Imam Zaid’s Challenge: Donate $60 and Then Get 10 people to Donate in the Next 24 Hours
While the original goal of raising $50,000 was met with resounding success, the work is not done. During the closing remarks, Imam Zaid Shakir exhorted us not to remain content with reaching the goal, but to soar above and beyond it. He’s calling upon each and everyone one of us to spread the word about the ills of malnourishment and wants each of you to find 10 people within the next 24 hours who can donate. To facilitate this, SeekersGuidance will give a free course for the Fall 2009 semester to anyone who donates over $500.
