Help Skype Holocaust survivor programs into classrooms!

Visit the campaign here

The Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center of Philadelphia’s 30+ Holocaust survivors and WWII liberators are geographically confined to the Greater Philadelphia area.  You can help them establish a Skype media center from which they can reach more students, in more classrooms, and all at one time!

Their crowdfunding campaign “Skype Holocaust Survivor Programs into Classrooms” begins today!

Here are a few ways to help:

  1. Donate!  Everything helps.  Even small donations have a big impact.
  2. Post to Facebook/Twitter, etc. – The more people who hear about this fundraising effort, the more likely HAMEC can meet its target.
  3. Share with your community – Call/email your friends, tell your co-workers, make an announcement at your organization’s event to spread the word.

Indiegogo Generosity has zero platform fees, so your donation goes farther to help reach its goal.

Need more incentive?  An angel donor has promised to add an extra $1 for every $2 donated through Oct. 15.

So please donate today!

5-star-rating

From Goodreads:  “A beautifully written book about the German/Jewish Holocaust and a family that lived through the hell.  This is a true, interwoven story that captures your attention from the first pages and true attitude of people who just don’t understand.  Teenage attitude, husband’s impatience all turn into a rare opportunity to learn not just about the Holocaust but to learn about your family and the history of survival.  It is a quick read, mostly because you just can not stop!” by Carol

Thank you, Carol!  Your kind words are so insightful and very much appreciated!  I agree, life is full of opportunities to learn.  We just have to remain open to it.  I hope everyone finds 94 Maidens as meaningful as you did!  ~ Rhonda

From Goodreads: “This book is a very easy read-unfortunately I found this out last night when I started it at 9:30 and finished at 2:30 in the morning.  It has been a very long time since I have read a book in one sitting and even in that short period of time I got very attached to the characters.”~ Liz
Thank you for your very kind words and your 5-star review, Liz!  So glad you were engrossed AND attached!  Means so much!! ~ Rhonda  :)
