Hanukah Day 6

Good Morning!  By the time we lit our Chanukiah (menorah) and got the kids to bed last night, I was a little tired and I guess spacey.  Sorry...

Here is the Maccabeats Chanukah song for this year, Miracle.  As you watch the video, you will notice references to the Miracle Match Campaign.  This is being done through Gift of Life.  This is a great organization, trying to help find bone marrow and stem cell matches for people with Leukemia, cancer and other hard to treat diseases.  My husband worked for them and would travel around the country helping and caring for the amazing people who took time out of their lives to donate a part of themselves to save another.  What is specifically important about this organization is that it is getting the word out in the Jewish community.  You are more likely to match with someone with a similar background to yours.  The more members of the Jewish community to register, the more people can be treated.  The test is a simple swab of your mouth and is not painful at all.  If you haven't done so already, getting swabbed could save someone's life, and there is minimal interruption to your life.

Happy Chanukah!
