Skate for Sderot

The residents of Sderot , a small town situated on the border of Israel and the Gaza strip, were living in fear. In a region known as a hotbed for international controversy, international politics were overshadowing the daily rocket fire and air raid sirens going off in the town. Skate for Sderot, the brainchild of TFTW founder Joe Teplow, was conceived as a way to provide the citizens of Sderot with the safety and humanitarian aid they required while still having a lot of fun. Organized as a charity roller hockey tournament, Skate for Sderot required participants to raise a minumum amount of donation dollars in order to enter, and then gave out prizes for the members of the winning teams. The tournament later expanded to JV and Varsity divisions, and is currently held annually in New York City.

Rock on Israel

Hosting your own benefit concert in school is quite an endeavor. But the payoff is incredible. A group of teens partnered up with a few local organizations to host a live concert to benefit a number of Israeli charities. Over 150 of their friends and neighbors showed up for night of fun. At the event T-shirts, popcorn, and cotton candy were sold, to enhance the festive atmosphere. Charity and fun were mixed into the same incredible evening.

Grade Text

Grade Vs. Grade Soccer tournament was a project organized by two freshman from SAR High School in Riverdale New York. "After reading article about young Israelis playing soccer with Palestinians, I was inspired to use the sport for something good" states Jonny Nulman one of the projects organizers. Avery Teplow the other project organizer explained his thoughts on the tournament," I knew that soccer is growing in popularity in our school, and if we took our planning seriously we could really make a difference". The project directors decided that the tournament would be most successful if they had each grade form a team. "The intergrade competitiveness really gave the tournament a kick start and fueled its successes, said Jonny. Jonny.and Avery along with the teens for the world staff planned a very successful school wide soccer tournament to benefit Hadassah medical center in Israel. Over 60 people attended the event and concession were sold for extra fundraising by Freshman Louis Rosin.

The response from the players was very positive. The sophomores emerged champions after a nail biting final game against the freshmen, winning the prize of donuts for their entire grade.
