Fundraising Component

During your POM Mission to Israel, you will be participating in a basic training exercise as part of the required fundraising component of the mission. It is an opportunity to learn about what the IDF's soldiers experience during their basic training as well as a fun, challenging and physical way to begin your mission to understanding the POM journey. Each participant is required to meet a minimum fundraising goal of $1,500.00 CDN. Your fundraising efforts will go towards our ultimate goal of raising $80,000 CDN; the cost for POM's 9-month long program which includes bringing one Unit of released IDF soldiers to Canada for one week of intensive group therapy.


Personalized Message/Donation Page

You will be given your own webpage, which includes a personalized message where friends, family and colleagues can donate to your fundraising effort.  Your message can include why you have chosen to participate in the POM Mission to Israel, what your fundraising goal is, a short blurb about Peace of Mind and what POM means to you and to the young men and women who participate in the program. 

Below is a sample story and sample "ask" email that you may copy and paste for your convenience:

Sample Ask Email:

Dear Friends and Family,

I will be participating in the Peace of Mind Mission to Israel from March 10th - 15th, 2019. As part of the mission, I will be participating in a basic training exercise in order to help raise funds for the Peace of Mind Organization. Our ultimate goal is to raise enough funds to bring one unit of released soldiers to Canada so that they can receive the emotional/psychological healing that they deserve.

Peace of Mind is a unique organization developed by METIV: the Israel Psychotrauma Centre. The program paves the way back to civilian life for young men and women who have served three years or more in high-risk combat units in the Israel Defense Forces. Different groups of discharged veterans are brought to communities around the world and are immersed in both therapy and community events during their stay. It is an honour to give back to those men and women who have given so much of themselves not only to their country, but also to those living in the Diaspora.
You can donate in the following ways:

  • Donate on the bottom of my page to make a secure online donation (your personal webpage link will go here)
  • You can donate with a cheque made payable to: "Peace of Mind" - 485 Douglas Avenue Toronto, ON M5M 1H6 
  • (be sure to reference my name!)
  • All donations over $18.00 will receive a charitable tax receipt
  • Better yet, join me in Israel as we learn about
  • the POM journey & meet/interact with past participants and their families!

Thank you so much for your support!
