Goldie’s Bat Mitzvah Project
Medical Kit & Defibrillator
Message to sponsors
For my Bat Mitzvah project, I am raising money for United Hatzalah in Israel. I visited the United Hatzalah headquarters in Jerusalem over winter break. Two things that stood out to me were: one, they don’t receive any money from the government and rely only on donations; and two, they can get to an emergency in less than 90 seconds. To be able to get to an emergency in 90 seconds, they have volunteers all around Israel. Those volunteers need something to use, that’s why I am raising money to get a medic kit and defibrillator. I am raising money by selling baked goods and babysitting. In addition to that, I will be taking a CPR class.
About United Hatzalah of Israel
United Hatzalah of Israel is the largest independent, non-profit, fully volunteer Emergency Medical Service organization that provides the fastest and free emergency medical first response throughout Israel. United Hatzalah’s service is available to all people regardless of race, religion, or national origin. United Hatzalah has more than 7,000 volunteers around the country, available around the clock – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. With the help of our unique GPS technology and our iconic ambucycles, our average response time is less than 3 minutes across the country and 90 seconds in metropolitan areas. Our mission is to arrive at the scene of medical emergencies as soon as possible and provide the patient with professional and appropriate medical aid until an ambulance arrives, resulting in many more lives saved.
All donations made to a MyMitzvah campaign will be allocated toward the specific campaign goal, upon completion of said campaign. Donations to campaigns that do not reach their goals, will go toward the lifesaving activities of United Hatzalah.
