Mitzvah Project: Photos4AKure

When Tara Silberg was 10 years old, we wrote a Mitzvah Project profile story about her MS bike ride.

Last year she did her first annual Race To The Top Of The Rock for MS (Multiple Sclerosis). She has also donated her hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths in memory of her late grandmother, Carol (pictured left).  Her ponytail and 6 others were put together to make a wig for a woman with cancer.

 

 

But after doing all that, she still felt it wasn’t enough. So now, only weeks before her Bat Mitzvah, she has built a Website, Photos4aKure, a non-profitable organization that will donate 100% of the profits to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

On her Website, you can find dozens of beautiful photos taken by a variety of people, including Tara.

All photos cost $20 to $30. When you purchase a picture, it will be matted or framed, 5 x 7; 8 x 10 or 11 x 14. Her goal is to raise at least $1,000.00.

Update: Tara Silberg, our MitzvahMarket.com blogger is a finalist in L’Oreal’s “Why STEM Is Cool” contest. This is a national contest that only 32 kids (ages 13-18) made it to the public voting phase. STEM is an acronym for Science Technology Engineering and Math.

The voting which determines the winner starts today March 18, 2013 and runs for 1 week. If she wins, Tara has pledged to donate the $2,500 cash prize to cancer research in memory of her grandmother who passed away of breast cancer back in 2006. If you have a minute, would be great if you could help by voting for her. To vote, you just need to go to the website http://forgirlsinscience.org/compete-achieve and click on Voting. The video is called A Technologic Hope by Tara Silberg. People are allowed to vote once a day so any votes can help.
