Me and My Hijaab’s Sponsored Walk for East Africa- WE DID IT!

24 Jan

As you all may know, the Me and My Hijaab blog recently hosted a Sponsored walk to raise money for Islamic Relief’s East African appeal. On Saturday 21st January, 7 ladies met in Edmonton and proceeded to walk at 11am. Approximately 8.1 miles and 6.5 hours later, after two prayer stops, alot of giggles and many strange looks from people- we reached our destination: Regents Park Mosque. The admin of Me and My Hijaab would like to thank all those who took part, prayed for this cause, donated and spread the word. It’s not quite over yet though. The donations page is closing on the 4th Feb- so there’s still time to donate!
