BENEFITING: Smile Organization
Sunday - June 4th 2017
The Prophet ﷺ said “Seek out the weak and vulnerable among you. You are only given provision and support due to your support of them.”
Imran & Hina have asked that in lieu of any gifts for Baby Hasan that you extend your generosity towards the SMILE Diaper Pantry and share in the reward of giving back to those in need in our own local communities.
The SMILE Diaper Pantry serves over 100 babies on a monthly basis with diapers, wipes, formula, baby food and other related items.
-Nearly 30% of low-income mothers reported they could not afford to change their children as frequently as they wished.
-1 in 10 mothers reported ‘stretching diapers’, a practice associated with urinary tract infections and diaper dermatitis.
-The Yale School of Medicine found that "diaper need”—the inability to provide diapers—is a stronger predictor of stress and depression for mothers than other indicators such as neighborhood crime and food insecurity.
-Diapers cost nearly $1000 per baby annually
We would appreciate it if you would donate generously for this noble cause. Please bear in mind that while any donation is most welcomed, becoming a monthly donor will ensure that such programs can be consistently funded and can better serve the local community.
The Prophet ﷺ said, “Charity extinguishes sin, just as water extinguishes fire.”
