A group of friends and students at IDC Herzliya, met Yahel Director, Dana Talmi, at an event earlier this year. Following the event, the group of students were inspired.
A few months later, they contacted Dana about wanting to help Yahel, and about wanting to make a difference. They weren’t quite sure how or to what extent, but they knew that they wanted to help. After a quick trip down to Gedera and visits with Yahel and Friends by Nature, they were particularly inspired by the community garden project – they decided they wanted to help raise funds to sustain the garden.
The group of friends were hosting a joint birthday party for all three of them a few weeks after they made their decision, so they decided to talk to the bar where they were hosting their party, and ask them if they would be willing to donate a percentage of the proceeds to FBN’s community garden…and they agreed! Three weeks and three birthdays later, Friends by Nature was presented with a check for NIS 1,500 as well as toys and games for the community.
This time of year, and always, we are so thankful to those people who do not just sit on the sidelines – they get involved! If you are involved with Yahel already, thank you, and if you want to do more, please let us know. We are happy to talk to you about how we can work together to make a difference.
