://thechesedfund.com/cause/friedns-for-dvorahle)

Thanks to all those that contributed already. If you can only give $18, $36 please donate and then reach out to ppl that can give more (i.e family, friends) and have them donate as well.

If only 500 of us take on $360 or 1000 of us take on $180 (either personally if able, or getting others to give through us) we can raise $180,000 within 24 hrs or less!

... but I think we here at ddf/dansdeals should all get together and make sure they actually raise $500,000 or more!

Adding to the donation that it's in honor of DDF/Dansdeals can only do good for everyone, as it will encourage more giving, and will reflect positively on this community.

I can't stress the importance of one-on-one conversations, be it face to face, or personally written messages.
It's proven %100 to be fruitful!

Title: Re: Tzadaka Master Thread
Post by: ExGingi on July 05, 2017, 03:41:55 PM

This doesn't explain what the funds will be used for.
Let's make the situation clear:

There's one breadwinner, who's self-employed and struggling to support his family. For the past 3 months while his wife was battling a terrible disease, he was there for her and for his family, not being able to put too much time into work.

There are young kids in the family, and no mother (who also took care of everything that needed to be done at home, besides regular mother/wife duties) around. They will need to hire extra help to make up for everything the deceased mother would do, to help the young kids with counseling and anything else they might need to alleviate the situation, and the father will need to spend more time at home, and less time at work, reducing his earning capacity.

Do we need any further explanations? Everyone involved in this is doing it to help the family, no-one involved will take a penny. It's all in order to help keep the family from collapsing financially.

P.S.
I am trying to arrange for someone to actually go and help out the widower's business a few hours per week. If anyone is interested in joining me in this, please PM.

I was thinking it would be a good idea to create a(nother) tzedaka website.
The point of it would be to be a central platform for all the "big" organizations that people like donating to.
Advantages:
It would be commission free- so 100% of the money will go to tzedaka (so people don't need to worry that 49% is going to some fundraiser).
It would have a "sign in" option- which would keep track of the total money you donated to all campaigns- to help with you maaser calculations,
It would consolidate all your tzedaka giving (even the small amounts at a time) into one tax deductible receipt.
(It can also keep track of all moneys raised for each campaign- and make special incentives at certain milestones...)

Does anyone think this would be a good idea?
And would anyone with computer skills be willing to "donate" time to help create this?

How would commission free be sustainable? Sounds like the people who think there's no overhead for eCommerce because they don't have to pay rent.

I will ask questions I feel are relevant

It wasn't explained well enough. $320k is a lot of money and can support a family for a decent amount of time (even in these terrible circumstances). I wanted to know why such a large amount is needed.

I wasn't going to bring it up but since you put at my feet... I find the idea of attributing donations to DDF extremely crass. You shouldn't make a show of charity. Charity should be given simply or better yet anonymously.

Either through donations directly to the website (like charity.com does), or through a minimum "commission"- but that's not really commission, its 100% tzedaka - the same way the organizations need to pay an accountant and secretary etc - there are many expenses besides for the money they give out, but it's not the same as a "fundraiser" taking a 49% paycheck ...

Are you married?

Do you have 9 children with the youngest having recently turned 4?

Do you have a mortgage to pay?

How about tuition, seminary and everything that goes along with that?

Are you a sole breadwinner who is self-employed and needed to spend the last 3-4 months dealing with spouse's illness, while trying to keep the household operating in a normal way?

I mostly give anonymously. However it מצוה לפרסם עושי מצוה, and the main (or sole) reason for any attribution or publicity is in order to encourage more giving, it has been proven to work!

I mostly give anonymously. However it מצוה לפרסם עושי מצוה, and the main (or sole) reason for any attribution or publicity is in order to encourage more giving, it has been proven to work!

Chevra, we can do it! Give an inspire others to give!

It wasn't explained well enough. $320k is a lot of money
Is it?

Life insurance companies don't necessarily think so. They don't want to insure people for more than they are worth alive, so they set financial underwriting guidelines. GIYF.

See a few examples below, and pay attention to how they look at non-working spouse:

https://www.sunnet.sunlife.com/files/advisor/english/PDF/810-3877.pdf
http://static1.squarespace.com/static/52a53e3de4b0d9959707caee/t/568c0010c21b86066aedf286/1452015632089/financial-underwriting-guidelines.pdf
http://www.resourcebrokerage.com/pdfs/la/underwriting-guides-2015/special/Non-Working-Spouse-Oct2014.pdf
http://www.genre.com/knowledge/publications/bulletinlh1412-en.html


It seems to be that at the surviving husband's age, the guideline is about 15x income, and for a non-working spouse companies vary between 50% to 100% of working spouse insurable amount. This is what they consider reasonable, without taking into account our lifestyle, which could easily justify larger amounts.

Most importantly, I will refer you to this (http://mg.alhatorah.org/Vayikra/25.35). Pay special attention to Rashi!!!!

I might be interested in putting together something like this, but it would have to be able to somehow tie into The Chesed Fund since at the moment it's the leading website for Online Charity
You have any contacts at thechesedfund ?

I was thinking it would be a good idea to create a(nother) tzedaka website.
The point of it would be to be a central platform for all the "big" organizations that people like donating to.
Advantages:
It would be commission free- so 100% of the money will go to tzedaka (so people don't need to worry that 49% is going to some fundraiser).
It would have a "sign in" option- which would keep track of the total money you donated to all campaigns- to help with you maaser calculations,
It would consolidate all your tzedaka giving (even the small amounts at a time) into one tax deductible receipt.
(It can also keep track of all moneys raised for each campaign- and make special incentives at certain milestones...)

Does anyone think this would be a good idea?
And would anyone with computer skills be willing to "donate" time to help create this?

This might be a good idea. I personally am a big believer in giving tzedaka mostly to Yeshivos and other causes focused on Jewish education.

The concept you are talking about can be accomplished by using a Donor Advised Fund (you hear them advertised around tax season all the time), though you probably wouldn't be able to do CC donations.

There's a company called OJC Fund, ( www.ojcfund.org ) they do charge you for their service but it's very convenient to keep track on everything.
Not sure if your looking for something like that.

right, I remember seeing st like this.
I thought Yeshivas used to offer this, and take a 10% cut for the yeshivah... but then I haven't seen it in a while...

Looks like this is a Donor Advised Fund, with the major difference between this one and other public ones being that it seems to be run by Heimishe people.

With a Donor Advised Fund, when you deposit money, you get a deduction, you make "recommendations" for distributions (which the fund is required to make as a percentage of the assets on an annual basis IINM) up to the amount you deposited. In the meantime, the money that you deposited is invested until distributed. Anything left over after your 120, goes to the fund to distribute to the charity of their choice. They also charge a small fee going in http://www.ojcfund.org/fees.html.

Please encourage anyone you know to to the same (no need to mention my DDF name. I wasn't the first to post about this worthy cause here. I think it's a good idea if anyone that gives because they saw it here would write in honor of DDF or in honor of Dansdeals, so we can show the power and friendship of this community).

I personally reached out to friends, family & acquaintances about this campaign (cost me a little bit of my time), and saw the immediate results - they donated!

Please, I can't stress the importance, help out this family in dire need, a lot more money is needed to be raised and this campaign is the only opportunity to help them financially!!

Have been doing the same. Besides for sending a broadcast whatsapp (which TheChesedFund made easy for me after I completed my contribution), I followed up with personal calls, approaching friends in Shul and on the street, and following up with them to make sure it happens.

I will admit that this campaign created a new level of awareness for me! As I mentioned somewhere around here, I personally favor giving to Yeshivos or anything else that has to do with Jewish Education, and always told myself that for most people its not like that, and a lot more people come together to help in case of a tragedy like this.

This specific story, with whatever details I happen to know, has changed my perspective. While I might not give as much time, money and effort as I have in this case, I don't think that after this one I will be able to easily ignore such campaigns. I might give a small amount (unfortunately there are so many such causes) or a larger one, depending on my ability at the time and how I feel. But I will always try to do it bl"n בסבר פנים יפות, and reject any thoughts of "this is not really needed" or anything of the like.

I heard the following story during the Shiva:

A young woman passed away in Montreal, it was a big tragedy, and there was a huge crowd at the levaya (I don't know if this followed an illness or anything else, didn't get those details).

At the Levaya, the young woman's father came to the mike, tried a few times to start speaking, but had great difficulty uttering even one word. He finally managed to muster some emotional strength and said the following: "I am extremely touched by how the entire community came together now. I wish we wouldn't need a tragedy in order to come to each other's help" and then he stepped down.

PLEASE, let's be kind to each other, let's not wait for tragedies to happen. Let's try to always help, and try to be aware as to where it is needed, with the attitude Rashbi had (שבת לג סע"ב).

Post by: menachem on July 13, 2017, 04:49:14 PM
I fully agree.

When I made the phone calls to verify that the money being raised is indeed going 100% to the family, I actually also criticized the number of $320,000 as being too low given the circumstances. I was given an explanation as to why they low-balled it, which I cannot argue with, but I think we here at ddf/dansdeals should all get together and make sure they actually raise $500,000 or more!

Adding to the donation that it's in honor of DDF/Dansdeals can only do good for everyone, as it will encourage more giving, and will reflect positively on this community.

Check out the link >>> https://thechesedfund.com/cause/friedns-for-dvorahle (https://thechesedfund.com/cause/friedns-for-dvorahle)

You'll notice that a few thousand came in today ~ I got someone to reach out to others and they donated ~ over $2,000 collectively!

Chevra, the least we can do for the 9 orphans is to help them with financial stability, so their father can care for them and not be busy with financial woes!!

Let's do this TOGETHER! It's a great Mitzvah and will help out the family tremendously!!

Thanks to @menachem for getting a very special yungerman to offer matching funds.

Please continue to give at https://thechesedfund.com/cause/friedns-for-dvorahle and spread the word. There's someone matching dollar for dollar!

Don't pay attention to the goal that was set. Keep in mind that the widower was working 12-14 hours a day (not because he's a workaholic, but out of necessity) before his wife got sick. He has young kids at home. The right thing to do would be to enable him to cut down his work hours very significantly, so he can be there for his kids. Every dollar help, and a lot is needed.

ExGingi told me about this campaign and explained the cause to me.
Right away it really hit home and I felt compelled to give way more than I normally would.
I usually don't like giving to these online campaigns because most of them are the same organizations running dramatic stories... This isn't being run by a marketing team, it's the real deal.
Now that someone is matching every dollar I plan on giving again and telling people about this.
Whoever is spearheading this is a tzadik.

They gave me a $3000 check towards an outstanding balance, that I just picked up and delivered.

It's also pidyon shvuyim for the head of the organization, who is facing jail time and if they come up with the money he has a big chance of being let off the hook. Is it ok to post details?

PM this guy
I approached someone to contribute to the Eidelman campaign and they insisted in paying directly towards a bill of the family, rather than through the campaign.
They gave me a $3000 check towards an outstanding balance, that I just picked up and delivered.

If you would like to do the same, PM me and i'll give you the info of where to write the check or if it's a large amount, I'll pick it up personally.

Today is the Shloshim, lets show some DDF power >>>> https://thechesedfund.com/cause/friedns-for-dvorahle - 100% of your donation will go to the family!!

If you would still like verification on this campaign, feel free to PM me and I'll provide it.
Or this guy
Thanks to @menachem for getting a very special yungerman to offer matching funds.

Please continue to give at https://thechesedfund.com/cause/friedns-for-dvorahle and spread the word. There's someone matching dollar for dollar!

Don't pay attention to the goal that was set. Keep in mind that the widower was working 12-14 hours a day (not because he's a workaholic, but out of necessity) before his wife got sick. He has young kids at home. The right thing to do would be to enable him to cut down his work hours very significantly, so he can be there for his kids. Every dollar help, and a lot is needed.
Or you can take my word for it. I know this situation is as legit as they get.

Sometimes people don't realize what happens when a non-working spouse dies prematurely.

Her husband was working long hours to support his family, but the kids need a parent at home. He just cannot spend all those hours at work any more! Let's all get together, so that the kids can have a father at home, without totally destroying his livelihood. Let's enable him to cut his work hours by 50% so his kids can at least have a father, now that they lost their mother!

$48k is still needed at this time to make sure the matching money comes through! Campaign ends Sunday, Please help either personally or by getting others to donate!

*This matching campaign is in connection with the previous fundraiser, as many funds are still desperately needed for the family and 100% of your donation goes to the family and is tax-deductible.*

This is an urgent plea to you for help.

The only responsible way we can begin the coming school year is to ensure that our rebbies, teachers, and staff are paid up to date, they depend on this to put food on their tables.

After tuition and government funding the school will run at a deficit of $850,000 this coming year, not including approximately $300,000 of debt that is being carried over from previous years.

We have secured $250,000 in matching funds that were pledged on the condition that we raise an additional $270,000 from our community before school opens.

EVERY DOLLAR RAISED WILL BE MATCHED BY LOCAL DONORS

Please help us reach our goal by donating here:

Wow. Unfortunately this thread is too active...

I don't like ever asking anyone for help, but my very close family member passed away of cancer 3 years ago, and sadly left a lot of debt. He left behind an Almanah and 4 young Yesoimim.

He was very young and in his prime, and ran a successful business (If you ate at a place called Heimeshe Essen in Rechavia when you were in Israel, you ate at his place). Unfortunately when he got sick, the machlah struck very fast and he was hospitalized right away and passed away less than a year after the discovery. In that time, he couldn't run the business, and he accumulated a ton for debt to the suppliers, employees, and landlord.

There has been a tzaddik of a lawyer who has been fighting in court pro bono the past 3 years to allow the family to keep the house. He got the judge to arrange a settlement of around 750,000 Shekel to be paid within 30 days.

The family has been contributing what they could for these years, but it isn't enough.

To keep their house, the Almanah and Yesoimim have 30 days to raise this sum. Please try your best to take part of being mechazek an Almanah and 4 Yesoimim. In this zchus, may you be blessed with all that you need, בני, חיי, ומזוני.

Your donation will be gratefully received.

Please give generously!

http://charidy.com/arele/big (http://charidy.com/arele/big)

Eleven months ago, Rabbi Aron “Arele” Oster went into Septic Shock, sending his family and the entire Klal Yisroel into shock of our own.

Through endless miracles, he has beat the odds, regaining consciousness, reconnecting with his wife and children and starting on the long road to his new life.

This Thursday, Arele will undergo a lifesaving surgery to amputate both arms below his elbows and both legs below his knees.

Let’s be here, ready to take that first giant step with him toward full recovery.

On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, help us raise 1 million dollars to:

 • Custom-build four temporary prosthetics
 • Ensure a full year of vital rehab
 • Provide a basic livelihood for his wife and their two children
   THEN, ONCE HIS BODY IS STRONG ENOUGH:

 • Give Arele full mobility and independence, with sophisticated bionic limbs controlled by his own brain! ($200-250k each x 4)


Your tefillos help! Please continue to daven for אהרן בן חנה

Known for his meticulous יראת שמים, Rabbi Aron Oster, 34, is a much-loved Magid Shiur in the Mesivta in Monsey and an admired teacher of Torah and Chassidus in neighborhood Shtieblach.

He is also a humble אוהב ישראל, devoting hours every Friday to visit Yidden who are not yet observant and learning with numerous chavrusos who are new to Yiddishkeit.

Arele is a soft-spoken husband, a doting father and a talented Baal Tefilla.

*UPDATE*

We set out to give Arele sophisticated bionic limbs to take that first giant step with him toward recovery and independence.

You responded by giving him YOUR FULL HEART!

WITH YOUR OUTPOURING OF LOVE AND SUPPORT, and your continued eagerness to stand with Arele, WE’VE UPDATED THE GOAL TO $2 MILLION, to pave the road ahead by:

•   Taking him through the first 18 months of intensive treatment, therapy and rehab

•   Retrofitting his home for his new mobility needs

•   Supporting his wife and children along the way

Truly, there aren’t words that describe the feeling of oneness, community, empathy and kindness that Arele’s story has brought out.

Just got this email from myzmanim. Posting it here because it's a funny email and also because I use their site all the time and I assume others here do too, so I feel like I should give a little and also spread their request for donations here. Donate here (https://www.myzmanim.com/donate.aspx?comment=Donation&ld=eml). Here's the email:

Hey Yehudaa,

It’s me, Shekiah.

Y’know, your pal who’s been around since the 6 days of creation. (Day #4, if you must know.)

And I want to set the record straight: I. AM. NOT. THE. BAD. GUY.

Cause no matter what I do, you people PANIC when I come:

The birds are chirping.The sun is shining through the trees.The Jews are scrambling around like Wall Street floor brokers, jumping in and out of showers and stuffing hair irons into drawers and setting the Shabbos clock that you-should-have-set-Thursday-night.

Do you have something against me?

See, in Jewish novels, no one ever rides off into the sunset. Instead, Husband sees me coming and says “Honey, I gotta go to Mincha.”

It’s like I’m some kind of villain in your books.

The only thing that keeps me going (despite millennia of abuse) are my loyal fans — the folks at MyZmanim.

These guys like me so much they…

·Insist on knowing exactly when I’m sneakin’ around the bend.

·Follow me wherever I am, anywhere the world.

That makes me feel all fuzzy and warm inside (approximately 15,000,000 °C, if you must know).

And that’s even gooder news for you!

Cuz when they keep tabs on me (and dozens of my timely colleagues like Nightfall and Mi’sheyakir) YOU can observe mitzvos in their proper time.

See, MyZmanim exists for only two reasons:

1. To boost my self-esteem.

2. To help you keep really important mitzvos like tefillah, Shabbos and taharas hamishpacha.

you know you can count on them—always.

Yehudaa, can they count on you to help them keep going?

Yehudaa, MyZmanim exists thanks to users like you.

Please make your donation (https://www.myzmanim.com/donate.aspx?comment=Donation&ld=eml) so MyZmanim can continue benefiting you and all of Klal Yisrael.

Whatever you give will be deeply appreciated.

Yehudaa, if you appreciate MyZmanim, please donate now (https://www.myzmanim.com/donate.aspx?comment=Donation&ld=eml).

Here’s to a flaming-sky, orange-streaked, mutually respectful relationship moving forward, one sha’ah zmanis at a time.

Your elusive friend,

Shekiah

family, with ka"h eight young children, has recently moved back from Eretz Yisroel. They have just settled down here, when this tragedy struck them. B'chasdei Hashem they are safe. But all their clothing and most of their belongings have gone up in smoke!

With weeks to Yom Tov, they have been left with nothing!

Hi all, a family member of mine has a daughter with very bad Eczema on her face and all over her body. She’s starting school soon and there’s a specialist who would be able to help but they can’t afford the cost. It comes out to under $1000. My goal is to raise $800 to help them with this.  Thank you and Tizku L’mitzvos!

As Klal Yisroel is suffering from the effects and aftereffects of the virus, one thing extremely necessary, is to prepare to restart the Kol Torah. This summer we are hoping to be able to restart Yeshiva of Staten Island at its’ upstate location by the parameters set by health experts. Camp YSI has always been a yeshiva away from home where the learning continues at the highest levels, befitting the place where Rav Moshe Feinstein Zt"l would lead klal Yisroel during the summer months.

This past year Hagaon Harav Reuven Shlit”a, decided that it was time to rebuild the camp Bais Medrash. The old building was taken down immediately after the summer, and the work was moving right along until the virus started. After that, the work was interrupted, and equally important, we had to stop meeting people for financial help. Right now the shell is up, but the inside is empty and unusable. In order to get this Makom Torah to be able to get up and running as quickly as possible we need your help. Please help restart the Kol Torah in America by making this new building a reality.

https://go.thechesedfund.com/l1Ny5j/camp-yeshiva-of-staten-island

Dedication opportunities are available.

Please contact: (917)946-2974 campyeshivaofsi@gmail.com for dedication donations and/or monthly donation signup via ACH.

Due to Covid, the yeshiva relocated the past 2 months to Lakewood. They are hoping to move back to Eretz Yisroel next zman but there will be lots of additional expenses of renting out a campus to meet the Israeli health ministry guidelines. (In addition to having to pay their regular rent throughout this ongoing pandemic)
Any Donation is greatly appreciated!
