Another simple but very effective idea! Imagine the thawaab gained everytime anyone uses these 🙂
“We will be selling these Washroom Packs at mosque tonight.
A laminated ghusl card for in the shower.
A laminated wudhu card for beside the sink.
A laminated washroom door sign.
You can use these in your homes as daily reminders.
Please support us in raising funds for Palestine as every penny raised will be donated.
Packs are £3.50 each.
Please order in advance to guarantee your pack.”
This is a lovely unique idea Great for Eid gifts!
“Alijawad is raising money for the Gaza Relief Fund launched by the World federation. He is doing this by selling double sided, laminated, A3 placemats. One side has table manners and the other side has the Arabic Alphabet. They make great Eid presents. They are for £4 each or £7 for 2 placemats.”
This is a classic that has been running for many years now in children’s classes. On the last week before Eid, the children bring in unwanted presents from their homes and these are all collected and priced (between £1 and 5).
Then the children bring in money and buy presents for their families! The presents are wrapped so that mums and dads don’t know what they have chosen 🙂
That children get to choose their own gifts for others is a great way to get them to think for thenselves about what their family members would like – and their choices are often spot on! (Alhamd :))
And of course, all proceeds go to charity 🙂
Last month we shared the 15th Shabaan fundraising bazaar which had loads of ideas of things you could do to raise money, even including beauty treatments with 100% of the profit going to a charity.
Check out this one – with a ball pool for little ones, loom bands sale, goal game, etc.
It doesn’t even have to be difficult to organise! The Children’s Islamic Library held a similar fundraiser two years ago and asked parents and children to choose a stall they wanted to run together! They then organised everything to do with the stall and just showed up on the day to get things going. Check out pics from the event here to get ideas for what to do!
The kids absolutely thrived on having their own stall to run and it taught them a lot of skills too – handling money, encouraging customers, being responsible for set up and clear up – in short, would highly encourage it
The 23rd night is upon us! Just thought I’d share some thoughts with you…
The last two Laylatul Qadr nights have come and gone, and one thing I realised quite early on is that if our children are staying up (or trying to), they can take up quite a lot of our time… while I was trying to help them with all the little bits and bobs (as well as answer questions, get them comfortable, etc), I was also very conscious of the precious minutes ticking away.
So tonight I am going to dedicate a little time to them to get them started, but then I am going to leave them to it, whatever they choose to do. Because tonight is about me and my God. Inshallah they will have many years ahead of them to benefit from this awesome night, but right now they are not even baaligh yet and it is MY responsibility to pray for them tonight.
The balance between helping them and helping ourselves is hard, and may Allah give us the tawfeeq to get it right! May we utilise this night to the max, and may we feel the ‘Salaam’ coming down on us Inshallah
If I may, please could I sincerely request you to remember me and my family (and Buzz Ideazz!) in your duas tonight (write us down on your lists please!).
You, my Buzz family, are in mine 🙂
The pic says it all!
Another great way to raise money is to do it with friends! So everyone gets their own little money box to collect from family and friends and through other means (sponsorships, etc) individually, as well as doing fundraising activities together.
A chance to do good, and have fund with friends at the same time 🙂
Sharing below this unique way of raising funds as well as gratitude in our little ones!
By Islam From The Start:
“To truly appreciate our blessings, we sometimes have to have them taken away. With that in mind, to help the little one understand what real gratitude feels like, we tried to think of ways that he could actually experience giving up some comforts. These are the challenges we came up with for the week ahead. (I’ll do them with him as added motivation.)
To instil a gratitude for:
Food – Try to do a half day fast. It took some persuasion, let’s see how it goes.
Toys – No screen time for a day! That’s no TV/ipad/iphone. (I’m going to find this one hard!)
Speech – Fast of silence for an hour.
Car – Walk a mile to the high street instead of using the car which is what we usually do.
I’m hoping it will provide a memorable experience which he can recall when he next thanks Allah for that particular blessing. At the same time, it will iA give him a small insight into what so many people around the world live without on a daily basis.
We’ve decided to incorporate the experience into a sponsored fundraiser for Gaza. The little one has recorded a short video clip to send out to family, using the challenge to appreciate his blessings, as a way to raise and contribute to those in need.
If you’d like to support him, you can make a donation online at:
Check out this idea! Aqeel Jaffer is turning 1 years old, and his parents have decided to raise funds for charity in lieu of birthday presents – what a generous gesture, and the thawaab-e-Jaariya will be such a great start to his life, Mashallah 🙂
