Today is Mitzvah Day, a fantastic project that aims to unite the community in making a difference.
This year, people in Israel were able to take part in Mitzvah Day too, by volunteering for Leket, Israel's national food bank. Find out more about Leket at www.leket.org/english.
On Friday, Sam Freeman and Benjamin Silverblatt joined Leket to pick fruit and vegetables for Israel's needy. Benjamin told me that it was "good fun", and they managed to pick enough clementines for 750 families.
