Changing the World with $1 | Dr. Jonathan Donath
Just as drips of water over millennia can carve out caves and canyons, one small mitzvah multiplied several times over can move mountains as well.
That’s the belief of Dr. Jonathan Donath, a legendary chiropractor in White Plains, New York, who got an epiphany in 2018 while dropping a dollar bill into the tzedakah box at his shul. “No matter how much money I give to charity, I still get a mitzvah every time I drop a dollar in,” he thought. “How can I guarantee that I do this mitzvah every day for a buck?”
He looked for an organization that was doing this and couldn’t find one. So, he and a couple of his friends had a website built and created a nonprofit Daily Giving.
