Ramadan Mubarak from the 99 Orphan team! We hope everyone is enjoying and benefiting from this blessed month.
For our first iftar, we traveled to Lancaster, Pennsylvania to attend a 99 Orphan crafts show held by the Lancaster 99 Orphan team. We also gave a talk about our project and asked for donations. Alhamdulillah, we were able to raise a few hundred dollars for orphans and are currently on our 55th orphan.
Here are some pictures from the Lancaster event.

The Lancaster community also very kindly gifted us with a delicious cookie cake! Jazak Allahu Khairan, Lancaster community!
|We devoured it. It was simply amazing. 🙂|
The picture of the cookie cake probably wasn’t the best picture to put considering that you are probably fasting right now. But as you yearn for food, remember the kids around the world who never get treats like this because they have no one to care for them.
Please remember orphans this Ramadan, when every good deed is counted so many times more than in any other month. Don’t let orphans be without necessary provisions this Ramadan.
