28K for 28 Years

The family of Alta Mina Teichtel OBM is holding a 28 hour/28 k fundraiser on her yarzeit today to benefit Keren Alta Mina, the baby furniture Gmach created in her memory. Help them continue bring smiles to every child's face.

From Rabbi Shlomo and Shana Tiechtel - Crown Heights:

28 years ago, a young precious Neshama returned to her maker. On the 23rd of Teves in the year 5750, Alta Mina Tiechtel, of blessed memory, completed her journey upon this earth.

Mina's joy of life and her enthusiasm and excitement for yiddishkeit and for her fellow Jews was too strong to be diminished. She influenced so many during her short lifetime as she radiated warmth and love to all whom she met.

Mina exuded joy; even at her young age, she was fearless and wouldn’t capitulate to any weaknesses. Mina would go directly from her chemo treatment to school, with a smile. Mina would be the first to climb to the highest rung of the monkey bars, with joy, disregarding any frailties.

So with the sound of Mina’s laughter still in their hearts, Mina’s family embarked on a campaign to ensure that every single child in our community of Crown Heights can also have a vibrant smile on their face.

Led by Rabbi Shlomo and Mrs. Shana Tiechtel, Keren Alta Mina carries the responsibility to ensure that every child has what they need to start off their lives as befitting a Yiddishe child.

Whether it’s a crib and mattress, a carriage, a high chair or a car seat to come home with from the hospital – Keren Alta Mina is right there. (Learn more at www.KerenAltaMina.com)

Today, Chof Gimmel Teves, is the 28th Yartzeit of Alta Mina Tiechtel. It is on this day that we invite you to be part of this incredible revolution of ensuring that no Jewish child goes to sleep tonight in a dresser drawer, and that no Jewish mother should be stuck without the ability to take her child outside for some fresh air because they simply cannot afford a carriage.

With the help of a caring and generous friend of Keren Alta Mina, the family has launched a Charidy campaign with the direct goal of raising funds to enable every family that needs support to receive the baby furniture their newborn needs.

Beginning today, 23 Teves at 12 noon, you will have a chance to do a mitzvah in Alta Mina bas Yissacher Shlomo's merit by participating in this worthy campaign.

28 Years. 28 Hours. $28,000. Every single dollar will be DOUBLED for the next 28 hours only and go directly to purchase baby furniture.

Donate now at www.Charidy.com/Mina.

Please join this special campaign as we continue to bring so much joy to the Kinderlach of our community, in loving memory of Alta Mina Tiechtel A”H.

Forget children’s smiles
Brings dignity to the young parents that they don’t need to improvise with odds and ends and can rather have respectable furnishings for their infant and/or toddler.
