Proud to be a Rescue Ranger By Anaum Allimulla.

Helping people makes me happy. And when I saw the pictures in the news about the people suffering in Philippines due to destruction caused by the Typhoon Haiyan ,I felt very sad. I felt bad when I thought that here I was so comfortable in my home surrounded by my parents and friends and the people in Philippines did not have a roof over their head , no food and water , some of the children had also lost their families too. So My friends and I formed a group “ The Rescue Rangers” and started raising funds for the Filipinos .We wrote on the website and also went to various stores and spoke to people about our cause. I felt very proud to be a part of this group and makes me feel happy that I was able to make a difference and help the Filipinos . This also has taught me to be more thankful for the things Allah has given me.
“Alhamdulillah “. I hope and pray to Allah that I keep continuing  to help people in any way I can.

The Rescue Rangers definitely love working with their friends while caring for others.Photo: The Rescue Rangers made $134 at Boscovs to help the Filipinos make their houses again after Typhoon Haiyan left them homeless. May Allah reward all those who visited them at Boscovs to show their support.

Why The Rescue Rangers?

  I joined the Rescue Rangers for many reasons. I wanted to join because I have a lot of things to be thankful for.  But in the Philippines after the typhoon many Filipinos didn't have much at all. I can't even imagine not having a home. In the Philippines this did happen. They lost their homes, food, clean water, even families, and lots of other basic needs. When my dad went all the way to Philippines to help out, I knew I should help out too. I liked being in this project because I had fun with my friends and at the same time I was helping out in the Philippines.   It was fun writing on the websites, going to different places to talk about the situation, being with my friends, but most of all it was the best to know that I was helping the homeless.

Why I joined The Rescue Rangers

why i joined the rescue rangers

I  Joined the Rescue Rangers because I wanted to help the unfortunate and the needy.  Today we see many poor people all over the world who are waiting for help from us. Usually the people who help out and donate are adults or the elderly. So we are lucky that the “Rescue Rangers” team consists of kids who are ages 10 and under. Helping the needy is important and is one of the 5 pillars of Islam… ZAKAT.   I enjoy helping out at the Zakat Foundation, and I think that if they are consistent and if they keep striving to reach their goal it will be accomplished.

Being a Part of the Rescue Rangers by Hana S. Hubert

In my life, I have SO much to be thankful for, Alhamdulilah, for my kind and caring parents, for a shelter, and so much more. I know that not all kids are as fortunate as me, so I should be grateful for all that Allah has blessed me with, and I am. But simply being grateful isn't always enough. I realized that, since I am lucky enough to have all the basic necessities and more, I should help those need it. That's why I joined the Rescue Rangers, and we helped build homes for the Phillipines!

Being part of the Rescue Rangers made me realize how good it feels to help others and make a difference. Working as a group helped me learn skills I will use for the rest of my life, and I became closer to the other members. I have gained so much new information, and learned about a country I had never thought about before. I am now aware of the devastation natural disasters can cause. There were some challenges for me though like creating the the web site and putting it all together. Through the process, I gained confidence and the knowledge that I could do anything I set my mind to.  I know that the Rescue Rangers Group is a worthy organization that I'll always be glad to participate in. I know we'll accomplish many great things in the future.

Having Fun Whlie working for the greater good.......

As our team continues to raise funds for the Philippines, we held an event at Boscov’s where people could enjoying shopping and at the same time got a chance to meet and greet the Rescue Rangers. We sold custom made bracelets, delicious brownies, home made bread filled with cheese and cupcakes. We all worked together to make and bake stuff for the Boscov’s event. We worked as a team and we got everything done that we needed to do, also spread the awareness about our project . The best part of being a Rescue Ranger is that you got to experience working together and showing teamwork. I personally had an amazing time being a part of this team and also the design manager who helped out making flyers. It was fun when we got to go to stores and Farmers market to raise funds and were able to provide roof a lot people who had lost their home due to the Typhoon in Philippines.

We also made colorful posters to advertise. When I joined the Rescue Rangers I got to use my creativity, I explored new stuff, learned to work as a team. This whole experience taught me to be more thankful to Allah for the thing I have been blessed with and makes me feel really happy that my team members and I were able to make a difference and bring a smile on a certain number of people. I pray that I can continue to do my part in helping and reaching out to people in any way I can.

Rescue Rangers

This is really fun to be part of the Rescue Rangers group! I am writer and a Vice President of the group. You might ask why did I join the Rescue Rangers group? Well I got a roof under my head, food, water, and clothes. I don't need anything else. So why not give back? I have gone to most of the events we hosted. I helped out with posters. I wrote on this site. It wasn't so hard to keep track and everything so here is another reason I joined.

How it feels to help the homeless?

 It feels really nice to help other people. The people of Philippines are sad but we're trying to help them. So that they can be happy. They need lots of help right now. Many houses were destroyed because a typhoon hit them.

A Day at the Farmers Market.

On January 11, 2014 the Rescue Rangers group were at the New Castle Farmers Market. My friends and I were very happy with the effort we had put in and also the eagerness of people hearing from us about the relief effort. Alhamdulillah we managed to raise almost $ 170 with various fun games like Foosball, Tic Tac throw and much more. We sold some pretty hand made bracelets, headbands, scarfs, and puppets. Must say the all time favorite was the face painting by our friend Hana who did an awesome job. We made amazing posters that we hung up on the walls at Farmers Market. We took turns at each of the activities and talking to people about our cause for the homeless in the Philippines. At the end Br.Murat bought us all ice cream! Which we totally enjoyed on that rainy afternoon. It was a fun day with an experience we will remember and makes me happy to know that my friends and I are able to make a difference for the people of Philippines.

At The Farmers Market By Hana S. Hubert


" They asked you (O Muhammad) What they should spend in charity. Say: 'Whatever you spend with a good heart, give it to parents, relatives, orphans, the helpless, and travelers in need, Whatever good you do, God is aware of it." -The Holy Qu'ran 2:215.

We the Rescue Rangers are continuing our mission to inspire others and take action. Today we went to the farmers market to raise money and awareness. I had a face painting stand and there was fun games for kids to enjoy. Altogether we raised $168, by working together as a team, taking turns holding up posters we made. In the fun area for the kids, we had activities including: Foosball, Tic Tac Throw, Limbo, and Legos. We also sold bracelets and scarhattins which is a scarf hat and mittens combined. The colorful posters we previously made hung on the wall, advertising our group and and what we stand for in bright handwritten letters. We had a nice surprise at the end of the day when brother Murat bought us all ice cream! In all, it was a great day, and reminded me how good it feels to be with friends while raising money for such a worthy cause.

Helping people makes me happy. My parents tell me that " To feel good ,you do good".I always knew that with every good deed we do, we get a reward from Allah. Just imagine how happy we will be with the rewards we get when we help the children of Philippines and bring a smile on their faces. My mom actually showed me a picture sent by some people from Bogo city in Philippines who were happy because Zakat Foundation was helping them put a roof over their houses. I was so happy to see the smallest effort made by us. 

So come be a part of it and join us at the New Castle Farmers Market and help us raise funds for a new and brighter future for the people of Philippines.

Raising funds in another country

I went to Toronto, Canada with my family last week for the RIS convention. There we met lots of people. Rescue Rangers had also setup a booth to raise funds for Typhoon Haiyan victims. There were so many other booths but we were the only ones raising funds for Philippines. We talked to so many people and told them about the Rescue Rangers. Most of them were very helpful and donated money. Some of them signed up for the news.

At the end when we were counting the money, it was interesting to see both US Dollars and Canadian Dollars in the collection box. Canadians call a dollar 'loonie' and two dollars 'toonies'. Loonies and Toonies come in coins and not paper currency.

The one thing we learned with this experience is that if you are doing something good then it is very easy to tell people about it and to make them help. It does not matter whether you are in USA or in Canada.

RIS Convention

Last week I went to Canada for the RIS convention. We had a booth there for ZF. The Rescue Rangers also had a small table at the booth. We sold bracelets and had a donation box. 4 Rescue Rangers including me were there staying at the table. Those 4 were Yusuf Patel, Mariam Patel, Meryem Kose, and me. Yusuf Patel went around to people and asked, "Do you want to help people who don't have houses?"  Not many could say 'no' to that question.  So he collected about $100 the first day! Meanwhile Meryem, Mariam, and I made bracelets to sell. Lots of girls came to our booth to look at the bracelets and choose one. Two girls even came to help us make bracelets. Alhamdullilah we raised about $200 at the convention. Overall we had lots of fun selling bracelets and raising money for Philippines.
