I am Gabriel Kaufman
I will have my Bar Mitzvah on September 6, 2014. As I prepare for this very special day, I wanted to create a Mitzvah project that was meaningful and included something I love to do. I thought it would be great to use my love of Origami, and do whatever I could to help STOP CANCER and The Marni Fund.
Our family created a fund with STOP CANCER in honor of my Aunt, Marni Levine, after she passed away from Breast Cancer in 2006. Each year, at The STOP CANCER Run/Walk, I set up a station called Gabe A Gami, Fold For A Cure. I’ve made and sold Pink Paper Origami Breast Cancer Ribbons that walkers can wear during the event and even decorate in honor of their team or someone they love.
