In a recent interview on News Nation, our Co-founder and co-CEO, Ron Gutman, unveiled a groundbreaking initiative that he hopes will break the cycle of fear and provide a beacon of hope for those affected by the terror attacks in Israel. The focus? The Giving Hope debit card.
In the aftermath of the October 7th terror attacks in Israel, Ron immersed himself in understanding the needs of families directly impacted by these atrocities. The result was the creation of the Giving Hope debit card, a tangible solution designed to empower individuals to make their own choices in rebuilding their lives.
The Giving Hope card isn't just a piece of plastic; it's a lifeline loaded with funds that allow individuals to choose what they need most. In a matter of days, On/go for\Good transformed an idea into a reality, providing a real debit card that recipients can use for their immediate necessities. This approach not only speeds up the recovery process but also injects a sense of dignity into the rebuilding efforts.
Among the communities identified for support, the kibbutz Nir Oz stands out as one of the hardest-hit areas. Ron shared the stories of survivors like Gil Hazut, who exemplify resilience and determination in the face of tragedy.
The kibbutz lost more than a quarter of its population, and many hostages remain in Gaza. On/go for\Good aims to be a catalyst for rebuilding, not just physical structures, but also the hope and vision for a better future. Gil and others are not just survivors, they are architects of a new beginning, and On/go for\Good is committed to supporting them every step of the way.
Ron emphasized that On/go for\Good's mission goes beyond providing financial assistance. It's about breaking the vicious cycle of fear perpetuated by terrorists. The Giving Hope card becomes a tool to transform fear into a virtuous cycle of hope.
As Ron expressed in the interview, terrorists aim to create fear not only in Israel and Gaza but worldwide. On/go for\Good's response is a call to action—by providing the means for people to rebuild, we can collectively shift the narrative from fear to hope.
Join On/go for\Good in breaking the cycle. Donate Now and be a part of the movement to create a virtuous cycle of hope for those affected by terror attacks. Together, we can turn the tide and build a future rooted in resilience, compassion, and, most importantly, hope.
