Gabe is a rising eighth grader at Berkshire Country Day School, and he just had his Bar Mitzvah a couple weeks ago. Quite a while before that Gabe came to me and told me he wanted to help HotFutbol as his Mitzvah Project. Well, help he did, and I could not be more proud of his hard work. I’ll let Gabe pick it up from here:
“I want to thank everyone who contributed funds and equipment to HotFutbol Haiti for my Mitzvah Project. A Mitzvah project involves doing a “good deed” and I was so happy to be able to do something to help this amazing program, and to work with John Evans. We raised over $1000 and got a lot of equipment including awesome new cleats, shin guards, jerseys, balls, warm ups and soccer socks, plus much more!! It was so cool what was accomplished by reaching out to friends, family and businesses in our community, and I appreciate the incredible generosity! This was an important project for me because I learned that I can set and accomplish goals, and that it takes many people to get it done! I hope to continue my work with HotFutbol and eventually travel to Haiti to volunteer.”
Gabe, I can’t wait till you have the opportunity to to come to Haiti and work with HotFutbol. You bring something special to everything you do.
