100% Donation to families in need

Chag Sameach is a nonprofit organization which helps families in need during the main two holiday season’s in Israel – Rosh Hashana and Passover.
Our guiding principal in Chag Sameach is donating 100% of the money to the families.
The donation is delivered by a ‘chargeable card’ as food stamps, usable in all the big grocery store chains, which enable the family to buy their holiday meal. The food stamps are blocked for tobacco and alcohol products.
We locate the families with the help of our partners, the welfare departments in municipalities.
The delivery is executed by the organization’s staff and activists, who give our the card’s at the families homes and wish them a happy holiday in person.
Every year, the founders and partners of Chag Sameach, take a true initiative and volunteer to collect donations from friends, co-workers, families and businesses for the families, without receiving any compensation of profit, but the wonderful feeling of giving. 100% of what is collected goes straight to the families, nothing is used for the org’s needs (salaries, fuel, advertising, rent etc.)
Join us in doing good and feeling good! Any donation can help another family in need celebrate the upcoming holiday with respect.
A little over a decade ago, while we were young students, we decided we want to give back and help out families in need to respectfully celebrate the Rosh Hashana Holiday. So, we did what we knew back then, and that is to pick up the phone and call up popular non-profit organizations, with the intention of donating a sum of money we would hope will reach the families. After being transferred from a call center representative to another, and to the head of the department, we realized some of our money is not going directly to the families, and there might be a few stops on the way…
We decided we want to make sure 100% of our money is going to the family, no “agency fees” whatsoever. So, we didn’t give up. We contacted a friend who was a social worker in one of the municipalities and simply asked him for a name and address of a family he knows firsthand is in need.
Our next questions was “what do you really buy for a holiday meal?” and here our awesome parents helped us make a detailed list, and we were off to the store to buy the products.
We were ready! With a festive package in hand, we headed to the family’s home, to give them the produce and wish them a happy holiday. It truly felt incredible.
The next year, we did just the same, only this time some of our good friends joined and we managed to help our more families. We continue to do this every year since, 100% contribution with 100% of our love.

Events and Activities
During the last decade, we’ve developed a great collaboration model with the local municipalities, which lead us to the right families in need, and lean on the existing resources to produce our fundraising events. So out of 100% resources and 100% active volunteers, we manage to create no less then exactly 100% donations.
So far, with the generous help of the municipalities, we produced some successful fundraising events such as: Keren Peles concert hosted by Ron Shachar, a Dudu Tassa Concert, a Standup Marathon and more. All donations, no exceptions, go directly to the families in need.
