Save a Child's Heart

MIT student Noah Buckman writes:

I’m writing to you about a fundraiser I have been working on these past few months with my fraternity, AEPi, for Save A Child’s Heart.  Our campaign has been a major success and it’s been a really amazing experience working on this fundraiser during my spare time.

In case you haven’t seen yet, here’s a video we made of students getting pied.

Save a Child's Heart is an organization that identifies children from developing countries with potentially fatal but treatable heart conditions, flies them to Israel, and provides life-saving heart surgeries. The Israeli doctors who perform the surgeries are all volunteers, but the total cost amounts to $10,000 per child.

As the fundraiser has grown more and more successful, our chapter alumni have agreed to match 5K for 5K, then 10K for 10K, then 12.5K for 12.5K. Now, if we reach $15,000, our alumni will match our donation, bringing the total to $30,000. This is enough to save the lives of three children. We're only $1,500 away from saving the lives of three children, and we need your help. If you think this is a good cause, please consider making a donation!

There are two ways to donate:

1) Online at
2) By check made out to Alpha Epsilon Pi Foundation, Memo: Save a Child’s Heart – MIT. Checks can be mailed to:
