donating to refugees

There are a lot of families who are now refugees because of the tragedy that has befallen northern Israel. We appreciate the donations that we have gotten and are encouraging people to continue to donate to this very worthy cause.

We are not a charity organization, and there is no tax benefit, but I guarantee that 100% of your donation will go to directly to refugees (and not only to us, there are people much worse off). I am looking into selling "Rock of Galilee" tee-shirts (This was doc wife's idea), as a fund raiser for this noble cause. Leave a comment if you are interested. The more people interested the sooner it will be set up.

I'd be happy to buy a rock of galilee t-shirt. :)
By the way, I'm pasting info here that I've put on a couple other blogs as well:

Maybe this will be helpful for those wanting to leave the North for some respite: I’m on a Yahoo group:, where individuals publicize their vacant homes (all over Israel, including Eilat) for rent. I’ve contacted homeowners to ask if they are willing to let people from the North temporarily use their homes for free or at a greatly reduced rate, and now I’m just waiting to hear back from them. I’m sure there will be a response; people are looking for ways to help. It takes a few days to get approved to join the group, so if you’re in a hurry (which would not be surprising), you can email me at monaco316 at yahoo dot com, or visit my blog at
