Team Blue Card

January 5, 2015

Dear Friends / Queridos Amigos,

It has been a year since I last reached out to you in support of this important cause.

More than 75,000 Holocaust survivors live in the United States today, and nearly a third of those live beneath the poverty level. As these men and women age, they are plagued with the consequences of surviving the most devastating conditions imaginable, including poor nutrition and no medical care.

Many survivors came to this country after World War II and worked in menial jobs. Tiny pensions from those jobs, social security, and Medicaid simply cannot keep up with the financial needs of this most vulnerable population. Most of them never received any pensions or payments administered by The Claims Conference. They are frequently desperate for uncovered expenses such as dental care, hearing aids, and transportation to doctors.

After all they have suffered, these men and women SHOULD NOT have to chose between paying for food or paying for medicine. Dignity was forcibly taken from them during the Holocaust, and The Blue Card ensures that its clients don’t lose their dignity again, in their last years.

Once again, I will be running the Miami Half Marathon in partnership with The Blue Card organization to raise money for Miami-Dade’s Holocaust Survivors. You were all incredible partners with your support last year and I would feel honored to have you be a part of this effort again.

Please visit my fund raising site [CLICK HERE!] and help bring dignity to the survivors in need.
