My Cause My Community - Anna Zipursky

“I started my Bat Mitzvah fund because I don’t want any kid to miss out on going to BB Camp if their family can’t afford to send them. I look forward to it every year because I get to spend a summer with my friends. I’ve learned life skills and learned how to work as part of a team—and I really like the overnights. With my Bat Mitzvah fund, I want to help other kids go to camp, too. BB is my second home!”
