With Ramadan upon us in a blink of an eye, we have high hopes for Green Muslims to have an active presence in our community and beyond. I am writing to reach out to people who have a little extra time this coming month to get a head-start on the blessings! We are looking for 5-7 people who can help with our Green Muslim Ramadan Initiative.
What this entails:
Project 1: It is our hope, inshaAllah, to sponsor (via biodegradable plates, cups, and utensils) 5-10 Iftars at 5-10 different mosques and community centers in the DC-MD-VA area. We hope to solicit enough donations of money and biodegradable products to host a week-long initiative of low-impact iftars where we will have a presentation highlighting the importance of more environmentally conscious methods as well as focusing on how these mosques and community centers should invest further in organizations that provide these biodegradable products. We have already started soliciting donations of both money, and biodegradable products, and just need a few extra hands to take this effort forward.
Project 2: We are in the midst of creating a Ramadan Page-a-day tool-kit in order to help people develop and uphold environmentally conscious and spiritually connected habits. We need 1-2 people to help us come to a finished product by the first week of Ramadan.
If you are interested in either of these projects, more details are to follow. Please contact sarrah.abulughod (at) gmail.com.
