For over 30 years JNF UK has run Green Sunday – the UK’s first and biggest telethon raising funds for Israel. While we can’t run it this year, we are still working hard to raise money – including with our brand new Green PositiviTea campaign. For every hot drink sold at one of our partner outlets, we’re donating one pound to our appeal.
If you’ve already bought a drink – thank you! If you haven’t had a chance to do so yet, or if you’re interested in making a donation yourself, please carry on reading.
This year, our Green Sunday appeal is focusing on Israeli families who have been plunged into poverty due to the economic impact of the coronavirus. While the Israeli government is doing what it can, the truth is a young country cannot match the well-established welfare systems of the rest of the Western world.
The numbers speak for themselves. 151,300 families are struggling to get by, while 42,500 have fallen below the poverty line.
JNF UK’s national appeal is at the frontline of helping these families, with one-off payments that will tide them over until the economy has recovered. Our matched appeal means any donation you give will be doubled by us.
