Mitz­vah Day’s TV stars

The Jewish Chronicle - - Community -

YOUNG PEO­PLE from across the com­mu­nity will be sup­port­ing the an­nual Blue Peter ap­peal as part of Mitz­vah Day on Novem­ber 15.

They will be col­lect­ing old T-shirts and dec­o­rat­ing them for use as gowns, sav­ing on the cost of cor­rec­tive surgery for chil­dren in de­vel­op­ing na­tions with cleft palates.

Mitz­vah Day is a plat­form for good deeds within the Jewish or wider com­mu­nity and founder di­rec­tor Laura Marks sees the Blue Peter project as the per­fect col­lab­o­ra­tion. “For so many young peo­ple, Blue Peter is how they first be­come aware of the idea that char­ity can be fun.” To start the ball rolling, she is do­nat­ing the stock of green Mitz­vah Day T-shirts from last year.
