I hope you and your families are well and staying safe.
Special and important notice!
I’m not usually this direct, but I am just going to come right out and unashamedly ask you to please donate today for an extremely special cause involving vulnerable and innocent children.
This is both alarming and frightening due to the COVID-19 situation.
We are now holding a major campaign, helping families who are on the verge of divorce, children are witnessing parents fighting, talking about separating and divorcing.
This situation is leaving innocent children in pain, they are suffering yet another uncertainty of the future of their family.
Shocking news just in this past week “There is a 314% increase with the number of couples currently considering splitting up, compared to before the epidemic.“
The Sydney Morning Herald June 7, 2020.
As you may know, we have been actively involved in supporting families in crisis for many years, yet we have never experienced anything close to what we have all been through with the Covid-19 pandemic. It has taken a huge toll on vulnerable families. Both financially and emotionally.
As a teacher, principal, and marriage coach for the past 40 years, I have seen hundreds of innocent children broken emotionally, suffering and scarred for many years, due to family breakdown. The long-term damage watching parents fight in front of their children and listening to them carry on about separation or divorce, is heart-wrenching and sad. This is why I am driven to help in any way I can.
Together with my team at The Jewish Children Support Centre, we are in direct contact with parents and children who are deeply affected by the family breakdown, supporting them through this crisis. I am personally seeking urgent assistance from you and a small handful of people whom I believe care deeply about saving the collapse of marriages. I truly believe that we can make a difference in the lives of these innocent children if we step in at this vulnerable time.
A Tax-Deductible donation of $730 ( $2 a day), will enable the families to receive necessary support and counselling with the hope of keeping them together and supporting them till the crisis passes.
Your kindness will hopefully make turn away from the divorce lawyers and working with us towards regulation and rebuilding a safe and secure home for their children.
Thank you for taking the time to consider this request.
Please act today by filling in the donation form asap so we can put your donation to work immediately.
May Hashem pour his blessing upon you and your family, with an abundance of health, wealth and time to enjoy it, so you can continue to be on the giving side for many years to come.
