Charles Bronfman, Ron Hershco & Kars For Kids – All Giving $

Eric Rosenthal, founder and executive director of a pioneering international human rights advocacy organization is the 2013 recipient of The Charles Bronfman Prize, and $100,000 to go towards his work.  Donors, like Bronfman and Ron Hershco who recently gave to a school are increasingly giving 6 figure gifts to philanthropists.

Disability Rights International (DRI) which Rosenthal founded is based upon Jewish values of helping kids in need.

“He has pushed the issue of institutional segregation of those with disabilities to the forefront, giving new face to the social justice and human rights movements. He is living Jewish values to global effect, and inspiring others to take notice and action,” said James D. Wolfensohn, former President of the World Bank Group, on behalf of the international panel of Prize judges who selected Rosenthal.

“The Jewish principle from the Torah – Do not oppress the stranger, because you were strangers in the land of Egypt – has been very powerful in my life,” said Rosenthal.

Kars For Kids gives cars – others give money. So important to simply give.
