Mazal Tov! This is a really special time for you and your family. You’re to be commended for wanted to do something special for other children in honour of this milestone.We at Chai Lifeline Canada can help you create a Bar/Bat Mitzvah project as unique as you are.
GATHER YOUR FRIENDS, HAVE A PARTY, AND A MITZVAH – ALL AT THE SAME TIME!
Here are some ideas to stimulate your thinking:
SHARE YOUR SIMCHA
Share your birthday or special day with a child who is suffering from an illness in the hospital or at home.
Each birthday celebrated by a critically ill child is a special milestone celebrating life. For the children in our programs it not only marks another year, it demonstrates a great achievement.
Children will begin a fresh, new year by receiving a surprise delivery of flowers, cookies, balloons or gift cards on their special day. This simple act of kindness delivers joy and hope.
MAKE A TOY TOWER
Instead of flowers or balloons, skip the ordinary and do something extraordinary. Toy Towers do more than decorate, they give back. When your party is over, they will brighten the lives of children whose lives have been impacted by serious illness.
You choose the items selected from our toy list and create the towers. Make the towers higher by adding balloons and create your own marvel.
PACKAGED WITH LOVE
