Jewish Teens Aim to Create the World’s Largest Online Giving Circle Experience

The Jewish Teen Funders Network, in collaboration with BBYO, is set to launch the largest Jewish teen online giving experience this Sunday, March 29th in order to benefit those affected by the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.

Teens globally will be able to raise and allocate funds, showcasing their capacity to affect change in the world today.

Utilizing the new BBYO On Demand platform, they will host J-Serve, the international day of Jewish youth service. The day of online events is planned for Sunday, March 29th where teens from all over the world can attend workshops, partake in group projects, and fundraise for organizations that are doing work specifically to address the current COVID-19 crisis. The Jewish Teen Funders Network has worked to create an interactive, online giving experience where teens can join teams, fundraise and learn the importance of giving through our Jewish values.

A committee of teens worked together to research and select the four organizations that are addressing the spread and impact of COVID-19 near and far: Doctors Without Borders, JDC, Jewish Federations of North America, and Mazon. The percentage of allocation will be decided by teens during J-Serve Prime Time: A Worldwide Celebration of Service and Philanthropy (Sunday evening, March 29th) live on BBYO On Demand which concludes a full day of programming on the platform.

To donate to the cause, or participate in the fundraising efforts, visit the J-Serve giving hub.

J-Serve is a collaborative effort run by BBYO in partnership with Jewish Teen Funders Network, Good Deeds Day, Repair The World, and YSA’s Global Youth Service Day. The initiative is generously underwritten by The Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, among others.
