    My Bat-Mitzvah Project

    For my Bat-Mitzvah Chesed project, I chose to support the Oscar Litwak Foundation, the non-profit organization that my family created in honor of my brother Oscar who passed-away from cancer when he was 4 years old.

2016 Year In Review

Sarah’s Bat-Mitzvah Project

Sarah, Thanks so very much for all you have done and continue to do for The Oscar Litwak Foundation – Mazal-Tov on your Bat-Mitzvah!

I am being called to the Torah as a Bat-Mitzvah on October 27th, 2016.

For my bat mitzvah project, I chose to support the Oscar Litwak foundation, the non-profit foundation that our friends the Litwak’s created in honor of their son, Oscar, who died from cancer when he was 4 years old. With your help I want to sponsor a mobile playroom that will bring entertainment to kids who are hospitalized. The Mobile Playroom is a customized cart filled with toys, games and arts and crafts projects that can be wheeled from one room to the next, allowing patients the opportunity to experience a sense of normalcy and the joy of play.

My Abba and I go to the storage unit to help assemble and fill the carts once a month. It is so gratifying to know I am helping lift the spirits of hospitalized children as well as spending quality time with my Abba.

Every dollar will make a difference in the life of a child, If you can help me, please make a donation by clicking here and write in honor of Sarah’s Bat Mitzvah so they may keep track.

Thank you so much for your support!

My Bat-Mitzvah Project

For my Bat-Mitzvah Chesed project, I chose to support the Oscar Litwak Foundation, the non-profit organization that my family created in honor of my brother Oscar who passed-away from cancer when he was 4 years old. Oscar never got a chance to have a Bar-Mitzvah so for my Bat-Mitzvah I want to honor his memory in a special way. I am going to sponsor a Mobile Playroom that will bring entertainment to kids receiving medical care at UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital. In addition, I had to spend some time in the hospital last year. During my stay I realized how important it was to have some distraction – it was a scary but also boring experience. I was lucky that my friends and family visited me often and kept me occupied, but not everyone is as lucky. That’s why I am asking for your help. I want to create as many bags as possible that will be filled with different toys and crafts that will be handed to patients when they get admitted to the hospital or when they arrive at the ER. The materials will be age specific and will contain things like crayons, markers, sudoku, magazines, uno, playing cards etc.. The cost for each bag is $10 and they will be delivered to local hospitals in California. Would you consider sponsoring one or more bags and helping me reach my goal of 200 bags? Please make a donation at www.oscarlitwakfoundation.org in honor of Andrea’s Bat-Mitzvah.

Thank you so much for your support

91 Mobile Playrooms are lifting the spirits of hospitalized children

In recent months we donated new mobile playrooms to UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital in Gainesville Florida, Childrens National Medical Center in Washington DC, MStar Georgetown University in Washington DC, and LAC + USC Medical Center in Los Angeles. Many hospitals are still on the wait list and we hope to be able to send a unit really soon.

Run…Ferenz…Run!

Our dear friend Ferenz will be running his third marathon; this year he takes on the N.Y. City Marathon on November 3. Although it is always fun to root for him, this time is specially exciting and important as he has chosen to run representing The Oscar Litwak Foundation.

Ferenz has generously offered to turn his effort and sweat into funds to help the Foundation “Lift the Spirits of Hospitalized Children” by pledging a donation for each kilometer he succesfully completes in the marathon. Please help us cheer him on and join Ferenz’s effort by also making a pldege for each kilometer he runs during the race. Ferenz’s goal…to raise enough funds ($2,000) to be able to send a Mobile Playroom unit to another hospital where hundreds of children can benefit from it.

Not only is he facing the prospect of finishing the marathon, but also has chosen this particular race to establish a personal record by completing it under 3 hours and 40 minutes! If he does so, he has selflessly offered to double his pledge…to encourage Ferenz to push his own limits and run his best race ever, bet on him by also doubling your pledge if he is able to beat this time.

Thank you Ferenz for allways supporting The Oscar Litwak Foundation and thank you all for supporting Ferenz and this great cause!

To make a pledge and run with Ferenz, visit the Plede Page!
