As I approach my Bat Mitzvah year, I am learning what it means to be a good person who can make a difference in the world.
On Sunday February 28th, together with my Bat Mitzvah club, I will be leading the Jump4Chai event for the children of Chai Lifeline. I am really excited to be planning and running this 'kids helping kids' event where in addition to the activities I will do, I will be able to choose how the money I raise will be used to benefit a child or family.
When a child is born or diagnosed with a serious illness, the entire family is affected. Families literally can be torn apart as one parent moves into the hospital to be with the sick child. Siblings, already worried about a brother's, sister's or parent's health, suffer greatly when their daily routines are disrupted. Chai Lifeline Canada steps in, offering whatever is needed, bringing light, laughter and happiness into the darkest times.
This year with families facing increased isolation and complications due to the pandemic, Chai Lifeline Canada needs your help more than ever. This organization does incredible work and provides support to children who are battling serious illnesses. I am very fortunate that I will be able to choose how a family will benefit from the funds I raise.
In helping me reach my fundraising goals, you are also helping to support the Chai Warriors and their families. For every dollar I raise my family will match the amount to make the most out of your donation.
Daphne; Its a great cause to celebrate your Bat Mitzvah while supporting a great charity like the Chai Lifeline. Stay Humble!

Dauphne, this is a wonderful thing to do. We are happy to support you.
I miss you, David and Jordy very much my love.
At the same time, I am so proud of you taking the important initiative of fundraising for a substantial help for children in need.
Approaching the Bat Mitzvah year enables you mentally to step out your own
plans, dreams and activities to imagine the situation of the less fortuned kids.
This is - spreading LOVE, UNDERSTANDING & SUPPORT.
Thank you so much for doing it.
God bless you.
Loving you very much, and hope to see you, David and Jordy soon.

My beautiful Canadian love,
We feel very proud of you and your initiative helping sick children. Since you were a child you have shown interest in helping homeless people and end all suffering so I am not surprised at all. Well done. It is generous and important to remember to pay attention and help suffering children on our happy occasions.
We love you, and my sweet David and Jordy very much and hope this Covid Schmovid thing ends soon so we can meet and make faces at each other and help Aya garden.
Big big big hug,
Saba Moshe and Aya.
We are all so proud of you. You have grown so much since we met you at 4 years old. We have watched you grow into a beautiful, sweet, loving and caring young lady. We love you and wish you all the best always.
Happy Bat mitzvah from all of us Weizs family: Joshua, Aiden, Noah and Nina.
