For 30 years now, Human Appeal Australia have helped the poor and needy all over the world. with the will of Allah, we have continuously tried to find different channels to provide assistance for the thousands of orphans, widows, deprived, war-stricken communities and those affected by natural disasters.
In the essence of always being with you on the road to goodness, we launched a project in 2015 called “My Grand Iftar”. This is a unique initiative aimed at embracing the spirit of the Holy Month of Ramadan by getting our families, friends and communities involved. Those who choose to participate are not only raising money for those who need it, but also raising awareness to the plight of the less fortunate around the world.
It is a chance to involve loved ones in a supportive, caring and warm environment where not only do you sit together and share great food, but also encouraging others to do the same.
The purpose of My Grand Iftar will be to raise money for a specific appeal or project as outlined in our host kit. You can fundraise in various ways, from getting a business to sponsor your Iftar, collecting donations from family and friends, or even running an auction at your Iftar. It is essential that your invitees are well informed of the purpose in order to achieve a successful outcome.
Once you register your interest, our host kit makes it easy for you by providing ideas on how to plan and execute your Iftar, how to inform family and friends, nominating the appeal/project, choosing a menu, how much you are aiming to raise and finally ways in which you can be creative in the process.
