How do I create and promote my webpage?
You can sign up and create a personal webpage to raise money for a specific program, or contact a Go Mitzvah! representative to create your own, original camp event. Promote your webpage through email, fliers, bake sales or sporting competitions. You can be as creative as you’d like.
I’m old (like, you know, 20) can I still participate in Go Mitzvah!?
Yes, the Go Mitzvah! master’s division is open to all ages. Some members have biked, run marathons, and competed in triathlons, to raise support for Chai Lifeline. While personal camp sponsorships are limited to the bnai mitzvah division, lots of people join in memory of a loved one, or just for fun.
What happens if I don’t meet my fundraising goal?
Participants who do not meet their fundraising goals are not personally responsible to make up the difference. You may even qualify for a different sponsorship, depending on the amount actually raised. The mitzvah, of course, is yours to keep! All you have to do is try your best.

*Camp Simcha is named in memory of Dr. Samuel Abraham and Camp Simcha Special is named in memory of Zvi Dovid Obstfeld
