     Save a Child's Heart Endowment Fund


Save a Child's Heart Endowment Fund was formed in 2001 in memory of Dr. Ami Cohen,z"l, its founder. Three of the most popular fund-raising programs are mentioned here:
 
        1. "CIRCLE OF LIFE" in which an individual, a foundation or fund contributes $15,000 to pay for the operation and care of a sick child.  The contributor receives a plaque with a picture of the child that was saved and the story about the child.

         2.  BAR/BAT MITZVAH PROGRAM..  This program gives the Bar or Bat Mitzvah child the opportunity to participate in the greatest mitzvah of all - saving a life.  These children feel that they are sharing their simcha with a poor child that needs their help to survive. The Bar/Bat Mitzvah child can contribute a portion of their gift money to Save a Child's Heart Endowment Fund or some children choose very original fund raising projects to benefit Save a Child's Heart. These children receive a beautiful certificate which can be presented to them at  their Bar or Bat Mitzvah.
    
        3.  "CHILDREN SAVING CHILDREN" which we are very proud of. Save a Child's Heart Endowment Fund works with young children in synagogues or schools who raise funds by filling a tzedakah box.  The "Children Saving Children" program has been very successful and a wonderful source for teaching Jewish values to children, such as "Tikkun Olam"- making the world a better place.  This program has also taught these young children that they can make a difference.  The plaques with pictures of the children they have saved are displayed in the entrance hall of their schools and synagogues.
