We couldn’t have made it this far without you!The Florida Holocaust Museum’s 8th Annual Trunks of Hope campaign has been extended through October 7th due to Hurricane Ian. The FHM believes that educating our children about the past is the first step to creating a world without hate.Thanks to the generosity of Amy and Michael Southard, through their foundation Crofton Cares, donations made to the Annual Trunks of Hope campaign for the last few years have been matched dollar for dollar up to $25,000.
Your gift to this campaign by October 7will be matched again this year!
These Teaching Trunks are essential for school-age children to learn about the Holocaust and other forms of intolerance and prejudice. Unfortunately, Holocaust denial and distortion have been on the rise as well as antisemitic incidents, not only in the Tampa Bay area but around the country. Antisemitism and other forms of hatred are best dispelled through education. These Trunks offer the means necessary to equip our youth to recognize and reject any form of bias.
Additionally, these Teaching Trunks encourage our young people to become Upstanders rather than Bystanders.Donate Today!Last year, The FHM’s Teaching Trunks traveled throughout the state of Florida reaching approximately 10,000 students. Additionally, The FHM’s trunks traveled to six states outside of Florida, reaching over 1,000 additional students.
Holocaust education has never been more important. Please make your gift today knowing that it will be matched by Crofton Cares through October 7. Thank you very much for investing in Holocaust education for our youth!Please make your secure online donation below.
Making your gift a recurring gift each month will have even more impact.
This is a moment in history when we need the lessons that Holocaust Survivors have shared with us – lessons of resilience and hope. Thank you for being a part of our #TrunksofHope campaign.
