How You Can Help
Bar/Bat Mitzvah Project Ideas
School Carnival – Create fun and exciting carnival booths with your classmates, then invite your whole community to come play! You can charge an entrance fee or have visitors pay per game or ride.
Bike-a-thon- Ask family and neighbors to pledge money for every mile you ride. Then strap on your helmet, set your stop watch and go! You can also organize the same type of activity as a Swim-a-thon, Walk-a-thon or Dance-a-thon with the proceeds going to Aleh.
Raffle/Auction – Organize a school-wide raffle/auction by soliciting gifts from parents, friends and local stores. Have tickets printed and sell as many as you can, then have fun drawing the winning tickets. Some prizes you might want to offer are a bike, computer, mp3 player, stereo or gift certificates.
Garage Sale – Collect used items like clothing, books and toys that are in good condition from students and their families. Let your neighborhood know that the proceeds from all items sold will be given to Aleh.
Host a Famous Speaker – If you or a friend have a connection to someone well-known, invite your “celebrity” to speak in your community on behalf of Aleh. Advertise the event in your local paper and collect an entrance fee from those who attend.
Original Ideas - We'd love to hear from you! Write us with your own idea, and we'll be happy to help you out in any way! We can advertise your project on our website and Facebook page and will provide you with any brochures, envelopes and pictures that you might need.
Click here to see some amazing projects that other Bar/Bat Mitzvah kids have developed!
Electric Wheelchair - $10,000 - Many of the children at Aleh cannot walk by themselves. An Electric Wheelchair gives a child the freedom to get around on his or her own by moving a specialized joystick attached to the chair.
Medical Clowns - $5,000 – Clowns make everyone smile, especially the children at Aleh. Using laughter and fun, the Medical Clowns help the children communicate and have a great time, too!
Adopt A Child for A Month - $2,500 – Become part of the Aleh Family by “adopting” a child at Aleh and sponsoring all of his or her needs for a month, including meals, classes, special therapies and extra-curricular activities. You’ll receive a picture and a description of your adopted child, along with a note telling you how your gift is helping your child.
Specialized Toys and Games - $1,000 – These toys aren’t just “fun and games”! They actually help the children strengthen their muscles, learn how to communicate and improve their senses. Your donation will go towards specially-designed computer programs, puppets, a basketball session or toys with flashing lights, noises and movements.
Sponsor an Outing - $500 - Just like you, the kids at Aleh love going on class trips. With your help, children at Aleh can visit the zoo, the beach or even the Kotel!
