Asalaam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu,

For those who haven't heard about it yet, the Baitul Salaam Network launched
their Eid Toy and Gift Drive and is asking for help. The drive is to assist
low income families by providing them with toys/gifts for children on Eid.
It is a nationwide drive, and all toys collected in each city will stay in
that city. Cash donations and gift cards will be shared with Al Maun, NY, Al
Maanah, TX, Al Madinah School, LA and Women's Affairs of Al Mutihinah, Inc.
(Shelter Program) in MD.

Most of us can spare a few dollars, so please contribute what you can and
let's help make Eid a joyous occasion for these children =)
Toys and gifts can be dropped off at the following locations:
