Warm The Streets 2
Thursday, August 06, 2009
As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuh

Two years ago we ran a Warm The Streets project collecting winter scarves for the homeless of Toronto.

Our grateful recipients expressed a need for socks, and so insha'Allah this year we can fulfill their request.



Details of project: Send in as many socks as you can before November 1. They can be crocheted, knitted, bought. Please make sure they are adult size, in neutral colours and suitable for cold weather. You may also add a note saying who it is made by, etc.

Other ways to help:
:: Run a Sock Drive at your local masjid, school, MSA, etc.
:: Post the banner (on my side bar) on your site linked to this post.
:: Inform family, friends, co-workers, and classmates about this project.
:: Donate money for socks to be purchased. (email me)
:: Pray for those who are less-fortunate.

How they will be delivered: These will be wrapped and individually handed out to those on the streets of Toronto (Ontario, Canada), with a packed meal. I especially encourage those who live in Ontario to participate!

Participants allowed: International

Ages allowed: All ages.

Cost Limit: None.




All socks must be in no later than December 1, 2009.


If you would like to help, please email (amtullah79@yahoo.ca) me for an address where you can mail or drop off the socks.


Jazak'Allahu khair.
