Just got an email from Ruthie Sobel Luttenberg of Birthday Angels in Israel (http://www.birthday-angels.org) …it was filled with such excitement and good news! Birthday Angels, which provides birthday parties for kids who would otherwise not celebrate this very special day in their life, is now expanding its scope and has taken on new organizations that provide the volunteer help to make the parties possible. Since January alone, she has provided more than 685 parties-that makes nearly 3700 smiling kids… we’d say a pretty impressive track record. Ruthie tells me she is also about ready to launch her new teen party kit which will make it possible to have Israeli teens share in the joy of a birthday celebration.
…think it is about time we sent some money to make Ruthie’s work a little easier.
