This is my story. 

Finally, I found the perfect girl. I proposed to her, and she said yes. It was a dream come true. That night, we would have the l’chaim.

I wore my best suit, a modest piece, and took the bus to the home of my aunt & uncle, who had agreed to host the simcha.After an hour of preparations, everything was in place. The rain began to pour outside but my heart was full. This was the moment I’d always dreamed of.

 

However, after guests began to pour in, and ‘mazal tovs’ abounded, there was something missing: my parents. ‘Have you seen mommy & daddy?’ I aksed my siblings. But they were at a loss.

 

‘They should have left already an hour ago,’ my sister said. Thunder rumbled, and I felt a pang of fear.

 

I checked my phone. 10 missed calls from my brother. That’s when I got the news.

 

My parents had been in a car full of supplies for the vort. The storm began and the roads were slippery. They rode along the highway, but the rain was so strong they didn’t see the truck veering out of control until it was too late. The brakes slammed, and their car skidded off the edge of a cliff.

 

My younger siblings were in the car. None of them survived.

 

As my brother told me the details, the sights and sounds of the party began to blur around me.  I was an orphan.

 

In the weeks that have followed, any savings my parents had have gone toward burying them, and finding a place for my remaining siblings to live. I have nothing to offer my kallah, no home to go to, no foundation for our future.

 

We applied for the Kupat Ha’Ir orphan wedding campaign, and were Baruch Hashem accepted. If this campaign can successfully raise the money here, we can get some help to start our new life.

 

This is just my story, but there are 29 other orphans like me, each with their own past, who are part of this program.

 

Out of their generosity, the Gedolei Yisroel have also gotten involved. Rav Chaim Kanievsky has given a bracha to all who donate to this campaign, that they should have simcha in their home. 

Rav Kanievsky suggests donors give $85 or more. 

The rest of the orphans and I are praying that you will open your hearts and help us. Only Hashem knows the loss, humiliation, and suffering we’ve all been through. And we are counting on you.

 

Thank you so much,

 

Anonymous Chassan*

Donations can also be made to Kupat Ha'Ir Foundation # 7031

The ultimate goal is to give each orphan $10k to start their new lives with some financial stability. This campaign page is part of a world-wide campaign (online/print, US/Israel, etc).

*The chassan in the story above is symbolic, not literal. Each of the 30 orphans has their own story of loss.
