Mia Silverman’s Kids of Courage Bat Mitzvah Project

Mia Silverman’s Kids of Courage Bat Mitzvah Project

For Mia Silverman’s Bat Mitzvah project, she is raising money and awareness for Kids of Courage, a cause very dear to her heart. Kids of Courage has changed her cousin Danny’s life. This extraordinary non-profit organization makes dreams come true for children and young adults who are living with life-threatening illnesses, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. She has reached her initial goal of $3500 hoping to get to $4000!

We asked Mia a few questions about her Mitzvah Project.

MM: Can you give us details of your Mitzvah Project?
MS: 
Many of my friends and I are lucky enough to attend sleep-away camp and have wonderful experiences. My cousin Danny has a life threatening disability, which requires daily medical care and assistance. Danny is unable to go to a traditional camp program or teen tour because of his complex health issues. For the last 6 years, Kids of Courage has given Danny the opportunity to have amazing adventures in a social and safe way by offering one on one counselor assistance and a full team of doctors and nurses to provide round the clock medical support. Danny has been to San Francisco, San Diego, Dallas and Orlando and has had non-stop fun for that week. I want to raise money for Kids of Courage so another lucky “Courager” can have a one week teen tour/camp like experience and forget about their various diagnoses and just be typical campers!

MM: In your own words, what does it mean to you to do a Mitzvah Project for your Bat Mitzvah? 
MS : To me, a Mitzvah Project is doing kind acts for others, not for pay or a reward but because you truly want to do it. Being able to do a Mitzvah Project gives me the opportunity to think how I can give back to people who need help.

MM: How long and how can people donate to this charity?
MS: My Bat Mitzvah is on Saturday, September 23. I have reached  $3500 hoping to raise $4000. I want to thank so many of my friends and family who have already contributed. I have a GoFundMe page and people can always donate to the Kids of Courage organization or visit their site at www.kidsoc.org.

MM: What are you doing to spreading the word?
MS:
For further information about Kids of Courage, you can call them at 888-954-3762. You can also private message my dad Rob Silverman through Facebook.

We thank Mia and her family for sharing her great Bat Mitzvah Project with our readers and wish her much success in reaching her goal!
