Impact Report 2008 – 2018

A SEA OF GREEN
HOW WE OPERATE
DAN RICKMAN, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
I first started volunteering with Mitzvah Day
in 2008, by collecting items for the homeless.
Inspired by these experiences, I became a
Mitzvah Day Active coordinator, organising
volunteers for Magen David Adom UK and
Langdon. Since the start of my journey with
Mitzvah Day, I have observed in awe as a sea of
green has swept across the Jewish community.

It wasn’t until 2015 when I took
over as Mitzvah Day’s Executive
Director that I truly began to
understand and experience the
impact that Mitzvah Day has,
not only on our local British
community, but also across
the world.

It has been my absolute privilege
to lead the organisation for the
last three years and my goal is for
Mitzvah Day to continue to grow
and develop long into the future. I
want to use these pages to share
with you some of what takes
place behind the scenes to enable
Mitzvah Day UK Charitable Trust to
do what we do best; galvanise over
40,000 volunteers each year to
make a difference.
