Orli Halpern Obituary, Death – I am raising funds and awareness for Stanton Strong Empowering Women in memory of an extraordinary young woman, Orli Chaim Wildman Halpern. Max Mara (of Riverside Square in New Jersey) and Gilly’s Organics will donate sales earnings to Stanton Strong on June 1st in remembrance of Orli, a beautiful daughter of a childhood summer camp friend who often stood up to injustice in her short life.
Orli was passionate about women’s rights, particularly reproductive rights. And, like her bold and brilliant mother, she used her abilities and voice to bring about change. She was caustic and unforgiving, yet despite her concern for the world’s problems, she wasn’t always that way. When she used her social media platform, she caused hundreds of individuals to reconsider their options. Orli suffered from a rare tumor for three and a half years until it took her life at the age of 14. I believe she was created to alter the world, and she has already started. I want to continue making a difference in her precious memory in my own modest way. Will you come with me?
Please join us in celebrating her life, principles, and contributions to equality. On Thursday, June 1st, Max Mara in Riverside Square Mall will be open from 5-7 pm. (Earlier that day, there had also been an 11-1.) Prosecco, canapés, and shopping are not required. Max Mara will donate 10% of profits for the following week, and Gilly’s Organics will be open for business throughout June. “Orli has always been a happy person.” She was enthralled by the complexities and wanted to learn more about them through travel, books, dance, surfing, skiing, and discussions with friends, family, and strangers. Despite having a sizable social media following and collecting funds for cancer research, she never wanted to be known just for her illness.
“In death, we will remember her love of life, resilience, strength, and inquisitiveness.” Today we share a tragedy, but Orli’s life was a celebration of all that makes us human.” “The overwhelming outpouring of love and support has crushed us, but it has also buoyed and embraced us.” Orli’s memories will be warmly remembered. Orli, whose life was triumphant but whose death was terrible.”
