Update: The Carmel Fire Relief Fund has raised over $15,000 through the ROI Community and CLSFF networks. This has been a great example of how the network can be deployed to make a difference. Lynn’s generous offer to match donations is valid until this Sunday night, December 19th at 11 pm EST. Click here to donate. Also, if you have volunteered in the relief efforts, please email us by Sunday night, so that a contribution can be made to the fund in honor of your work.
The fire is finally out. Now the work begins. Lynn is challenging all of us to lend support and bring relief to those in need.
For every donation made to the Carmel Fire Relief Fund by a member of the Schusterman Family Foundation network, Lynn will match that donation dollar for dollar. And for those of you in Israel who are able to volunteer your time, efforts and resources, a donation to the fund will be made in your honor.
We encourage everyone to give a donation—even a small donation of $18. Using the power of our network these small sums can add up to a significant contribution. Donations of up to $500 will be matched dollar for dollar over the course of the next 6 days. With our help, the people affected by this tragedy can begin rebuilding their lives.
