Dear Family and Friends,

I am asking for your support as I engage in a very unique chesed mission bringing joy, laughter and presents to children with serious medical issues or suffer in poverty in Eretz Yisrael during Chanukah.

Over the last couple of years, I have been an active member is a special organization, Lev Leytzan: The Heart of Therapeutic Clowning, Inc. It is a New York based medical clowning non-profit organization that was founded in 2003 to work with children and adults hospitalized, homebound or in senior living facilities to bring cheer and joy to their lives.

I will be among a select group of clowns who will be joining the mission that both Lev Leytzan and the Ossie Memorial Toy Fund have created. I am one of these special people and this Chanukah my clown troop is going on an incredible chesed mission.

We will be going to hospitals to visit sick children to distribute Chanukah presents they otherwise would not get and bring simcha to many more people there. There aren't enough words to describe our work in Israel; this is our 10th year partnering with the Toy Fund in Israel.

Because I believe so strongly in Lev Leytzan’s unbelievable work, I am spending my Chanukah vacation working 18 hours a day as a clown to bring joy to others. In order to go on this mission each clown needs to raise $3,000. I am looking to raise this amount and perhaps more to help other clowns join as well.

If you are willing to help me bring happiness to the lives of hundreds of people, contribute to my cause by donating. All donations are tax-deductible, and you are able to use maaser money to help us in our mission.

Thank you for supporting me. In doing so, you will be bringing happiness to hundreds of men, woman and children of all ages.

Tizku L’mitzvos,

Avi Schwartzblatt
