Can you feel the love?

by Rachel Eisen, Director of Annual Giving

I wish you could see my inbox right now.

Actually, my inbox is totally nuts, so I shouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy, but I wish you could feel what my inbox is feeling right now, because it’s feeling a whole lotta love.
Love for three really extraordinary people – Carrie Bornstein and Elisha and Sam Gechter – who Mayyim Hayyim is honoring on May 15, at our annual benefit event.

In case you didn’t already know, Mayyim Hayyim is throwing a party on Monday, May 15  to raise money for our work by honoring Carrie, Elisha, and Sam, for their dedication to Mayyim Hayyim’s mission and for raising their voices to spread the word about us. And it should come as no surprise that people are really excited. Really, really excited. I’ve got donations in their honor pouring in from people around the country, even people who can’t attend the event. I’ve got groups of people coming together to raise money for bigger blessings in the program book. I’ve got a fabulous host committee whose members are eager to help me think of fun, creative ideas for the event.

It’s all because of the honorees and people’s love for them, and for Mayyim Hayyim. You see, Carrie, Elisha, and Sam, they’ve got fans. And if you don’t know them yet, I guarantee you’ll be a fan once you hear their stories.

I invite you to read a little about them, and then join us on May 15 to hear, in person, their stories of why Mayyim Hayyim has been so meaningful in their lives. Come out on May 15, sing and dance with Neshama Carlebach, hear why everyone loves Carrie, Elisha, and Sam – and why they love Mayyim Hayyim – and I promise you’ll be feeling just as much love for them as my inbox.

Rachel Eisen is Mayyim Hayyim’s Director of Annual Giving. While her inbox may be out of control, she’s thrilled to be working on an event that honors three of the most deserving and amazing people she knows—people who live the lives she aspires to.
