Here we are again, 1 year later, and we hope you & your families are doing well & safe during this second year of the the Covid pandemic.
2021 has proven to be more difficult for some then 2020, and given the success we had last year with monetary donations, food donations, volunteers, and the smiles we were able to put on faces of the young and old - we had to regroup to go at this again, bigger and bolder!
As we all know, with our local Mosques being at limited capacity, many families and individuals who relied on the Mosque services of nightly or weekend iftars (food) will be limited in such opportunity and many will struggle to put meals on the table every night.
Many individuals and families continue to struggle with the loss of jobs, wage cuts, unpaid sick days, and little to no source of income.
I have once again secured a deal with many local restaurants to build iftar meal boxes that we will give out through the month of Ramadan.
This is something my wife and I thought of last year, and have keen interest in continuing again this year, while involving our 2 boys to show them the importance of giving back, helping others in need, and volunteering.
We are once again reaching out to you in a long shot, but hoping you can dig deep into your pockets, and find anything to spare to help those who need it most.
My challenge to you this year is to dig deeper, and stretch further, in helping us raise $10,000 over the month - every penny counts.
We as a family have stepped up to donate the first $1000 - now I challenge you to push this further!
We will be working closely with local business such as; Paramount Fine Foods, Northern Smokes, Sultan BBQ & Grill, Freshco to get meals and produce at cost, packaging these items, and working with our volunteers to hand deliver every meal in person - ensuring every dollar is used within the community and beyond (homeless, shelters, etc.).
Updates will be shared with full transparency and honesty along the way. I will be personally responsible for withdrawing the money from this fundraiser to my personal account and ensure full accountability of these funds being utilized fully.
Myself nor my family is affiliated with anyone, and purely want to do this out of our heart, and goodwill, while looking for no reward or recognition from anyone.
If this is something you can help us with, please step up and donate money, time, or resources (or if you can share areas these meals would really help).
I hope together we can help start something, not only for now, but the future as well.
May you have a blessed Ramadan.
Waqas, Khatija & Family.
PS. Any additional funds raised beyond the goal will be put towards additional meals or donated to places of need (regardless of religion, culture, race, or belief).
Every $ will go directly to help someone in need - with constant updates and accountability throughout the month!
