Weʼre raising £2,000 to give in charity for the less fortunate, in the memory of my beloved big brother Mohammed Zahid Iqbal.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
On 14th of November, our brother who was also a son, husband, uncle and a friend to many, left this world. His life was a blessing, his memory a treasure, loved beyond words and missed beyond measure. May he rest in peace. He fought hard and strong and spent his last difficult days in Bradford Royal Infirmary where he took his last breath. He has left his family and friends with the most amazing memories that make us smile. However those memories bring a wave of sadness too, because the realisation kicks in that we will not be able to create any new memories and that's the hardest part, but one thing we know is that he will forever stay in our hearts.
This has been a extremely difficult time for my parents, who watched their beloved son become the fine young gentleman he became.
Inspired by values of our faith, in his memory, along with members of our family and friends, we want to raise money to help the less fortunate by opening an Orphanage to build a brighter future with education and give support and shelter for young children who have no parents. Along with this we want to raise money for water pumps/wells in aid to provide easy access to safe water. We want to create something that will not only provide immediate relief but for the long-term.
The reason for not supporting any registered charities is due to us wanting to do this with our own hands in the memory of Zahid. This way we can provide help wherever needed most. This will be an on-going charity for him for years to come.
