The Israel Army radio station raised just over $3 million in a 24-hour marathon Independence Day fundraising appeal with songs, skits, talks and prizes last Thursday. The funds raised are to be used for special education projects for backward and underprivileged soldiers. It was the second major fundraising marathon conducted by Israel’s electronic media in the past month. Israel television raised several million dollars for disabled children two weeks ago.
