    What about shluchim kids that are not on the program…. they did not recieve anything. I hate when adults use children as buisiness props!

    So now, the shluchim kids will go home and say Yankel Cohen from Anytown got a package b/c he is part of my shliach…

    from a very disappointed shliach! I did not expect this from merkas.

    Not fair

    Not fair

    What about all the other kids? Aren’t we all shluchim of the Rebbe in our own way? The beauty of shluchim is they treat everyone the same……..so why does the administration set such an elitist example.

    Bad idea!

    Bad idea!

    Not impressed. What about the kids whose parents aren’t shluchim? How do they feel about being excluded? Send gifts to the shluchim’s kids home, away from camp, where other children who are not going to get the present aren’t going to feel left out or jealous. Adults should know better.

    DO NOT FEEL BAD!!! I heard that they sent ALL the other kids who are not qualified members – water bottles with sand inside.

    yay, this is all part of the russian ignorant mentality that you’re only od value if you’re on shlichus. how do you think the other kids in camp feel?

    why the outrage

    why the outrage

    to all those people who seem outraged I am suprised on your for being shocked you must either be BT or new to the “system”

    Why dont you print real NEWS like the guys going to obama
    house in the name of “markos shliachous”

    if I am not mistaken the program is NOT free. There is a nice cost for it. Not all shluchim can afford this when there is BH more then 2 kids that qualify for the program. I heard wonderful things about MYSHLIACH – perhaps there should be a very minimal fee $18 per child.

    I am sure there were ‘good’ intentions here. But lets face it – more kids feelings were hurt!

    too funny

    too funny

    you people are too funny! when you send a package to your kid in camp do you send a package to EVERYONE in the camp? of course not! who can afford that? ridiculous.

    kudos to myshliach for sending them a little something. and yes, we understand that you cant send water bottles to every kid in every camp in the world. lol!!

    someone did something very nice for the kids they are responsible – u could either open an organization that give everyone in the world something(cuz ur argument of how ppl feel would extend to the hungry kids in africa as well)

    or im sure if u emailed myshliach that u would like to send every kids something to make them feel special – they would help u with it as well.

    there is nothing wrong with clubs – starting from TH all the way to boy scouts

    My son did not go to camp. He received his water bottle at home and he was very very happy. He has been using his water bottle the whole summer. Thank you to the My Shliach program.

    I am surprised at the selfishness & “tzu kumpt mir” attitude of posters here! These kids live without things that your kids take for granted. Why can’t you fahrgin them a little pampering once in a while?

    answer to 14 and 17

    I think that noone has a problem with them getting pampered ( I am a shliach the son of a shliach). I think the question is, if camp which is a forum for all Lubavitcher children, is the place to be singling children out with gifts for being part of a specific group. Mothers that send packages are qualifying their children as being their children not a member of a society that they cant get into. At the same time sending your kids exaggerated packages in camp still does make the other kids jealous but subconciously thats usually the parents… Read more »

    Couldn’t have said it better myself. It is like making certain activities available to certain children, that are part of a large group (camp). All parents pay to send thier children to a Lubavitch camp, and the ones who are not shluchim generally pay more as there is a shluchim discount. (Not fair either…..but that is for another time). They expect the same treatment for thier child as any other child recieves. And if the children are all recieving a gift from a Lubavitch moisod, they should all recieve it. Regarding mother’s sending to thier individual children. It is like… Read more »

    All this does is create a division among our children. To send something to children staying at home is a great idea, but to children in a camp it establishes a hierarchy and should not be allowed by the parents or the administrators of the camp.

    i agree with all it was not fair

    i agree with all it was not fair

    that bc their dad got lucky to be on merkos means they get a package not fair to alot of the kids who have nothing in their own home

    to everyone

    to everyone

    Some of these kids never saw a “real” Jewish community in their life. Some don’t have any frum friends to talk to at home. Some don’t have a school to go to, they have to look at a computer instead. Some don’t have normal living conditions. The list goes on, yes a shiliach IS different because that’s what the Rebbe said. Does anyone complain when you are not allowed to go to the kinnus? Some people do but that’s because they are jealous. However those with brains in our heads realize that not everyone is in this elite group of… Read more »

    MyShliach can make it right by sending the rest of the kids a treat. It would be an olive branch to the other children.

    I geuss u dont realize how hard it is for a kid on shluchis (my cousins) ar all on shluchis and they have a very hard tiem so they do deserve more then anyone who is not on shluchis! u dont know how difficult it can be!!!

    I do realize how difficult it can be. I was on shlichus for 5 years in the south west. I am not saying these children don’t deserve it, they definitely do. But, there is a time and place for everything and not if it is at the expense of other childrens feelings. They could have sent it right before camp to take with them, or else send everyone!

    excellent idea! sponsor the package for this ‘olive branch’ for all the other kids – i’m sure myshliach will be willing to accommodate your request.

    hatzlacha and kudos for your wonderful suggestion and contribution!
