Urgent Plea from a Widow and her Bar Mitzvah Orphan

$2,600 of $12,000 raised

raised by 99 people in 1 week

BEAUTIFUL UPDATE: Every donation so far has been giving great simcha to this widow and her orphans. They are extremely grateful to everyone that is trying to help. It is crucial that we continue to do whatever we can in order to reach our goal.

LAST NIGHT "a prominent individual who is a close friend of the family offered to raise an additional matching $5000 which the family desperately needs if we reach our first $5000 mark."  Please help out and please share this campaign with others. This family needs our help as much help as possible. It will be a huge Mitzvah and will doubly help this family tremendously!

 

My dear brothers and sisters, 

Please take a moment to try and feel my pain. 

I have been a widow for many years, never having fully recovered from the sudden tragic death of my dear young husband Z”L, in a horrific accident.  I can not describe to you the terrible emotional and physical suffering that I and my children have had to endure over the last number of years, as a direct result of this tragedy. 

We believe in Hashem’s kindness and mercy and are sure that he has reasons for this. At the same time, life has become excruciatingly difficult for our family. Every day I struggle alone just to keep us all afloat with the barest minimum necessities. However, my pressure is mounting and I don’t know where to turn if I can’t even adequately provide for my families most basic physical needs, how will I even begin to think about making even the simplest Bar Mitzvah for my son who has already been through so much. I can’t afford a pair of Tefillin or a Seudah, or even a Bar Mitzvah suit, not to mention clothing for my other children. 

Last week, I fell in the street on my way home...

I was rushed by ambulance to the hospital where they attended to me effectively B”H. However, it was a bad break and I’m in a lot of pain!!! I will not be able to work and earn even my meager income for a long period of time. And now, with the Purim and Pesach looming and no way to earn income,

I desperately need your help. 

Unfortunately, I do not have any immediate family that can help support me. Therefore, I turn to you and beg you to please open up your heart and give us the ability to once again stand on our feet and give my son and our family a little bit of simcha and nechama so that we can celebrate this special occasion in a minimally respectable manner.

Please give as much as you can, but no matter what the amount it will help a lot.  I really need it!                                 

In the merit of helping out a desperate widow and her orphans, may Hashem the Father of orphans, bless you and always protect you and your precious family from all harm.

 

Sincerely,

A Pleading Widow and her children,
