  • Acts of Kindness

    Abby's Hope Project was the recipient of a generous grant from the Noam Stampfer Gemilut Chasadim grant committee. Read below to find out more about how Abby's friend, Sylvie, made this happen. "For my eighth grade Capstone Project, I applied for a grant to help me support Abby’s Hope Project.  At first, I planned a card-writing event to design and send handwritten cards to children in hospitals.  But when the coronavirus hit, that was no longer an option. Then I was going to send my classmates and friends supplies to make cards at their own houses, but as the rules got stricter around coronavirus, I also couldn’t do that because hospitals stopped accepting outside letters and packages. Even though both of my ideas were shut down, I was determined not to give up. I love what Abby is doing with Abby’s Hope Project and I really admire how she tries to find joy not only for herself, but also spread joy to others. I remember when we used to do gymnastics together, she was always so supportive and would cheer me on when I was scared to try new skills. When Abby started to get sick, I didn’t really know what was going on or what it meant. All I knew was that sometimes she had to sit out during gymnastics when she had a headache. And when my mom told me that she had to quit gymnastics, I was sad but I thought it would only be temporary until she got better. But after weeks turned into months and she hadn’t gotten better or returned to gymnastics, I knew it wasn’t just a sickness you can get over. My mom filled me in on the details. She told me Abby was visiting many hospitals and still didn’t have a diagnosis. I felt mad and sad that this could happen to such a wonderful girl, but I still didn’t really know what to do or how to help. When my mom showed me this wonderful organization that Abby started and I read more about it, I realized how lonely it can be to always be at hospitals and not be able to see friends. I knew I wanted to help bring joy to kids and teens in hospitals and I emailed Abby to see how I could help. That’s how I got the idea for this project. My mom had purchased some of the beautiful cards Abby had made.  When I realized my first two ideas wouldn’t work, I decided to lend my (and my sister’s) artistic talents to creating even more card designs and helping to sell them to raise funds for Abby’s Hope Project. I hope you will take this opportunity to buy some cards and write a handwritten letter to a friend who is in the hospital or to friends who are sheltering in place.  Handwritten letters can bring so much joy into people’s lives during this hard time. Thank you to Abby and to all the people that have helped her to grow into such a wonderful and inspiring person! I am so grateful to the Noam Stampfer Gemilut Chasadim grant committee who supported my initial idea and granted me the full amount I requested. When I told them the disappointing news about the cancelation of my card-writing event and shared with them my new idea, they said “absolutely” and shared with me an inspiring quote: “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” Teddy Roosevelt."
