JERUSALEM, June 20, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- Heart to Heart is proud to announce its partnership with Galilee Nutritionals, a leading Israeli-based nutritional company to save lives in Israel.
Heart to Heart is an innovative grassroots virtual blood donation program that exclusively supports Israel's national blood bank, which needs to increase its capacity and supply to prepare for every emergency. As Israel's population nears 8 million, and with the need for Israel to maximize and protect its blood supply, Heart to Heart is an important way for Christians to bless Israel and support the people of the Holy Land. "Since all blood in Israel is donated voluntarily, and the expenses to sustain a steady supply of blood are ever increasing as the population and needs grow, Heart to Heart will underwrite these costs and provide extra funds for the future," Heart to Heart Director Jonathan Feldstein said.
"We're especially proud and grateful to have Galilee Nutritionals join us as a partner, complementing their vision to provide products that promote health and quality of life to our lifesaving program," Feldstein added.
David Hart, CEO of Galilee Nutritionals, (www.galileenutritionals.com) said, "I want Galilee Nutritionals to be an organization that blesses Israel and blesses others. That's why we're committed to tithing our profits to Heart to Heart for the next three months, and allowing our customers to choose a Christian charity in the United States to which they can direct other tithing afterward, including Heart to Heart. Maintaining Israel's blood supply touches all Israelis, and I can think of no more important program to support."
For a $100 donation, a person can save three lives in Israel. "For people looking for a meaningful way to bless Israel, save lives, and fulfill the biblical mandate of Genesis 12:3, a virtual blood donation is a way to accomplish three goals," Feldstein added.
Heart to Heart is looking forward to expanding partnerships with like-minded businesses, churches, ministries, and others to carry out its mission to save lives in the Holy Land and bless Israel.
