Bringing Eid to the largest liberty festival in the country

Muslims 4 Liberty has been invited to share Eid at the largest liberty movement event of the year, the Porcupine Freedom Festival in Lancaster NH, "Porcfest" for short. 

Thousands of people from around the US, and Canada, come to the White Mountains of New Hampshire to camp and meet with the biggest media names in the liberty community. We'll be there again isA handing out 1000's of Eid meals to festival goers. 

We create new allies for the Muslim community

Previous ramadan events at Porcfest have resulted in huge gains for the American Muslim community, some that many of us don't even realize exist. Big name media personalities like Ian Freeman, Mark Edge, Jeffrey Tucker, (and many others) have become staunch defenders of the rights of Muslims after enjoying a steaming hot iftar meal prepared and served by Muslims 4 Liberty volunteers, so much so that "Ramadan@Porcfest" has become a central part of the yearly event. 

Last year at Porcfest XIII a piece of property was donated by a festival attendee for M4L asst national director Davi Barker to open a new Masjid in Keene, NH.  

Build new bridges, while offering a free meal

The Prophet(saws) was once asked "what is the best action in islam"
He(saws) replied, "To feed the people, and greet those whom you know, and those you do not" 

and that's exactly what we do. 

The money raised here will go to pay for food, lots of it. Enough to feed close to 3000 Eid meals to festival goers at the close of Ramadan this year. Culminating 5 amazing years of dawah work and sharing the Ramadan experience with 1000s of non muslim political activists and media personalities.

 On the final day of the festival we'll slaughter TWO locally sourced goats, one which will be prepared and served for an Eid celebration for festival goers, and the other prepared and served at a local homeless shelter by festival volunteers and M4L staff. 

Imagine the blessing in not only making sure a staff of a dozen daee have a chance to celebrate Eid, while doing their work, but also assisting them in providing bowls of hot food that mean so much more than a full stomach. Help us establish and practice this sunnah. 

Every dollar donated buys a bowl of food. 

Putting something like this together is not easy, the logistics of cooking and serving thousands of meals to strangers is a nightmare, but we do it because it works. Sharing a meal with a fellow child of Adam breaks down barriers and creates friendships and relations that can last a life time. 

We keep our food costs extra low by offering traditional indian vegetarian options, but when you add in travel costs, festival fees, and incidentals( like needing an extra pot or replacing a rained out canopy) the cost to bring this food to the masses ends up being about $1.25 a bowl. 

That means something as simple as $10 can help us reach 10 people, 10 new allies, 10 new defenders of the Muslim community in social media as well as print and radio. Defenders and allies our community could greatly use at this time.
