|By Naomi FeinmesserIsrael is at war, and over the last few weeks, I have received requests from across the globe from friends, family, friends of friends and friends of family, asking me if I know any ways that they can help Israel in her time of need. There are so many ways to help, and particularly for those not in Israel and who are therefore not able to send physical items through local collections, here are some reputable websites through which you can donate:|
|1) Underwear Campaign
Care packages for soldiers, sending underwear and other essentials. Also using stores in the South to support their businesses in this difficult time.2)Ben Goldstein PayPal ID: [email protected]
Ben is going regularly to the soldiers, delivering whatever they request. High up on the list is usually deodorant, shaving equipment, underwear and cold drinks. At the moment he is not a registered charity, but if you look him up on Facebook you can see what he is doing. He has supplied to a number of bases, including the base where one of my neighbors is serving.3) One Israel Fund
One Israel Fund is providing security and medical equipment to Southern communities. They have helped prevent terrorist attacks and infiltrations, some of which you may have read about over the last few weeks.4) Supplies for IDF
Care packages of new towels, socks, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpastes, etc. being sent to our troops on the front lines.5) Yashar Lachayal
