Rabbi Benny Zippel, the extraordinary leader of Utah’s Chabad Lubavitch, has created a program called Project HEART (Hebrew Education for At Risk Teens) working with mostly students from out-of-state attending boarding schools for troubled kids in Utah. Project Heart is our cause of the week.
The Rabbi is seen here with one of the students, Nathan, he served. Nathan’s story is included in Your Mark On The World. We previously wrote about Rabbi Zippel, who is one of the most prominent religious leaders in Utah.
This week, we’ll donate $3 to Chabad Lubavitch for every Kindle version of Your Mark On The World sold on Amazon.com. What can you do to help?
The Congo Leadership Initiative (CLI), which we’ve covered before, is our “Cause of the Week.”
CLI is working to address the myriad problems in the Democratic Republic of The Congo, arguably the poorest country on the planet.
Nathaniel Houghton is a remarkable young social entrepreneur who has devoted himself full time to driving real social change in the Congo. Great Nonprofits recognizes CLI as one of its “Top-Rated” nonprofits.
CLI is presently running a fundraising campaign at StartSomeGood.com to help them fund their program to help train Congo’s next generation of leaders.
This week beginning November 5, 2012, we’ll donate $3 for every Kindle copy of Your Mark On The World sold on Amazon.com to support CLI.

Utah Food Bank: Our “Cause of the Week”
We’re kicking off our weekly program of choosing a cause with the Utah Food Bank. I try to volunteer for a couple hours each week at the Utah Food Bank. Each year, they collect and distribute over 30 million pounds of food. They provide the food to hungry families around the entire state, often working with local food pantries.
Visit UtahFoodBank.org to learn more or make a donation.
We’ll donate $3.00 to the Utah Food Bank this week for every copy of Your Mark On The World for the Kindle that we sell on Amazon.com.
