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.
Assalamu Alaykum. May peace and blessings be upon you all.
I have set this page up with the intention of helping an individual I know . He has been living on the streets, struggling to stay alive. He is truly a kind soul, with one of the most painful & heartbreaking stories. He needs help.
The funds raised will be used to provide rent for a few months. I'll personally be making sure the funds are used to provide rent. This will give him the chance to get off the streets, earn an income and live a better life. (Note: The homeless cannot work because it is not legal to employ someone who doesn't have an address).
Charity begins at home. We have a duty to show kindness & compassion, to help one another & lighten the burdens of fellow human beings. We need to do what is in our capability & serve humanity.
Let us help bring one another up. Let us unite as one. ❤️
'Whosoever alleviates [the lot of] a needy person, Allah will alleviate [his lot] in this world and the next'
Note: Being homeless means, that there is no shelter, food/water, basic necessities. It means that if you're seen sleeping on public streets/benches/doorways, you'll be moved along or fined. If you're fined & you're unable to pay, you'll be sent to prison.
The homeless are looked down upon & physically abused. The individual in question, has been beaten. He has been urinated on. He has had his tent set on fire. As a result of the injuries inflicted, he has been in hospital. The culprits were only given a warning.
I really want to help this individual, but I can't do it alone. I see goodness in him. I see a story of pain. Circumstances out of his control. He needs a chance to start afresh. He needs your help. Our help.
This is only a part of his story. I can confirm that his circumstances and need for help, are genuine. Please, if you're able to help, do so in the name of humanity, peace, love and unity. 💛✨
