AJWS has incorporated this incredible website and opportunity to give tzedakah before or just after Yom Kippur. AJWS sent me an email saying,
Reflect Back: Fast Forward invites you to donate the “savings” from your fast—the money you would ordinarily spend on a day’s worth of food—to help combat hunger around the world.
AJWS fights hunger at its root causes. Donating the “savings” of your fast is far more effective than simply donating food, because it enables people in the developing world to feed themselves. Your “savings” will travel to communities in Africa, Asia and Latin and Central America to help promote sustainable farming, secure access to clean water and high-quality seeds, and protect land from degradation.
AJWS is a wonderful organization. I support them personally and if you feel so moved, I recommend that you do too.
May you have an easy and meaningful fast.
