v2stamp_project

For her Mitzvah Project, Natalie walked in The National Kidney Foundation’s annual Philadelphia Kidney Walk.  She asked friends and family to sponsor her for this walk and ended up raising over $7000! Natalie also volunteered her time as a greeter at the Philadelphia Kidney Ball in March of 2013 and hopes to do that annually.

Natalie created a bracelet honoring the National Kidney Foundation and gave them out at the reception to help raise awareness about kidney disease

 Some advice from Mom Leslie:
“It doesn’t hurt to start early so that you can feel somewhat relaxed towards the end!  Staying organized is key and then as you get really close, sit back, relax and enjoy every minute…seriously!!!”
