At the time of posting, the Argan of the Negev campaign has just a little more than 24 hours to go, and can still use a lot of help. Although our intrepid pioneers assure us that they're a lot closer to the goal than their Indiegogo page indicates, there is much to be done and I'm sure that every little bit makes a big difference.
I was happy to see the Rappeports highlighted in a recent issue of Mishpacha magazine, and I really hope that this project works out well - for them, and for us in partaking in some way in the cultivation of the Holy Land.
I just saw that a popular TV show that had a cult following before its cancellation raised 5 million dollars during its campaign to raise funds for a movie budget on Kickstarter - its intended goal was a measly $2 million, which was contributed in an insanely short time (the first 15 hours or so). While we may not be as numerous as the fans of that silly show, we can dig deep into our pockets for a worthy cause.
Again, to donate visit their page on Indiegogo; for more info on the Argan tree, the Negev, and the Rappeports, visit their site here.
