This past week, Our beloved friend Anit Berger tragically lost her life in a car accident to a drunk driver.
Anit was always positive and happy no matter the circumstance. All she ever wanted to do was help her mother and help the world. She was the kind of friend that would always send inspirational videos and quotes, and consistently tried to improve herself whether by being Vegan, supporting different charities, or trying to be of service to others.
She loved the arts. She was a true artist. You can watch her Youtube video below to understand how fun and loving she was.
I approached Bret Blumenthal, her husband , in the hospital this week and asked how I could help. We decided to start this GoFundMe for Anit’s mother.
Her mom is not well physically. She lives alone in Israel with no contact from friends or family. Her health has been deteriorating and she works two jobs in order to support herself.
Anit never worried about herself and was always worried about her mom, and her day to day survival. We are raising money so her mom can get through this difficult time, and not worry about her day to day survival, especially without Anit’s constant and tireless intervention. A small portion of the money will also go to Bret (her husband) to get back on his feet and allow him to recover, as he probably wont be able to work for a few months.
The message below is from Bret
“ My Dearest Anit,
You touched more lives than I could have ever imagined. You brought Happiness and light to every corner of darkness. You didn't walk into the room, You were the room.
Your passion for life and each and every one of G-d's Creations, especially your love of the Jewish community was unrivaled.
You were the first to action when somebody needed help, you were the first to give when somebody was in need.
Your dream was to give, give give; to your family, to your community, to those that were poor and suffering.
It's heartbreaking and Heartwarming at the same time to see just how much you were loved and how many lives you touched. It's been overwhelming looking at all the pictures and memories. It was both an honor and a privelege to be your husband. I love you, very, very much. And I miss you.. we ALL miss you. This place will not be the same without your insatiable love of live and adventure.
Thank you all for your kindness, love, comfort, and prayers through this horrible tragedy. Thank You and Bless You All <3
-Bret Joshua Blumenthal
We all know that if Anit had a last will and testament she would say
“Please take care of my mom!”
If she knew her family is ok, she can rest in peace. Thank you for your donations and shares.
