Hi Everyone!

I love to dance! I have been dancing since I was 2 years old. When I found out that there were children in Bat Yam, Israel who wanted to dance but didn't have the money to dance, I knew that for my Bat Mitzvah project I wanted to try and find a way to raise money to send these kids to dance school. I wanted them to experience what I do- joy and happiness when I dance! The Toronto Bat Yam Dance program began in 2009. The program supports a dance program in the most disadvantaged neighborhood of Bat Yam.

Please help me! Without our help, participating in the dance program is out of reach for most Ethiopian-Israeli immigrants. Tuition fees are approximately 180.00 shekels or $34.00/month. I would love to send these children to dance school. Dance teaches you that the harder you work, the more you can accomplish! Dance helps you feel confident and helps you build friendships. Dance makes kids happy.

Any donation is much appreciated! Thank you so much!

Lauren :)
