BISMILLAH AR-RAHMAN AR-RAHEEM,
As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum wa-Rahmatullah wa-Barakaatu,
Over the last few years, we have run our Eid al Adh’ha sacrifice program with your strong support.
In 2013, more than a hundred families from around the world joined our program and Alhamdulillah – 160 goats were slaughtered on their behalf. Fresh meat was distributed to more than 450 orphaned families, widowed women, and to other deserving people known to us through our Islamic Centers program – in total, your generosity has benefitted over 960 deprived families.
This year, with your continued support, we want to reach even more needy communities and share the joy of this coming Eid al-Adha Insha’Allah.
Running this program is time consuming and labor intensive as it involves communicating with our kind patrons, collecting and transmitting donations, purchasing the livestock, slaughtering and distributing to our 23 Islamic distribution centers followed by further distribution to the final beneficiaries.
We have found that the prices of livestock tend to skyrocket the closer we get to the holidays and therefore we are writing to solicit your kind participation in advance. We request you to confirm to us your participation ASAP and are happy to receive payment at a later date. You are welcome to also pass over this report to your friends and family members. The cost of a single healthy goat is currently US$ 100 – this includes cost of slaughter and distribution.
Attached please find a short Power Point Presentation of last year’s sacrifice activities which we sent to our kind supporters.
