How we can help
Shaving Israel wants to help you help your lone soldier's unit in the IDF.
Shaving Israel's mission is to educate US citizens about the needs and essentials of the Israel Defense Force (IDF) and funds the purchase of toiletries, personal items and food vouchers from Israeli suppliers for members of the IDF who are in need or deprived of family support systems.
We have recently purchased 47 jackets from an IDF approved vendor in Israel to benefit a local IDF member and his unit, which is stationed in the mountains of northern Israel. His parents, who live in St. Louis, are going to hold a fundraiser to benefit Shaving Israel in their home by inviting their friends for a program put on by Shaving Israel.
How Shaving Israel can help? The IDF member would find out from the Sgt. in charge of donations what the unit needs and provide us with a list. We will get back to the unit about how much we can afford based on the funds that are given at your event. Once you coordinated with us, you can invite your friends to give virtually In support of your lone soldier. All gifts are tax deductible..
Then we coordinate with the vendor chosen by the Sgt. The product is delivered to an address given to us by the IDF member. Excess funding will go toward other priorities that fall within Shaving Israel’s mission. All gifts to Shaving Israel are deductible.
Your lone soldier gets credit for helping his/her unit. You get to support the IDF in a personal way. Shaving Israel only asks for a photo of the unit wearing/using the product.
Shaving Israel acts as a vehicle through which you can support your child's specific unit. You can see through the attached brochure that we were established as a local, all volunteer group with little overhead and almost a 10 year track record of helping the IDF. We would like to help your lone soldier, too.
Do you know a lone soldier?
P.S. We would be honored to make this offer to all parents in the US, so if you know anybody else with a lone soldier, please, feel free to pass this invitation along to them.
