  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Wondering if you ever considered advertising on Jewish sites or reached out to people like Shapiro or Prager, etc. Are there private sponsors of team Israel or just govt funded?

Each team/organization for Team ISR (skating, judo, skeleton, etc) have their own budgets.  More medals=more money.  So Skeleton has a budget of 0 shekels, we get nothing from the government.  Even flights to/from ISR are paid for out of the athlete's pockets.  Baruch hashem i've received help from private individuals and donors, including family and friends.  Skeleton costs about $40,000 per season.  I've been fortunate to get help to cover about 40% of that over 4 years, the rest coming from my former Oracle salary and savings.  At this point it would be impossible to do another cycle given the costs.

I requested from Ben Shapiro if he could sponsor or shout out on his show--he/his people passed but for $3k he could give a shoutout on his show.  I felt this was an irresponsible use of funds, haha.
DD I sent an email to once, but i think it may have gotten lost in the mix.

Regardless, I have been blessed to be the recipient of so much support from random yids all over the world, I certainly can't complain and wouldn't have been able to do it without them.
