Charity Awareness

May 6th is "Look Back, Walk Forward," the official teen walk for Israel. Bbyo is leading the program this year as a part of our J-Serve 2012 project. Register here:
The day begins at the Holocaust Museum in Skokie, with a program with Holocaust survivors, followed by a Walk with Israel from the museum to the Mayer Kaplan JCC. The walk starts at 11:15, but I HIGHLY recommend getting there at 9 for museum access or 10 for the Holocaust program. The day also includes advocacy programming, hands-on service projects, sports, food, and more!! (sorry the letters are all smushed together on the top)

"In an effort to engage youth in service, social justice and 

philanthropy efforts that are meaningful to them, BBYO has 
launched a campaign called Stand Up: BBYO’s Campaign For 
Those in Need, aimed at getting teens involved locally with 
partner organizations that support causes that matter most to 
their communities".

Ahavah BBG chose the Lauri S. Bauer Foundation for Sudden Loss
as the stand up cause for this year. You can learn more at
