Anyone in Israel available Sunday to help me get tefillin into duffel bags and deliver them to the airport?

I can pay, need a car though.

Tonight! Win The Sterling Silver 925 Hazorfim Candlesticks Of Your Choice! Donate To Our Tefillin Campaign And Automatically Be Entered!

https://www.dansdeals.com/more/site-announcements/48-hours-donate-pair-tefillin-just-250-honor-moshe-rabeinus-yartzeit-plus-hazorfim-candlestick-giveaway-happening-sunday-huge-campaign-update/

From that post:

This campaign started with one tweet giving away one pair of tefillin, grew to us giving away 30 pairs, and then turned into a campaign to get one pair of tefillin for every soul we lost on Simchas Torah.

I am so proud to be able to report that we have BH passed our original goal of 1,200 pairs of tefillin!
Thanks to everyoneís incredible generosity and support for Israel and the safety of Jews worldwide, we have been able to distribute 1,611 pairs of tefillin to date! To put that into perspective, that is over 500,000 tefillin wrapped yearly.

We want this to continue to grow, and to that end, we will be building a website for Tefillin Connection where you will be able to donate tefillin knowing 100% of the proceeds go directly towards sending a pair of tefillin to a Jewish man who has committed to wearing it daily for life.

The idea for the name Tefillin Connection came from our forums, and the message is beautiful; we are making a connection between the donor, the man who starts to wear tefillin daily, Hashem and his mitzvos, and the protection and zechus it brings for all of klal Yisroel.

(BH just ran a successful $25k matching campaign)

FWIW we did like 6 or so pairs like this so far and none were kosher.

We work with https://chicagomitzvahcampaign.org/contact-us/ and they can check it, you may have to pay shipping.

Thanks!

if they can't someone else can
If you know any, feel free to post.

Not to nitpick but you got me curious, as the actual number canít be over 500k yearly after deducting shabbos and yom tov, even if using the Gregorian calendar. If using the Hebrew calendar itís even lower however in a leap year like this year itís close, as Sephardim donít wrap on chol hamoed either.

If anyone is interested in trivia, what is the least and most times an Ashkenaz and Sephardic Jew may wrap in a Gregorian calendar year?

First thing I noticed is the numbers don't add up.

I don't know minhag chabad, but many Ashkenazim don't wear tefillin on Chol Hamoed.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Sounds like nitpicking to me :/

500,000/1,611=311
Sounds like a basic back of math calculation was done, 365 days minus 52 shabbosim, equalling 313.
Ok, so he forgot to add all the yomim tovim (notwithstanding the fact that some of the yomim tovim fall out on Shabbos).

Oh itís definitely nitpicking, Iím just more interested in the trivia than nitpicking for nitpicking sake. 500k is a random arbitrary number and it probably passed 500k by now regardless of how you count.

The musician Kobi Peretz said on Israeli TV (ch 14) that he raised nearly 2m Israeli Shekel to buy tzitzis and tefillin for IDF soldiers and that he has already distributed hundreds of pairs.

Hereís the full interview, the tefillin discussions are interspersed with him telling about a situation where he was removed from stage and ejected from an IDF base he was scheduled to perform at:
