Knicks Forward Amar’e Stoudemire Scores Points for Hatzalah

Amar'e Stoudemire

New York Knicks forward, Amar’e Stoudemire, who keeps kosher and identifies as Jewish, has started a campaign to score points for Hatzalah, the volunteer-based ambulance service started in Israel, as reported by the Forward. The program called “Amar’e Saves” allows donors to pledge money for every point the player makes. In the first two games of the season so far, the six-time all star scored 20 points, which has made $10, 960, and when combined with direct donations, the campaign has raised $29, 970 so far for Hatzalah.

United Hatzalah is a free emergency medical service that was started in Israel and has other branches worldwide. It is often faster than traditional ambulances. Stoudemire commented, “In today’s society, which is so fast, we need to be doing something about saving lives quicker, and Hatzalah is doing just that.”
