HONEY FROM THE HEART FUNDRAISER
It's time to launch the Honey From the Heart Fundraiser again this year! We are selling honey via a third party for Rosh Hashanah. Forty percent of the sales go to profit Habonim directly, and the other monies collected over cost go to benefit Israel's Hodayot youth village, part of World ORT Kadima Mada (Science Journey.) Last year we sold 146 jars of honey!
Shipping is free on orders placed before August 5th.
