THE STORY:

I am really not big on birthdays and usually on my birthday, I just thank God for another year of being able to wake up staring at the ceiling. Being that this year is my 25th, I wanted to really do something that defines who I am as a person. I have always been a big fundraiser for various causes and I started fundraising when I was 7, when an earthquake hit Afghanistan. I went around my neighborhood with a decorated milk carton and was able to raise enough for a few families who had lost their loved ones. Hence, this is why I want to mark me being a 1/4 century old by fundraising for TWO VERY IMPORTANT causes I work with. The first one is the Afghan Women's Fund which focuses on improving the lives of women in rural villages in Afghanistan through sustainable education. There are currently over 1 million widows desperate to feed their children; many are turning to begging and prostitution,
and thousands of children are living on the streets. The United States’ responsibility to help financially with reconstruction and aid is far from enough. Most government
funds just are not reaching women and children. Grassroots efforts are directly touching lives.The second is Voices Against Brain Cancer whose mission is to find a cure for brain cancer by advancing scientific research, increasing awareness within the medical community and supporting patients, their families and caregivers afflicted with this devastating disease. If you donate to the Afghan Women's Fund this is the CORRECT PAGE. Make your donation out to "Mashal Hamidi's Birthday for a Cause". The funds will go directly to one of our projects. If you donate to VABC please make your donation out to the Sounding off for a Cure Concert in memory of Dr. Zadran at http://www.crowdrise.com/vabcmashal/fundraiser/mashalhamidi
