Eid Goodie Bags
Eid-ul-Fitr is the Islamic religious holiday following the holy month of Ramadan, during which Muslims fast everyday from dawn to dusk. In many Muslim countries, Eid is celebrated for three days. Eid traditionally starts with a morning prayer, followed by a short sermon. After the prayer, Muslims wish those around them a happy Eid. People typically spend their holiday visiting relatives and friends, wearing traditional clothes, giving gifts or money to children, and donating to charity.
This year, COMMUNITY SJP is teaming up with a local mosque to provide Eid goodie bags to 200 kids. Each goodie bag will include: a deck of cards, bubbles, pencils, glow sticks, and an assortment of candies. Items will be purchased in bulk for cost-efficiency purposes. To sponsor 4 goodie bags for $10, please visit PayPal or Venmo.
