Heartwarming letter from Yasmine B. to her ADI Bat Mitzvah Twin!

Hi Shira,
My name is Yasmine, and I am almost 12 years old. I am so exited to be your twin. As you know, Purim was a while ago, so to celebrate YOU and Purim, I started selling my old Purim costumes from my previous years, and we raised 165 pounds already. We turned my garage into a shop. Here are some pictures and my video ad. (My friend Alex came to help; I’m the one on the right.)

Next, I want to start to make and sell things for going back to school and maybe have a car boot sale, too — so don’t worry, you are going to have the best Bat Mitzvah in the history of Bat Mitzvahs.

Well now that’s out of the way, I bet you are wondering, who is this girl? What’s her life story? Well I can answer all those questions: My birthday is May 25th. I absolutely adore dogs, do you?

Believe me, I keep boasting to everyone about this whole twin thing. I am so exited of having a new best friend: YOU. I can’t wait until we meet each other face to face. I know you can’t write me back, but I hope someone will read this letter to you. I am thinking of you and will write to you again when I have more news.

See you soon.

Lots of love,

We need your support!
