ECN is in the “Ramadan Ramp-up” stage, preparing to host our biggest Ramadan campaign yet. There are two components to this campaign that we would like you to know about.

The first is featured on our website as our “Ramadan 2012” campaign at the following site: . If you are interested in helping ECN fundraise for its initiatives in the realm of pediatric oncology in Egypt, you can use the aforementioned fundraising platform to fundraise either as a team – made up of friends, coworkers, or family members – or as an individual.

Your progress will be monitored on the site after you register your or your team’s information. The purpose of the online platform is to encourage people to donate directly to your initiative. An individual or team can set a fundraising goal and time period within which to have it met. We would like to encourage all of you that are committed to ECN to register as an individual or a team and ask people to donate their Ramadan zakat to your cause via the fundraising platform. One of our goals this Ramadan is to fundraise at least $500,000 for our projects with Children’s Cancer Hospital Egypt 57357 and others, and we expect our online fundraising platform to significantly contribute to this. Please spread the word to your friends and family about it, and visit the website above to register and get started! For more information, please email .

The other component to our campaign involves our network of national chapters. We will be hosting fundraising events in celebration of Ramadan all throughout the United States, including in Los Angeles, CA, Dallas, TX, Dearborn, MI, Washington, DC, and New York City, NY. Please stay tuned to our Facebook group at to keep informed about upcoming events in your area.

Please help us in our efforts by donating your zakat to ECN and sharing our cause with us. ECN thanks you for your help and enthusiasm!
