I Contributed and Merited Salvation – Stories of Salvation

In Her Grandfather’s Footsteps

Sometimes, minor annoyances can cause as much aggravation as more significant tzaros.
3:00 a.m. Mrs. R.’s eyes were burning from exhaustion but she was too tense to sleep. It was during times like these that she felt her job as coordinator of extra-curricular activities in a girls’ school was a headache too difficult to bear.
Every year, a central theme was selected and introduced to the girls. All extra-curricular activities throughout the year were based on and related to that theme. Both Mrs. R. and the principal of the school where she worked felt very strongly that in addition to regular school learning, it was important for the girls to participate in creative, enjoyable activities designed to impart important lessons about various good middos.
The date scheduled for the rally at which the annual theme would be presented was looming dangerously close. 
A good theme had already been decided upon.
A big hall had already been ordered.
A sound system had been arranged.
Transportation and refreshments – check.
But the main part of the event was missing! Mrs. R. needed a program, an activity, something really enjoyable yet meaningful to do with the girls at the rally. Something that would set the right tone for the entire year. All her ideas had come to nothing. Every game she considered seemed silly and shallow, their connection to the theme weak. Mrs. R. has the merit of being the granddaughter of the renowned gaon, Harav Shmuel Halevi Wosner, Shlit״a.
She had heard much about her grandfather's special fondness for Kupat Ha’ir. Over and over again she heard him say that “Kupat Ha’ir is trustworthy,״ that “there they give real tzedakah,״ that “there the money goes only for holy purposes.״
In the wee hours of the morning, with despair threatening to overwhelm her  - those sentences came to mind.
Maybe she should also try to contribute? Maybe she, too, would be able to join the hundreds of people who “contributed and merited salvation״?
When dozens of students applauded enthusiastically as the wonderful program came to an end, Mrs. R. stepped out to a side room and called Kupat Ha’ir.
‘With deep emotion, she related how the coordinator of a different school “just happened״ to call her a short while after she’d made a contribution to Kupat Ha’ir. That coordinator had given her the germ of an idea and she’d managed to develope it into a wonderful program.
Her grandfather, Rav Wosner, Shlit״a, is personally familiar with Kupat Ha’ir’s trustworthiness and integrity and the incomprehensibly huge amounts of tzedakah that pass through it.
Now, for the first time, his granddaughter became personally familiar with the efficacy of the yeshuos department…
