The Act of Giving

Posted May 16, 2012 by Stephanie Ginzburg

As event planners we are constantly awed by the creativity and glamour of the party planning world. Each year brings new trends, new ideas and new looks to some very classic pieces associated with the special day for many. Sometimes, we are reminded of simple acts of kindness in ways that are both touching and charitable. As tradition calls in the Bar and Bat Mitzvah world, the celebrant has to complete an act of Charity, also known as Tzedakah within the Jewish Community. One such organization is SOVA run by JFS in Los Angeles. The SOVA Community and Resource Program provides free groceries and supportive services for over 12,000 men, women and children each month, with the goals of meeting immediate needs and helping people move from poverty to self-sufficiency.

Thank you Hannah, Hilary and Stephen for reminding us of this important lesson.

Baskets of Hope are beautiful custom decorated food basket centerpieces that complement your special event décor, impress your guests with their style and uniqueness and make a meaningful statement about your commitment to helping people living in poverty. They also some complete with a donation card in honor of the occasion for each centerpiece.
