Dear Crown Heights Community,
Since the inception of the yellow Yad L’Shliach card campaign in Crown Heights, you have added more than $10,000 to your grocery bills for the benefit of Shluchim worldwide.
Each time you added a card to your purchases – whether it was $1, $3 or $5 – you added to the $10,000 being given to those whose entire day is a continuous act of Tzedakah and Shlichus.
Thanks to you we have been fortunate enough to be able to assist more Shluchim and Shluchos and their children. In fact 10 Shluchim and their families received $1000 gifts.
Thanks to the big-hearted business owners who have enthusiastically agreed to place the cards prominently in their check-out aisles, more Shluchim’s families have had their financial burdens lightened. Remember these gifts are not for the mosdos but rather for the shluchim and shluchos personal use.
In particular, we want to recognize Kahan’s Superette, Empire Kosher, Kosher Town, Kingston bake shop, and Mr. Green’s for their generous partnership with Yad L’Shliach in this endeavor.
Know that every dollar you donated went directly to Shluchim. A Shlucha was able to buy her toddler a first pair of shoes. A young Shliach was able to buy himself his own picture of the Rebbe. Children of Shluchim all over the world were able to hear a YES, instead of the usual “not now, we don’t have the money, maybe soon, thanks for your patience.”
The words of praise that we receive from the Shluchim, is heartwarming and encourages us and should encourage you to continue even in this small way to keep swiping those ‘yellow cards’ whenever you shop.
Please continue your legendary kindness by supporting our troops and may we continue to share good news until the coming of Moshaich now.
Become a monthly donor by visiting us at yadlshliach.com or send a check to Yad L’shliach 305 Kingston Ave. Brooklyn NY 11213.
The Friedman Family
P.S. Total amount given to shluchim since inception is $638,000
