THANK YOU WEWORK!
I was humbled and honored to receive a Community Giver Award of 63,000 ILS at the 2017 WeWork Creator Awards in Israel. But more than that, I was so proud to be able to donate the entire prize right away, to the Israeli start-up that invented a technology for lifesaving medical emergency bracelets, and delivers them to Holocaust survivors, for free, for life. And then - to hear directly from WeWork's Co-Founder and CEO Adam Neumann that they will match my donation, and by that double the prize to 126,000 ILS.
From the Press:
People often separate between their jobs and their passions. Those lucky enough to be able to combine the two hopefully know to appreciate the uniqueness of what they have attained. For the truly lucky ones, there are those rare positions that one can “do well” at while doing something extremely positive for humanity and helping others. This is one such story.
On Thursday night, in the Tel Aviv convention center, WeWork held their bi-annual Creator Awards presentation in Israel. Entrepreneur Assaf Luxembourg who was heavily involved in the promotion and success of the MyMDband wrist strap received a creator award from the multi-national company whose estimated value is more than $20 billion.
