The Mitzvah Heroes Fund, Inc. has been established by a number of “Hasidei Ziv”, students of Danny Siegel and followers and contributors of his Ziv Tzedakah Fund.
We want to carry on the important educational and philanthropic work that Danny has begun. Our intention is to perpetuate the same objectives that Danny and Ziv have always adhered to:
We believe that money can be used to make miracles happen: it can change people’s lives for the better, restore dignity, provide jobs, food, freedom, well-being for desperate people, and, most of all, offer hope.
Our primary interest is seeking out Mitzvah heroes, Good People making things happen, who — with a minimum of operational procedures and bureaucracy as well as a record of exceptional fiscal responsibility — make these things happen in a most striking manner. We realize that some ways to do Tikun Olam (Repairing the World) are too complex and beyond our reach. We consider the other simple and direct solutions – be they on the small, medium, or grand scale – to be our forte.
We are devoted to working with good people who have a vision of what is right and good and just. They have no personal agenda other than to benefit others. We want to learn from our Mitzvah heroes and relish in the opportunity to do so.
