EVENT DATE: Jun 20, 2014
~~As-Salaamu Alaykum (Peace Be Upon You),
Firstly, I want to thank you for simply taking the time to look at this fundraiser. I’m turning 16 this June, and this year, I wished to make it special. I wanted to do something that’s bigger than me or you, something that would benefit people around the globe who are less fortunate, when we are so blessed. After great deliberation, I decided that the best way to do that is with the help of people I know and love. Whether those people are teachers, classmates, friends, relatives, even those who I haven’t talked to or seen in years, they can make a difference. That difference is love, and those people are you.
There are more types of love than we can begin to imagine, with romantic and familial being the most common. However, the love of God and the love of man are what I choose to focus on. Because they are greater than us all, and that type of love can extend across countries, oceans, and continents; it is able to transcend language and culture and belief systems. When you think about it, it’s quite beautiful.
And that’s why the title of this fundraiser is “Mennah’s 16 for Love.”
