About My Campaign
For my mitzvah project, I will be hosting a gluten-free bake sale for research of Celiac disease. I will be donating all the proceeds to the NYU Langone Hospital.
Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease where eating gluten can cause the person with Celiac to not get needed nutrients from gluten. This can lead to a range of problems. This cause is important to me because my brother has Celiac. This means I can see the precautions one has to take when they have Celiac every day. Knowing that if there is a careless restaurant worker who touches bread and then touches anything my brother will eat can harm him is not a good feeling. This brings me back to my mitzvah project. Because my brother can’t have a lot of food, especially desserts, and I like to bake I occasionally try making something that he can eat. Usually It turns out as good as it would with non gluten-free ingredients, if not better. That is why I am going to host a completely gluten free bake sale. I want to show people that Celiac-friendly food can be held to the same standards of food that is not substituted.
If you feel motivated to give any amount, no matter the size, please do. Your gift would mean so much to me, and even more to so many others who depend on the work of NYU Langone's faculty and staff. Thank you for your support. (Please note: this campaign was originally started in 2017 by Jason.)
