WHAT IS GREEN SUNDAY?
For over 30 years JNF UK has run Green Sunday – the UK’s first and biggest telethon raising funds for Israel. During Green Sunday, Israel supporters of all ages come together under one roof, and get on the phones to raise money for JNF UK projects in Israel. Our mammoth fundraiser, which takes place once a year has become synonymous within the Jewish Community, who during Green Sunday know that they should expect a call!
HOW DID IT START?
The iconic Green Sunday telethon was established in Manchester over thirty years ago. A JNF committee raising money to plant trees in Israel brought together volunteers from the community to make telephone calls during the Sunday closest to Tu Bishvat (the festival of trees).
Decades later, Green Sunday is still going strong, though it’s not trees we’re raising money for — nowadays JNF UK raises funds for vital projects in the Negev which directly touch the lives of many thousands of people.
WHAT ARE WE RAISING MONEY FOR THIS YEAR?
This Green Sunday is taking place on Sunday 19 February- Sunday 26 February. During this week, we will be raising funds to renovate 44 kindergartens across the South of Israel, including two for children with special needs. Click here to read more.
HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?
We are looking for volunteers to help with this year’s fundraising event. All we need is just TWO hours of your time between Sunday 19 February – 26 February to make a difference to the lives of over 1,500 children now and to thousands more for years to come.
Food will be provided and there will be an activity room for little ones. The atmosphere will be electric and you’re guaranteed to go home with a real sense of accomplishment.
If you want to change a life in two hours, join our fun, dedicated and exciting team and play your part in securing the future of Israel.
