Save a Child’s Heart, Surfing, Independence Hall, Shuk in Yafo

iceisrael August 4, 2016

Waking up this morning, all I could think about was being able to bring a smile to someone’s face with the smallest acts of giving. Being at Save A Child’s Heart showed me that there are people in this world who would do anything to help someone else in need. Knowing that I was a part of changing these kid’s lives, gave me a sense of happiness and thankfulness for creating joy in their lives and having an appreciation for what I have. Soon after we went to the grocery store and were given money to create a menu for our lunches today. Each group was assigned a certain item and together we created a delicious lunch. After we finished we got a once in a lifetime of experience of being taught how to surf on the beach in Tel Aviv. Even though I wasn’t very good at it, and fell many times, I had such a fun time with everyone. We then went to the Independence Hall and learned about the true and rich history of the state of Israel and how it was founded. We then made our way to the old Yafo shuk and we were able to enjoy free time with everyone and explore the shops and different cultures of Tel Aviv.
