Our event has gone so well and we can’t wait to sell more cakes".Sophie Woolfstein, who together with Aliza Noe runs the Manchester GIFT office, noted:GIFT’s mission is to inspire and enable lifelong giving, its vision is a community engaged, supported and empowered by the gift of giving.“I was so inspired by the students, their energy and enthusiasm were electric; they also put so much effort into every detail! It was incredible to see how much they enjoyed doing this tremendous act of giving.”GIFT works across London, Manchester and Israel to develop a meaningful sense of responsibility for others, while simultaneously helping individuals and families in need.GIFT’s programmes are particularly aimed at young people to instill in our present and future community the values of doing good deeds and making a difference, providing them with tangible, meaningful opportunities to help and connect with others.To get involved, contact email@example.com
