I want to share a special opportunity with you that echoes the incredible spirit of our recent Symphony of the Stars concert. Our dear friend, Alex Katz, co-hosted the event and shared his inspiring journey from being a Stateside donor to becoming one of our active volunteer medics in Israel. It's a journey that reflects the profound impact we can make when we unite for a cause we believe in. At the concert, we announced a vital campaign to fund bulletproof vests and helmets for our 7000 volunteer EMTs in Israel, each set costing $800. Here's the exciting part: Alex has generously offered to match donations from his friends, up to $25,000. Your support today will directly contribute to the safety and well-being of our volunteers on the front lines. I understand your time is valuable, but I believe in the power of friends coming together for a cause. Your generosity, combined with Alex's commitment, will go a long way in ensuring our volunteers can continue saving lives. Thank you for being a cherished part of the United Hatzalah family.
