Aardvark Update 

Good Deeds Day is an annual tradition of good deeds. All over the world, hundreds of thousands choose to volunteer and help others, putting into practice the simple idea that every single person can do something good, be it large or small, to improve the lives of others and positively change the world. For this years Good Deeds Day, the Jerusalem students participated in workshops for creating potted plants from plastic recycled materials and concrete alongside Israeli school children. Afterwards, our students took the plants over to Hadasah Hospital to brighten and cheer up the patients and their families, nurses, and doctors. Shlomo Ash said, “Today as a group Aardvark went to help schools plant flowers. I found it therapeutic and honestly enjoyable to interact with Israeli youth. After we finished, we headed to the hospital to give them out to people who would want company and a little bit of joy. It really made me feel great to see their smiles and it’s amazing that both parties can benefit from each other – I felt good giving to them and they made me feel good by their giving to me. One of the lady’s took my flowers and blessed me, and it really made my day. Thanks Aardvark!”
