**Thanks for the overwhelming response - help us keep going!!!**

Thanks to your contributions and shares on Facebook we have surpassed our initial goal but we can help more IDF soldiers' wives, fiancees and girlfriends with more contributions. 

           ** PLEASE HELP US STRETCH OUR GOAL **

Women of Israel - thank you for the strength you exemplify. You give us feelings of pride and we the supporters of Israel support you.

As Operation Protective Edge rages on, tens of thousands of heroic IDF soldiers are battling terrorists while their families and loved ones await their safe return.

While the soldiers serve on the front, many of them facing arduous missions and life-and-death situations, their wives, fiancées and girlfriends on the home front endure tremendous stress.

We are Ariella, Tamar and Daphne. As wives and fiancées of active combat soldiers serving in Operation Protective Edge, we know this stress all too well and we want to help our sisters to alleviate the indescribable tension in any small way we can.

So please help us support the loved ones of our IDF soldiers by sending them a small experience that will help brighten their day in these trying and difficult times.

What We Need & How You Can Help

The wives, fiancées and girlfriends of IDF soldiers on the front line need a way to break the constant stress they are under. With your help we will provide them with gift certificates for free manicures, massages and breakfasts.

This is a sample letter that will be sent to these very special & strong women with their voucher...

"Dear IDF wives/fiancées and girlfriends,
Israel today is at war which translates into difficult times both on the front lines and on the home front. Our hearts are with our soldiers. We fully support them and firmly believe that they will achieve their goals to the best of their ability - and without further injury.

We have spent time thinking how to contribute and make a difference to the home front; to raise morale and give "chizuk" to the wives and families of our soldiers. With that in mind, we are gifting you a few hours of "time-off" as a "pick-me-up". Firstly, in appreciation of your sacrifices; for the great strength you are demonstrating and for the steadfastness needed during this period.

So...that you can put your worries aside - even if it is just for a few hours- to enjoy, to relax with friends or family. Women of Israel, thank you for the strength you exemplify. You awaken within us feelings of pride and we, the supporters of Israel support you!

We pray that your loved ones return home safely and soon without injury.
With admiration and respect..."

As a supporter of this campaign, you get the satisfaction of having reached out and helped someone under duress and stress, and providing them with an uplifting experience to help brighten a difficult day. 

The Impact

Our project gives you the opportunity to do something to help our soldiers' loved ones in their time of emotional need. We are working with vendors and will distribute our gift certificates all over the country so that recipients can redeem them locally for their greatest comfort and convenience.
