Purim Dreams Come True!
For the third consecutive year, 40 design students from the Holon Institute of Technology (HIT) volunteered to join the Beit Issie Shapiro team and give children with disabilities who use wheelchairs and walkers a truly ecstatic Purim, designing their dream costumes to incorporate their devices, instead of hide them.
Over the past few weeks, the children, staff and HIT students worked in teams on each costume design, turning them into a reality with all the necessary accessories, and bringing the children’s dream costumes to life.
Some of the highlights of the costume fair included an IDF fighter pilot complete with his plane, Batman in his famous Batmobile, a DJ spinning at her turntable with lights and stereo all built in, a Coca Cola truck driver, Iron Man, a bride in her wedding car, a fairy, Minnie Mouse going for a ride, and other elaborate and incredible costumes. The looks of joy on their faces said it all!
All this would not have happened without our donors, student volunteers from HIT, as well as our staff including Noa Nitzan, Racheli Blum and Adi Riza, as well as the logistics team: Raveh, Ina, Dalia Hanan and Jackie. (Photography by Jordan Polevoy)
