The picture you see above is what remains of a mosque in Joplin, Missouri that was burned to the ground on the day after the Sikh Temple shooting. The Joplin community has just launched a website and Facebook page to help realize their dream of replacing their mosque and moving forward with their lives. You can help them by doing the following:
- Donate what you can – every little bit helps. We welcome your zakat contributions for this year and pledge to put them to good use in rebuilding.
- Share our IndieGoGo (click on the ‘website’ link that you see above) fundraising link with your social networks
- Give us your prayers in these last precious days of Ramadan
Please donate what you can on the site above. If you are unable to give, please do something, anything, to show that you are thinking about the Joplin community. Write a letter, make a phone call, or message your local Congressman/woman and tell them that more needs to be done to prevent these vicious attacks from re-occurring.
