4 people - from different parts of Israel - but all suffering from the same problem:
How to keep their business running during the challenging days of Corona?
Yitzchak – Owns a transportation company in Betar – “My business built up nicely and I recently bought a new 20 seater van so I could serve even more tourists… and then came Corona. No tourists during Pesach, Lag Ba’Omer, over the summer and Sukkot – all times when I am usually very busy. I make payments on my vehicle every month plus insurance and was collapsing until Shmuel Sackett of The Dream Raffle helped keep me going. It was a gift from heaven.”
Itamar – Owns a computer business in Peduel – “A crazy thing happened to me during Corona. Because of Zoom, people needed to buy computers – which should have HELPED my business – but I run a small operation and did not have a large inventory. Orders were coming in but I could not fill them. My suppliers were sending all the computers to the big computer stores in Israel and I was literally left with nothing. A grant from The Dream Raffle literally saved my business.”
Abba – A musician from Immanuel with his own band – “I love my job because I get paid to make people happy and dance! Weddings, Bar-Mitzvahs and other special occasions are what I do… but for the last 9 months – nothing. Who hires a band today? Just a few days ago, I received a phone call from Shmuel Sackett who told me that he had funds to distribute from The Dream Raffle to help me during this difficult period. I couldn’t believe it! And then I realized what Hashem planned. I made others happy all these years so now it was time for people to make ME happy… and they did. Thank you Dream Raffle!”
Itamar – Owns a printing and promotional company in Jerusalem – “We have close to 20 employees and all of them were in danger of losing their job. Our main clients are in Israel’s cultural industry; the theatre, concerts, big public events etc… but all of these have been cancelled since February. Jobs were stopped in the middle and things have not been easy. Out of nowhere, I received a call from Shmuel Sackett of The Dream Raffle and he came to present me with a check. Our business is staying open!”
