No excuses, T.O.

So what’re you doing on Sunday? If you’re in Toronto, the Walk for the Homeless is the place to be. The Ansaar Foundation is a new Muslim organization dedicated to eradicating homelessness in the Greater Toronto Area. The foundation has organized a walk-a-thon that will take place on Sunday, May 22nd. That’s tomorrow. It is incredible to see Muslims spearheading a creative new initiative that has managed to win the support of so many other organizations nation-wide. The money raised from this walk-a-thon will go towards a shelter that the foundation hopes to build. Who will walk with me? I want to see Muslims there supporting the efforts of this amazing organization.

If you can’t attend, you can always lend your support in other ways. You can choose to sponsor participants or donate directly to the Walk for the Homeless initiative. I’m aiming for $200. Any sponsors willing to pledge an amount?

To learn more about the Ansaar Foundation, visit its website. And if you’d like to participate in the Walk, be sure to get the latest details here. Spread the word, my friends. This is something to be proud of.
