December Mitzvah Makers: Humorology
Camp teaches the values of kavod (respect), chesed (Kindness) and kehilla (Community). The University of Wisconsin-Madison has an organization called Humorology, where various casts compete against each other to create a unique musical/variety show while raising money for a local charity. The Camp Chi contingent at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has a long history of being involved in Humorology and this year is no different, with Maya Parks and Jessica Tenenbaum heavily involved in the organization.
Humorology is the largest student-run philanthropy in the state of Wisconsin and this year they are raising money for Blessings in a Backpack, an organization that provides meals on the weekends for food insecure children. Humorology along with Blessings in a Backpack has the goal of showing chesed and kavod to those less fortunate and strengthening the Madison community. This weekend alone, 87,000 kids across 45 different states are being fed because of the efforts of Blessings in a Backpack. With the contributions from Humorology, Blessings in a Backpack aims to expand its outreach, aiding more families affected by hunger, especially those in the Madison area.
You can help Maya and Jessica support Blessings in a Backpack here. We want to also recognize current students Max Lerman and Daniel Kravitz who have been heavily involved in Humorology in past years. This is a great cause and we say kol hakavod to all of your for your involvement and dedication.
