Make the benefits of Ramadan Year Round
Giving in Ramadan is tradition. And it’s impact truly overwhelming. Thank you for helping us make so many children happy and be included in our Ramadan traditions like having khajoor. We’ve been visiting the orphanages and spending time with the children, learning their likes and preferences. “We like pizza,” stated 11 year old Adil (names changed as per GG policy), clenching his fists as if almost to protect his right to have a preference. Four other boys ranging in age from 8 to 12 chimed in, "Me too. Pizza."
That's when we realized the traditional way of feeding those in need biryani may have alternatives too like pizza or burgers on special occasions or every once in a while.
We also have an opportunity - with your help - to distribute dates next year to all children orphans lof SOS Villages Pakistan all over the nation. This is a massive impactful project and we would welcome major contributions from you and every one you know. But imagine the impact. Imagine how simple coordination and delivery could transform joy, create inclusion and bring Ramadan's blessings, not just requirements to so many.
In order to make this happen, we need to start presiding from now. Making alliances with corporations and building funds to order and allocate for necesssry items and logistics.
But imagine the impact.
Imagine the impact of what began with you. You being a part of this. So please start giving monthly under our recurring programme for Ramandan 2020. Whether you start with $10 a month or $1000 a month, imagine your impact.
we also have anAs we focus on our goal of distributing these dates on Ramadan 2020, starting Friday, 24 April 2020 (estimated), we are fundraising so we can gear up for a major distribution drive. Some of you are asking us why donate now when there is time. Also, some people feel its better to give the donation during Ramadan, not in advance. So, we wanted to focus this report on our vision and how to make your donation more impactful. If all 7 of those in this group donated $15 every Friday the whole year, that would be $105 a week. 27 weeks from now, Ramadan will begin and $2835 will be raised and 3 1/2 orphanages will have supply for Ramadan every day for the entire month! This token amount weekly becomes impactful. From a religious point of view, it is feeding those and the feeding will take place in Ramadan even if the donations are consistent throughout the year. How beautiful is that. Lend a hand and see the joy unfold.
