View of the Week (Weekly Edition): How The Muslim Community is Making a Difference

LaunchGood has launched two initiatives which we are pleased to feature here to underscore the good that organizations such as LaunchGood undertake to overcome misconceptions about our World: :


I was enjoying my third ever Father's Day Sunday when I heard the news about Nabra, a young Muslim teen brutally murdered in Virginia. Shortly after, more bad news - a man had driven a truck into a crowd of Muslims in Finsbury Park.
It turned into a difficult and busy evening for myself and the entire LaunchGood team. Now more than ever we need to stand together in solidarity with our sisters and brothers. No amount of money will bring Nabra or the Finsbury Park victims back, but here's our small part to support those in the community who want to show their solidarity with the victims, and we pray it brings some healing and peace to the hearts of the families involved.
Walaikum as salaam wa rahmatullah (with God's peace and blessings),
