    Every shirt printed with the story of the cause, on the inside
    by your heart, so you carry it with you and represent it
    with pride wherever you go!

    The Story

    Our goal is to ensure that every family in the Southern Israeli towns of Sderot and Netivot have food for the upcoming Jewish New Year and holidays!
    The nearly two -month-long war on Israel’s Southern border with the Gaza Strip, in which Hamas fired over 3,000 terror rockets toward Israel, has taken its toll on local residents. 97% of children suffer from trauma, and the inability to work and function normally left many families and small businesses in dire financial circumstances
    With the Jewish New Year and holidays approaching, Young Israel in Israel together with NU Campaign decided to do something! We want to show our brethren in the South, the unsung heroes of Israel, that We Stand With Them and that they are not alone!
    We bring you #MyHeartIsDownSouth campaign, where for every shirt you pledge, we donate a food package to a family in need, “Starting” in the cities of Sderot and Netivot. Together with local organizations, community leaders, food suppliers and your support we will work to ensure that no resident goes hungry.
    Every shirt is printed with a unique message on the inside, by your heart, that highlights the importance of Jewish responsibility towards one another. This remains in your heart … wherever you go! By using local suppliers we also aim to bolster local economies.
    Join us in this effort! Show Your Support for the residents of Southern Israel by Pledging a Shirt Now!
    To get involved, you can: Pledge a shirt; Share the campaign page with your friends; Join the campaign on Facebook; Start your own Support South campaign and order shirts for your school, organization, youth movement or community; Raise funds to send more food packages to residents of the South.
    All shirts are made of high quality Dri-Fit material (Crew-neck, Royal Blue only) and are shipped worldwide. Please include size/s shirts you want & shipping information
    Together we can make a difference for the people of the South!

    Message Printed By The Heart

    “All of Israel are guarantors for one another” – Shavuot 39a. A group of people were travelling in a boat. One of them took a drill and began to drill a hole beneath himself. His companions said to him: "Why are you doing this?" Replied the man: "What concern is it of yours? Am I not drilling under my own place?" Said they to him: "But you will flood the boat for us all!" - Quoted in Midrash Rabbah, from the teachings of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai We the Jewish people are in the boat of life together – responsible for each other in times of need and joy! As rockets reign down on our brethren in the South of Israel, crippling normal life and wreaking poverty and trauma on its residents, it's our duty to step in and help where we can. The purchase of this shirt sends a food package to people in need in the cities of Sderot and Netivot, those most affected by Gazan terror, to ensure that no one goes hungry this Jewish New Year and festivals.
