Thanksgiving Homeless care kit Drive

"The most generous of people is the one who gives to those from whom he has no hope of return"- Imam Hussain ibn Ali as.

Imam Hussain as inspires me everyday to be a person of compassion, faith, and persistence no matter how dire the situation is. As a part of the team give back initiative, we gave care packages to the homeless in the Chicago area. We invite you to join and give back to the community! ‪#‎TeamGiveBack‬

Today, while giving out care packages to the homeless for thanksgiving, we came across a man, John, whose positivity, faith in God and trust in Him almost moved us to tears. 
"I lost all 15 of my family members this year. I've been homeless for almost 3 months now. But I have so much to be grateful for. God has given me so much, but more than anything he's given me humility. He rewarded me when I needed and punished me when I had to be punished. He is all I have. Thank you girls, but thank you more for stopping and talking to me, for showing that you care. People give me money everyday but not a lot stop to talk. Thank you girls, always keep your faith".

"Time is the biggest charity you can give to the needy"- Imam Ali (as)

An eye-opening experience filled with so many heartfelt stories, just leaves me saying ShukranAllah for everything I have.
