3 Years running

Dear Family and Friends,

I want to thank you first for taking the time to read about my fundraiser.  A lot of you know who I am and many of you might remember me from the fundraiser I created in 2011 to save my friend Mirvats life to remove her brain tumors.  My life first changed when I lost my aunt Hala over 10 years ago unexpectedly,  that truly broke my heart, then we lost many other close aunts, uncles, and family members and or they were diagnosed with Cancer.  Then a little over 5 years ago I almost lost a good friend to this ugly thing we call CANCER, but we were all able to help her get the surgery to save her life.  It has changed me for the better.  I do not take life for granted and I know now more than ever that life is too short.  For those that remember my posts I promised myself and god that I will always help those that are less fortunate and need it for as  long as I am well enough to do so.  That is why I am always working. Though I do not post often the things I have done I have kept my promise to God and myself.  I am working on a nonprofit organization to keep helping those that are need, the less fortunate, and anyone that is ill that cannot get the treatment they need because of not having the funds needed.  This Eid 2016 I want it to be the start of a new chapter in my life to let everyone know what I have been working on and inshallah (god willing) with your help you can spread the word to help me provide assistance to those in desperate need overseas. I chose now because this is the time for giving and we all have to give our share of ZAKAT so what better time than now! I am not asking for you to donate your life savings.  I am asking each and everyone of you to donate as little or as much as you can and also share my link with everyone you know.  It truly does add up quickly.  The money donated will go to familes that need food, school supplies for the upcoming new year for their children and a few dollars to have in case they need anything they do not want to ask us for and any treatments that are needed that have been delayed because of finances.  I have a group of volunteers that are helping me with delivering what is needed to each and every family that could use a lending hand.  I want this Eid 2016 to be a special one for those kids and parents.  We all know that back home the Eid is a once a year even that every kid likes to dress up for.  If you have any questions at all please feel free to ask.  If I tell you about each and every family that I hear about or know about it will break your heart.  Please find it in your hearts to give your Zakat to this fundraiser.  I will be sure to update everyone on what we were able to do for these familes.  Thank you in advance for any donations submitted.  Please spread the word!!!

Best Regards, 

Jehad Ouri, CMA (AAMA)
