Batmitzvah girl Rebecca inspires giving on her special day.07/01/20
Chigwell Batmitzvah girl Rebecca Preston celebrated her special day last week with an injection of meaning and chessed through charity GIFT.
Proud parents Rashelle and Andy told us, “It was very easy to twin our daughter’s bat mitzvah celebration with GIFT. We asked our guests to bring unused toiletries with them. This was a very simple request and everyone was very pleased to help. We also had a GIFT stand during the reception where the children made Shabbat sets and packs for the homeless. At GIFT’s packathon the following Thursday, we and other families packed up the toiletries in decorative cellophane ready to be distributed to families in need. We cannot recommend GIFT highly enough if you want to add something special and worthwhile to your Simcha.”
