This is Mystical Paths 100% Charity Direct to the Needy for Purim Campaign, where we act as your agent to give ALL of the donation to the needy in Israel on Purim…
Matanot L’evyonim, gifts to the poor for Purim. Mishne Torah Hilchos Megillah says we should INCREASE in the amount given to the poor instead of giving more Shloach Manos or having a bigger Seudas Purim (Purim Party). “During the year when giving charity, one may check and see if a person is deserving / in need. On Purim, one should give happily to anyone who asks for it, since Matanot L’evyonim has the purpose of creating Purim joy…”
For the past 9 years and this year as well we are offering to be your agent to fulfill the mitzvah of Matanot L’evyonim, charity gifts to the poor for Purim, with the poor and needy of Israel… with NO operating overhead, office expenses, salaries, commissions, or advertising fees. Just charity direct to the poor for Purim (minus only Paypal transaction fees of ~3 1/2% and currency conversion costs of 1%). We do so as a registered Israeli charity with rabbinical supervision – details available upon request.
We have neighbors in need, people who can’t afford clothes for their children, can’t cover medical costs, have had their bank accounts seized and sometimes even their refrigerators seized to cover debts.
Why would we help these people? I’ll tell you why – it’s a mitzvah, it’s chessed, it’s sometimes literally saving a life, and because SOMETIMES THEY ARE YOU! Sometimes, G-d forbid, it’s your friend in need of help, or your neighbor, or even your rabbi, or even – G-d forbid, YOU AND ME.
So while the evil inclination would prefer us to ignore those in need, we have an OBLIGATION to do so.
Bring some light and happiness and joy to those who are in NEED. Donate today, RIGHT NOW, to help the poor and needy for Purim in Israel.
The YETZER Hara – the evil inclination - says: “I vote sit! Go watch a nice video instead. Do not donate!”
In the merit of helping those in need for Purim, may HaKodesh Baruch Hu bring you and your family abundant blessings for Purim and every day of the year!
