Fundraising idea 18: Giving from their own pockets...
A beautiful selfless gesture…sharing as seen on a Facebook post:
“I have just seen the most beautiful scene:
After the kids Award Ceremony at SIJNY for Quran and Dua recitation and memorisation, Sohail Abdullah asked for donations to Comfort Aid’s ‘Zanzibar Education Fund’, to provide desks for schools (http://www.comfortaid.org/)
The children, who had just received cash for their Shahr Ramadhaan efforts spontaneously rose, one by one, to return their gifts as donations to the Education Fund!
This is fantastic selflessness from the children and should be commended. The whole jamaat was very moved by this action from such young kids.
“Those who spend (in the cause of Allah) privately or publicly, by night and day, have their reward with their Lord. And (on the Day of Resurrection) they shall neither fear nor grieve.” (Al-Baqarah 2:274)”
