Donate a Day

May 16 - 22, 2022


Tali’s Fund’s first annual Donate a Day was a week-long fundraiser, during which private practitioners from any industry chose a day, and donated some or all of the funds earned from that day to Tali’s Fund. We are so grateful to the private service providers and their supporters. Thanks to their work, care, and enthusiasm, we raised over $12,500!

We look forward to more Donate a Day fundraisers in the future!

Giving Tuesday

November 30th, 2021


Giving Tuesday, "the opening day of the giving season", is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday.

For Giving Tuesday 2021, Tali’s Fund shared a gift of support, hope and strength for the individuals and families coping with a child with cancer or any other hardship they might be facing.

Kim Doron (Tali’s Mother) performed this beautiful song ‘I Wish You Strength’ written by Jana Stanfield, and we dedicated it to all those in need of encouragement during difficult times. On Giving Tuesday, this song was our gift - a warm embrace to let others know that they are not alone.

We invite you to continue sharing this video… to reach out and SEND it to anyone you know who may welcome a comforting message of support and strength.
