The men and women of the IDF are always on duty and always ready to put their lives on the line to protect the State of Israel. We at Standing Together understand the importance of the State of Israel for Jews around the globe. That is exactly why our IDF support program for people who come to Israel for a visit is all about building bridges. While most people coming from the US, AU or the UK cannot really understand what soldiers in the IDF go through every day, it is clear that they feel a tremendous connection as well as a desire to say thank you to IDF soldiers for doing their job.
The way it works is very simple. We get a call from a family who is planning a trip to Israel and who showed interest in doing something special for IDF soldiers. We set them up with our online crowd funding campaign platform so that they can raise money for their project. Once in Israel, we take them out to an IDF base where they choose from several options that include sponsoring:
- A platoon BBQ for soldiers who just came back from operations or training.
- Operational Winter gear packs for an entire platoon
- tactical gear for elite units
- Water packs and under armor clothing for the summer months
- Utility backpacks for an entire unit
- a combination of any of the options above.
How awesome is a night out with the IDF?
