From Arutz Sheva: "Energizing Support For Israel "

An energy company in New York State has thought of a new way to support Israel. For every customer who signs up, and then again in accordance with his usage, the company - ECONnergy of Spring Valley, NY - will donate at least $18 to a worthy Israeli organization. The service is currently available in New York, New Jersey, and Maryland. The company will supply gas and electricity to the local utility, which will then continue to supply it to the customer - at lower prices, ECONnergy states, and with a donation to Israel thrown in on the side.

Customers can currently designate one or all of the following four organizations for their donations: Navah, which delivers care packages, distributes funds, and visits with terror victims and their families; One Israel Fund, which provides humanitarian assistance to the over 225,000 Israelis living in Yesha; Yad Eliezer, staffed by 10,000 volunteers, which provides food, clothing and financial assistance to more than 50,000 people in 17 cities across Israel; and ZAKA, providing emergency on-site first aid and assistance in rescue, recovery and identification of terror attack victims.
