Seems everywhere, Muslims are doing something for the people of Somalia. The link at the bottom is FB.

Today 7:30pm at Islamic Center East Lansing

YOU CAN HELP NOW! DONATE JUST ONE DOLLAR EACH DAY TO THE DONATION BOX LOCATED OUTSIDE THE PRAYER AREA AT THE ISLAMIC CENTER OF GREATER LANSING LABELED "SOMALIA RELIEF" Ramadan Muburak to all! This is the time to check yourself in the mirror, In this blessed month of Ramadan every action is amplified, every good deed magnified. There is great reward for feeding the mouths of people who are fasting a day. Imagine the reward of helping keep you Muslim brothers and sisters alive!! By simply donating whatever you can you can save a life, a child who may grow up to do magnificent things. And with every great thing they do you will be rewarded. This famine is real, these pictures are real, these corpses are real. As we sit in cooled AC houses, with ample food for suhoor and iftar, remember those who dream of these things. Remember our muslim brothers and sisters who are dying. Don't wait until we will have to answer to Allah for turning our backs on our fellow Muslimeen. You are not limited to only one dollar, this is simply a baseline, a starting point to encourage people to give. If you can afford more, then by all means garner as much Jannah as you can by donating as much as you can. Still not convinced?...... "They as you (O Muhammad) what they should spend in charity. Say:'Whatever you spend with a good heart, give it to parents, relatives, orphans, the helpless, and travellers in need. Whatever good you do, Allah is aware of it'"-2:215 "We were hungry and couldn't get work. We traveled as a family but soon after we arrived my husband died, leaving me a widow and my children without a father. I just need help — anything." — Dainabo, a 30-year-old mother of three, who arrived in Dadaab, Kenya after walking for six days to escape the famine in Somalia (via https://my.care.org/site/Donat​ion2?df_id=9600&9600.donation=​landing&s_src=redppcgdadaab960​0&s_subsrc=todaysworst9600soma​liafamine&cr=humanitariancrisi​s&gclid=CMi7j6TjrqoCFcjAKgodhh​2GYA) "Some families have walked two weeks. Two weeks. Sleeping where they could, pushing on to get to this camp. The children are much smaller than they should be.....A mother walking, arrives at the clinic, takes her baby off her back and finds it has died without her knowing. I can't even imagine the pain this causes her.- Diabab, Kenya (via https://my.care.org/site/Donat​ion2?df_id=9600&9600.donation=​landing&s_src=redppcgdadaab960​0&s_subsrc=todaysworst9600soma​liafamine&cr=humanitariancrisi​s&gclid=CMi7j6TjrqoCFcjAKgodhh​2GYA) 11.5 million – People needing urgent help across the Horn of Africa 78,000 – Somali refugees who have fled to Kenya or Ethiopia since May 6 per 10,000 – Children dying daily in Somalia’s famine-hit regions 30 – Percentage of population so malnourished they need special feeding 20 – Percentage of fresh billion-dollar aid appeal funded so far $300 million – Funds needed just for Somalia in the next two months alone 60 – Years since it was this dry in some areas 9 – Months since early-warning systems predicted potential disaster 4 – Months until rain is expected (via http://www.csmonitor.com/World​/Africa/2011/0722/East-Africa-​s-famine-by-the-numbers)

And if he acknowledges Me in an assembly,
I acknowledge him in a far superior assembly."

Assalamu Alaiykum,

Sr Halima I couldn't have put it better myself.

Please DONATE to the HORN OF AFRICA DROUGHT appeal. This is a stark reminder that millions are fasting without food or water every, and not just because it's Ramadan.

For each person who takes a quiz, a child will be fed.  So they say.  Don't know if it's legit....
