Re: Tzadaka Master Thread
I'm glad I found this thread and didn't start another one and get it over the head :-[

I know the family personally and they can use much more then the amount being raised!

"Where is Mommy? "Asks 4 year old Shusha, a spark of glimmer in her eyes.
"You said she is coming home today."
"She is not coming home today"
"But you said the same thing yesterday"

Three months of total chaos..

If you are reading this please DON'T stop, click on the link and continue. Every donation is needed & will HELP the family!
Thank you, It is much appreciated!

I know the family and I donated. I encourage you all to donate with an open heart.

Re: Tzadaka Master Thread
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!
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.


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!!

Thank you to all those that have already donated! ממנו יראו וכן יעשו!!
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).

Re: Tzadaka Master Thread Guys,

I don't know this family personally. I don't even know anyone in crown heights.
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.

Let's keep up the DDF effect, it's not every day that we have this opportunity to really make a difference.
