Sterling Tyler, a photographer from California recently photographed a special Bat Mitzvah girl named Nicole who used her Mitzvah Project, “Pennies For Peace” as her theme. Please read below all about this special organization.
The invitation incorporated the peace sign beautifully in lime green and purple and was created by Candi Stern Stationers, email@example.com.
Although it’s sometimes hard to come up with a theme, we love how Nicole combined her Mitzvah Project into the elements of her Bat Mitzvah celebration.
For her Bat Mitzvah project, Nicole participated in Pennies for Peace, a fund raising program dedicated to improving education in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Following that theme, the room decor featured peace signs and colorful florals. Marcia McCann of McCann Florist designed many of the wonderful decor elements along with Nicole’s mom.
The place card table had a beautiful arrangement and a letter from the Bat Mitzvah girl about her project.
The colors through the reception were purple and lime green. The “peace” sign centerpieces were made out of twigs

The Party Photo Studio was a hit, parents and kids decked themselves out with props for some fun, wacky photos.
Guests went home with 5×7 keepsakes that were instantly retouched and printed on-site

Nicole had the opportunity to meet author Greg Mortenson who wrote, “Three Cups of Tea.” She was very inspired by his passion and cause. Pennies For Peace builds all girls’ schools in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Nicole attends The Archer School for Girls, an all girls school in Los Angeles, which makes this cause more meaningful to her. She feels very fortunate to live in a free country and have the opportunity to go to a private school in Los Angeles. Raising money for this organization is a way for her to give back. She made and sold organic chocolate covered pretzels to raise money for Pennies For Peace. The money Nicole made will fund the schools with supplies, books and teacher salaries. The girls who attend these schools have the opportunity to become leaders, doctors, lawyers because people donate money which gives them the opportunity to be educated.
Thank you for sharing your celebration and terrific Mitzvah Project with our readers.
