On Sunday, June 2nd, a tornado blew through Eastern Ottawa causing damage to many peoples' homes. Our friend's family, who requested to remain anonymous, had a tree fall into their living room. The damage caused almost forced them to move.
Our friend just so happens to be celebrating Eid al-Fitr this week. We felt horrible that during Ramadan and Eid that a crisis like this would force them to move out of their home until further notice. During this time of joy and fellowship, their family was unable to enjoy Eid and Ramadan to its fullest.
As an Eid present to them, we are raising money both for this family and for the residents of Ottawa that have lost during this time of celebration. Although our goal says $2,000 we have no amount that we expect. We merely want to help our friend and other victims of the tornado. Any amount helps!
