On Tuesday's and Thursdays, zakat has a summer camp, to raise money for the children hospital's. The camp's activities are taught by youth leaders, and are forty minutes long. Such classes are: cooking, art, origami, crocheting, science fun, and more.the class I am teaching is called nature fun, for ages 3-6. I hope to teach kids of all ages about our environment, inshallah. In my class, we get to color, glue, and cut, to make nature-related activities, and play fun games to test their knowledge of plants and animals. I also have a website, ZFforevernature.blogspot.com. We have raised $432 at our camp.

On Saturday, June 14, the Rescue Rangers went to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia to sponsor brunch in the coffee break room. The room provides a safe haven for the families whose kids are sick and have to stay there for a long period of time. We laid out appetizing, appealing, mouthwatering, heavenly and delicious food, such as brownies, sweet bread, banana's, apples, cookies, and more. We were there for 1 1/2 hours, but the coffee break lasted longer.
The hospital provides many services for the families, like a laundry room so that families could wash their dirty clothes, instead of going home to do so. There are also beds for the parents to spend the night. I can't imagined how awful it must be to be stuck in a room for months on ends.
The people that came were delighted so see all the palatable food laid our for them. It's nice to make a difference, even in a small way. Our motto is Inspiring others to take action and make a difference, and we felt like we did just that, that day.
