In today’s fast-paced world where we spend an ever-increasing amount of time in front of a screen, the concept of personal contact is cherished. Charities have been quick to recognize this with many offering not only the opportunity to donate money but also to donate time and participate in an experience that enriches both the charity and the volunteer.GIFT (Give It Forward Today) is one such charity. Originally established in the UK in 2003, GIFT Israel, run by British-born Hannah Cohn, has been in operation for the past two years, during which time it has grown exponentially.
