The Tripawds Foudation was recently approached by Homer’s dad who asked if we could assist with his son’s bar mitzvah project. Of course, we were honored. Read Leo’s message below to find out how you can help support Tripawds, and get a free cookbook!
Leo’s Bar Mitzvah Project Honors Homer
My name is Leo Shack and I am a thirteen year old boy, and in February 2016 I will become a bar mitzvah. The becoming of a bar mitzvah in Judaism is a coming of age ceremony.
For my mitzvah project (an act of loving kindness) I will be creating a cookbook with a compilation of recipes from my community but I need your help. I am looking for you to share with me some of your family’s favorite recipes that will be put into a cookbook. Why a cookbook you’re thinking? I’m making a cookbook because I love to cook and because food is such a big part of many cultures, especially Judaism. In my family I am learning to cook the food my grandparents and great grandparents made.
Once I have collected all of the recipes I will organize them into a cookbook, which I will distribute to anyone who either submitted a recipe or who donated to my favorite charity, Tripawds.
I chose Tripawds because last February my dog Homer was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a bone cancer, and had to get his front leg amputated. Because of the cancer, Homer had to go through four cycles of chemo therapy. He struggled to adjust to the amputation. Thankfully Tripawds was a great source of recommendations and information which helped us better meet Homer’s needs. Over the summer he went to rehab and started walking on an underwater treadmill; slowly Homer started to recover and now he is full of energy.
Hopefully my project, and your donations, will help Tripawds continue supporting animals and their families.
