BS"D

The picture of girls from a Brooklyn girls yeshiva high school receiving Kavanah Kards shows the great things we are doing.

Kavanah Kards, began about 3 years ago. Increasingly bothered by difficulty focusing while davening, I was inspired to use a post-it note with the meanings of Hashem's names on them, turned to stick out at the top of my sidur so I could see it anywhere I was. It helped!

Then the idea came that if it helped me, it might help others. I designed the first Kavanah Kard bookmarks on my computer and printed 2500. Wherever possible, I gave them out. On a trip to Baltimore the spark ignited a fire in a woman of great chesed there. Together we distributed over a thousand of them during my stay. From there it grew--website, articles in international publications, people spreading the word and sharing the cards. More than 70,000 Kavanah Kards are now in 7 countries around the world.

In addition to cards to improve focus when davening, there is the Service of Hashem card, inspiring people to dedicate everyday actions for their good health or well-being to be able to serve Hashem. Also there is the Kavana of Mitzvohs card, based on the sefer K'asher Tzivah Hashem by Rabbi Daniel Garfinkel--on the little-known and little done halacha in Shulchan Aruch (Oruch Chaim simen samech) of having the intention before doing any mitzvah to do it "as Hashem commanded".

Kavanah Kards that the girls in the pictrure are receiving & Kavana of Mitzvohs cards are the base of the Mindful Mitzvahs Campaign--an initiative to encourage people to do at least one mindful mitzvah and make at least one mindful bracha a day for 40 days at their level of comfort. Anther step is thanking Hashem 5-10 minutes a day for the things we don't want in our lives. This is from the sefer "Say Thank-you and See Miracles", by Rabbi Shalom Arush.

There is also a weekly conference call to support people in their journey to greater kavanah, each on a different topic. Some titles are Time & Kavanah, Gratitude & Kavanah and Teshuva & Kavanah. They may be listened to on the website on the Mindful Mitzvahs Call page.

More than a thousand Campaign pamphlets and cards have gone out in the short time since we were in the Tisha B'Av booklet of the Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation! Calls and emails still come in daily and 250-350 different people visit the KavanahKards.com website every week!.

Also, the potential of Mindful Mitzvahs to create greater positive connection of children to Hashem and to establish proper mitzvahs and davening is enormous. Dozens of schools and individual teachers worldwide have gotten them to use for teaching about kavanah and for special school programs and projects. As many as a thousand at one time have been sent to a single school!

The wonderful articles about Kavanah Kards in Mishpacha Junior and Binyan magazines, have brought requests for them from children from many countries for themselves, their families their class and their friends.

Heartfelt notes and emails of thanks come from all over the world with accounts of how much people's tefillahs and lives have improved, baruch Hashem!

The project has a bracha from Rabbi Kenievsky for 'hatzlacha”. Rav Gamliel Rabinowtz blessed that they should be spread all over the world.

Today our cards and materials are available in English, Hebrew and Yiddish; French versions are now being done, in response to requests.. They have also been requested in Russian and Spanish, and will be done as soon as we are able.

Mindful Mitzvahs is a one-of-a-kind project; everything is given free of charge to individuals, schools and groups., Although we do receive (and welcome) donations of any amount, it doesn't begin to cover the expenses. Also, there is so much more that could be done to bring Klal Yisrael closer to Hashem with funding for more advertising, translating. and printing materials in different languages. Advertising is by far the most costly item.

There is no other overhead. I personally handle all details of the website, in-taking requests, packaging, mailing and product development with no money spent to fulfill any aspect of our project, aside from the direct costs of design, printing, mailing, and advertising.

Your support of Mindful Mitzvahs gives you the great zechus of helping bring others closer to Hashem--a mitzvah emphasized by the Chovos Halevavos (Duties of the Heart), in the Gate of Bitachon. To send a check or for a tax-deductible contribution, please contact us at MindfulMitzvahs@gmail.com.

Visit our website and see the great work that's happening. Have a part in bringing Klal Yisroel closer to Hashem, with it's zechus in olam hazeh and olam habah.

Be a part--40 Days can Change Your World! Thank you for your support.  If you want to get your own Mindful Mitzvahs Campaign materials free, please contact us!
