Donna is a hi-tech entrepreneur, philanthropist, and most dear to her heart, a deeply committed Christian Zionist. Her love for Israel and the children of Israel, began when she had a life changing Spiritual Awakening in 1995 and started reading The Bible. She founded a hi-tech company in the States in 1999 that sold in 2001 – within months of her first visit to Israel – and attributes that visit and the love of Israel to her success according to Genesis 12:3. Donna has dedicated her life to bridging the Christian and Jewish communities.
