MAS Youth National is excited to present its second annual Hearts for Humanity project, in which all MAS chapters, masjids, MSAs, clubs, institutions, communities, and individuals nationwide can participate and contribute in raising funds and awareness about the Yemeni Crisis via Islamic Relief.
This campaign is a fundraising and awareness spreading effort spanning the first two weeks of March in hopes of raising money for people in Yemen. Approximately 7 million people are severely malnourished in Yemen and at least 370,000 of them are children. With the crisis only increasing in intensity, we see it as an obligation upon us to assist in any way we can.
This year we have 15+ MAS chapters in 15+ cities around the country participating in a fundraising competition from March 1st to March 14th. Which chapter will raise the most money? Will it be the chapter of the city that never sleeps? Will Minnesota come in second place once again? Or will Detroit surpass them all to the finish line? Stay tuned to find out what happens.
Our Fundraising Goal: $100,000
Lastly, we’d like to remind you with the beautiful words of Allah (SWT): “Help the orphans and needy” . . . Do not worship except Allah; and to parents do good and to relatives, orphans, and the needy. And speak to people good [words] and establish prayer and give zakah . . . [2:83]
If you would like your chapter/club/organization/community to participate, reach out to us @: firstname.lastname@example.org.
