I am writing to urge all your readers, of any faith and of none, to consider giving just a few hours of their time this Sunday to support a local charity. This Sunday (November 16) is Mitzvah Day, literally meaning good deed day. It is a day when Jews up and down the country will give not their money, but a little bit of their time to help those less fortunate than themselves.
This Mitzvah Day over 10,000 volunteers will support the homeless, clean up a park, repaint a local charity office, give blood, pack clothes for the Ukraine, visit an old people's home, or do one of 200 good deeds.
Mitzvah Day enjoys the support not just of the whole Jewish community, but also Christian, Sikh and Muslim groups who are also involved in various projects across the country. There is so much going on in Camden, there is bound to be something which every one of your readers can do. To find out how to support Mitzvah Day, readers should go to www.mitzvahday.org.uk.
