This is my dear friend/sr's parents presenting the families with the blankets that your donations paid for Alhamdulillah.
Update 15th Nov 2012.
Jazak'Allah Khair to all who donated to the blanket project. Alhamdulillah as you know we raised enough for 100 so far. Please note: the first batch of blankets have been distributed this week Alhamdulillah, anymore donations received from now on will be set aside for the next batch. I don't know exactly when that will be so please be aware when donating.
Update 12th November 2012.
Alhamdulillah so have we have purchased 100 blankets that are being distributed this week. Some have been given out already as the weather in Lucknow in India is very cold and will be even colder in Dec/Jan. These blankets are given mainly to the elderly and children who are poverty stricken Subhan'Allah. A simple blanket can keep them warm, all the while you are being made dua for from those recipients, and Allah is rewarding you for giving for His sake.
£1.50 each Subhan'Allah that's all you need to give to keep a poor person warm this winter.
This is an picture from India this week, imagine having no heating or warm clothes or blankets etc. Please donate just £1.50 above and we will have them distributed to the most needy Insha'Allah..
Now that the days are getting shorter and colder, please remember those who have no real home let alone central heating. Yes our gas charges may be rising, and things are becoming tougher by the day. But at least we are fortunate enough to have the things we do. Having a real roof over our head is a blessing from Allah.
The above charity was set up by a very dear family I know after losing their daughter/sister to cancer in 2007 aged just 22.
By donating just £1.50 via Paypal above this will enable them to purchase a blanket on your behalf and distribute it to those who are in need in Lucknow, India.
What can we really buy here now for £1.50? Nothing much at all, but we could help to keep someone warm during the winter months approaching.
Please do give whatever amount you are able fi sabilIllah as we never know where the good lies in what we do so please don't miss this chance.
