This November marks the seventh and second anniversary of mum and dad's, Stephanie and Jonathan's deaths z"l.
Over the years, we have talked a lot about the special childhood they gave us - the laughter, love, and hugs - and what amazing parents they were. We heard many a story from Aunty Alison about the fun and mischief mum would get up to as a young lady and of her and dad as a 'young' couple.
We miss them deeply every day, and this year we want to remember their lives by raising money for children at-risk in Israel who instead experienced abuse/neglect in their young lives, and who desperately need a new start. Children who were not lucky enough to experience a childhood like ours. We want to help, in their honour, to give them the love and security they deserve.
Please help us remember mum and dad, Stephanie and Jonathan, by donating to our page.
A little bit more about the cause...
Over the next month, Orr Shalom will find homes for approximately 50 children who have been removed from their homes by the social welfare services, after suffering severe abuse, neglect and tragedy.
These children will arrive in their new foster or family group homes with little or no personal possessions, from highly traumatic circumstances, in acute distress. Many just come with the clothes they are wearing. They literally have nothing. It costs just $500 to equip a child with a start-up pack to meet their basic needs. We want to help ten of these children.
Thank you so much for all your constant love and support. We really hope you can help us reach this goal, for mum and dad, Stephanie and Jonathan.
