I Have Reached My Starting Goal Of $3,000!

Money raised so far for                                  Diversify  Ice

I am overjoyed to say that I have reached my first goal of raising $3,000 for Diversify Ice!  Thanks to everyone who saw my mom’s Facebook posts, heard my D’var Torah at my bar-mitzvah, heard about my project from other people, or found my website in some way. Thanks to those who ordered a pendant, or donated to Diversify Ice directly.  I have decided to set a second goal for 2021. My next goal is to raise an additional $2,000 for a total of $5,000! This will continue to help The Diversify Ice Foundation in their mission to break financial and other types of barriers.  

Thank you also for helping raise awareness of the lack of diversity in skating.   I still see too few Black and brown figure skaters  skating in the rinks where I practice and compete. For  those of you new to my website, when you buy a pendant the net proceeds go to Diversify Ice. The money raised helps Black and brown figure skaters get resources they need to skate at the highest levels of U.S. figure skating.

  1. Congratulations on reaching your initial goal, Simon! Great work. I’ll spread the word in 2021 so that you can reach your next goal. Keep doing what you’re doing.
