The Cause: Eid Gift Project

Eid is a time of joy and celebration. It’s a time when we give thanks to Allah (SWT) and celebrate with friends, family, neighbours and loved ones. Alhamdulillah!

During both Eid we come together and celebrate. For children in particular, receiving gifts makes these days extra special.

Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said:

“Give gifts to one another, you will love each other.” (al-Adab al-Mufrad)

Eid Gifts: Bring a smile to a child’s face

Sadly, not everyone can afford to give their children something special this Eid. Families living in poverty, widows and orphaned children are simply struggling to survive.

By taking part in the family 5K challenge, you’ll be helping to make a child’s Eid extra special. Your donation will help provide:

  • Clothing
  • School bags and educational materials
  • Toys
  • Sweets

This Eid, Islamic Relief is delivering gifts in 13 countries worldwide including AfghanistanAlbaniaSomalia and Syria to children in need.

Fundraising Ideas*

Smarties: Buy 20 tubes of Smarties and give them to 20 of your friends. Your one condition? Once they’ve enjoyed the Smarties, they return the tubes back to you filled with as many £1 coins as they can collect in a week. You’d be surprised how much you can raise using this tactic!

Bake Sale: A true classic. How about adding a theme to your fundraiser depending on the cause you’re raising for? E.g. a blue theme if you’re fundraising to provide clean water. Or you could really go for it, sell other homemade delights alongside your delicious baked goods like milkshakes, smoothies or classic desserts (trifle, cake & custard etc.).

Car Wash: Probably the most fun thing you could do, and all you need is water, a bucket, a sponge and some car shampoo. You could do this at your school or workplace, or you could even ask a local business to let you use their grounds/car park. Try make it more interesting by doing it in fancy dress and get your family and friends in on all the fun!
