UK: Charity Week

Charity Week is a grass-roots projects started in 2004 by a small team of London University students. Organized by the University of London Union Islamic Society (ULU ISoc) and in partnership with Islamic Relief, it remains one of the most successful and powerful projects ULU ISoc organizes to date. The initial aim was to raise awareness amongst the youth and communities about the tragic state of orphans around the world.

Countless Universities take part in Charity Week all over Britain, and over 5 years have raised a magnificent total of £931,000! 100% has been donated to Islamic Relief’s Orphans Campaign with ZERO admin fees. Therefore every penny is delivered directly to orphans and, amongst many things, is what makes Charity Week so special and loved across the nation!

People from the UK find very random and strange things funny, but then again they probably look at us as idiots. Good cause though, mashaAllah.

Amazing line up of speakers at this year’s Reviving the Islamic Spirit convention in Toronto, Ontario, Canada during the weekend of December 25 to 27, 2009. I wonder if the big names will be at the RIS Retreat which is a week-long program. I went to two of them and highly recommend it.
