We have 2 very important requests of you today:
1. Spread the Word about HDAY w/ #HDAY and #InspireChange – Please use the hashtags #HDAY and #InspireChange!! You are our most powerful media so please share and post that you’ll be participating and that you’ll be live tweeting/posting/instagramming/ snapchatting all day. Post pictures, share your experience and ask others how they can or are working to #InspireChange this Ramadan. Tag @IAmMercy on Twitter!
2. Pay it Forward by Giving/Raising $50 – In order to spread the #HDAY effect, our goal is to raise $30,000 by midnight! We expect over 600 volunteers today and we are relying on your help to make it happen. If each of you give/raise $50, we can reach our goal and ensure HDAY continues to serve and empower those in greatest need insha’ Allah! Be creative! Recruit your family & friends to help you raise just $50 – through social media, text messages, phone calls, etc. It’s fast and simple – just direct them to make their give directly at www.humanitarianday.com/donate.

Pray for success & goodness – HDAY is all about serving Allah by serving humanity. Please make dua for our collective success and meaningful impact tomorrow and please make dua for all those we will be serving directing and indirectly.
May Allah accept our efforts in His cause and help us all work together to fulfill our mission of “turning one day into a life’s mission” Insha’ Allah!
See you tomorrow morning bright and early!
