Give And Win $50 From JGives

In honor of the High Holidays, JGives asked to write this guest post.

Have you heard about the new way of giving with jgives?

Our lives are so busy that it’s often hard to find the time to relax let alone to give tzedakkah. Well, the founders of jdeal have come up with a great new philanthropic tool – jgives, a website where you can sift through charities, that are all jgives approved, and choose where to make your donation. The best part is after one donation, your payment details are securely stored so that next time it’s just a click!

This week is the Aseret Yemei Teshuva (10 days of repentance) and jgives wants to make sure that everyone is a part of this new giving revolution. So, for this week (September 9th – September 13, 2013 ), every donor will be entered into a draw to win a further donation of $50 to the charity of their choice AND a further $50 credit for jdeal as a reward for giving! 

“When we come together we can make the world a truly great place, so make sure to check out the charities on jgives and support them.
Through jgives and your contributions, each charity can have a great impact.”

This is a chance not to miss out on, with a simple donation of as little as $9, you could have the chance to give $50 to your charity of choice!

jgives – changing the world, $18 at a time

Wishing all my readers a G’mar Chasima Tova – that you be signed and sealed in the book of life!

Carrot Zucchini Muffin Recipe

Here’s my recipe for Zucchini Carrot Muffins that are healthy and delicious.  I use white whole wheat flour instead of regular white flour and agave nectar instead of sugar making a healthy choice filled with vegetables and healthier sweets and carbs.  They go perfectly in the fall / Sukkot season.  Enjoy!  Wishing you a Chag Sameach – a good sweet Sukkos holiday.



2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1 1/2 cups agave nectar

1/2 cup oats

3/4 cup oil

1 T baking powder

1 t salt

1 1/2 t cinnamon

1 T vanilla

4 eggs

1 zucchinni with peel

2 carrots


Grate carrots and zucchini.   Add remaining ingredients and mix.  Bake in greased muffin tins at 350 degrees for 30 – 40 minutes.  Muffins are ready when top springs back if touched.  Enjoy!
