Ramadan Kareem, everyone! Ramadan is the holiest month in Islam’s Hijri calendar and this year, it stretches from March 22nd to April 21st according to the Gregorian calendar. Ramadan is commonly described as a month of introspection and prayer and observants celebrate by fasting (or, abstaining from food and drink) from sunup to sun down.
Last month was National Reading Month but at SHARE Detroit, we are proud that many nonprofits on our platform have missions that support reading, literacy and education.
While there is no doubt that all of the nonprofits on our SHARE platform are leaving a significant impact, we are happy to recognize the following few that support the value of reading and literacy.
“From the first settlers who came to our shores, from the first American Indian families who befriended them, men and women have worked together to build this nation. Too often the women were unsung and sometimes their contributions went unnoticed. But the achievements, leadership, courage, strength and love of the women who built America was as vital as that of the men whose names we know so well.” - Jimmy Carter in his recognition of National Women's History Week
“To be afraid is to behave as if the truth were not true.”
- Bayard Rustin
“A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself.” - Oprah Winfrey
While any Tuesday can be a #GivingTuesday, this past November 29th was the official celebration of Giving Tuesday, a day that encourages people to do good. We here at SHARE held a local competition to spread the word about Giving Tuesday in Detroit. Winners of the competition each received $1,000 to continue their important work.
