Following the success of the unique Interfaith Christmas Card project to the neighbours of our centres (see link below), Alhamdulillah Buzz Ideazz have worked with several centres around London to do the same this Eid!
Yesterday, Hyderi Centre in South distributed 100 of our Neighbour Eid Cardzz tho those living in the vicinity of their mosque. Here is the synopsis:
“Further to this afternoon’s Neighbourhood Club initiative, Alhumdulillah the distribution was completed successfully to 100 of Hyderi’s neighbours. We thank you all very much & esp the members of Hyderi who generously gave up their time despite fasting on this sunny day to personally invite our neighbours. Chocolate boxes, Eid cards & the personal invitation to the Interfaith program tomorrow were v.well received Mashallah.
However noise & talking outside houses late at night was highlighted as an issue that needs to be addressed, with 1 neighbour having to move bedrooms as the noise was very disturbing. Let us please remember to lower our voices & be considerate of neighbours at all times iA.
Insha’Allah we will continue with this Neighborhood Club initiative, continue to hear their thoughts & concerns & make positive changes to foster our relationship with our neighbours for Imam Sajjad a.s explains they have rights on us, we all must fulfill inshAllah. The smile of appreciation from our neighbours was priceless though. May it continue all year long iA.”

P.S. Alhamdulillah, another initiative we have undertaken this Ramadan is to join forces with Stanmore Jaffery’s to help raise money for Ramadhan Relief…
Buy our unique neighbour cards from Stanmore Jaffery’s over this next week and do a two-in-one: spread the love to your Muslim and non-Muslim neighbours AND raise money for a good cause at the same time!
It’s a win-win 🙂
This time we took some chocolates (check out these Eid Mubarak ones Guylian has come out with) as I’m all baked out – plus we usually give them baked goods so this was a nice change!
Alhamdulillah came back with having caught up with what they’ve been up to, some more phone numbers, feeling more secure (as one of them said our alarm had gone on a few days ago and he had come to check the place out to make sure it was OK), and a warm, fuzzy feeling too 🙂
P.S. I have been super amazed at your response to the cards – especially those that bought 3, 6 or 9 packs! Would love to hear how it went! Have you done this before? If not, did you enjoy the experience?
