In Nepal (located in Asia) there has been a earthquake that happened there recently. This disaster had cost more than 4,600 peoples death, and more than 9,000 people injured. 8 million people across Nepal have been affected, and among that about 1 million are children in need of help urgently. Right now the survivors or facing challenges. There is less hope now of survivors people can save in a hour, it has dropped (the rate of surviving). Thousands of people have now become homeless because of this atrocity. As time goes on the death toll is expected to rise. This disaster we call a earthquake has caused many disasters some permanent and other aren't but still hard to fix.

Trip to CHOP (By Yusuf Patel)

We were working on a project to collect books for the kids in the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and A I DuPont Hospital. We started the project in January and collected 1000 books. I know what it’s like to stay at the hospital because I stayed there a lot. Now let me tell you about the trip to CHOP. My dad and my friend’s  dads drove us to the hospital. We had a good time. We also gave them a check of $500 that we had collected last year. Some of us also played Pokemon while we were there.

Book Drop Off (By Mariam Patel)

On Saturday, April 18th, we gathered at the ZF Center to get all the boxes filled with books. They were really heavy so all the grown-ups had to pick them together. While driving to the hospital, we sat in different cars with our friends. When we arrived at the hospital there were people from the staff who helped take the books to the library. After taking group picture, we went back to ZF Center and had a pizza party. The hospital was called the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The adventure was really cool!!!

The Bookdrop Off to CHOP By: Adeeba Allimulla

We reached our goal of 1,000 books!! Our hard work and our team work from 2 months has finally paid off, especially when you know that you have collected more than we expected. So, tomorrow, Saturday the 18th of April we are going to CHOP (The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia) to drop off 500 books to the hospital's library. It gives an awesome feeling to know that our little contribution is making a difference in someone's life.

1,000 books, sucsess!

On Monday, April 6th, there was an Arts & Crafts day, to celebrate collecting 1,000 books for the Children's Hospitals. I had a stand helping people make masks, draw pictures, and decorate paper plates. I like being creative and making creations from ordinary objects—so this was a great time for me and others to use simple paper plates and coloring supplies and turn them into pieces of artwork. It's nice to spread your passion for the benefit of others. Being a member of the Rescue rangers, it feels great to positively impact peoples lives

Spreading Awareness

Yesterday, there was a volunteer fair at BrandyWine Library. It was about half an hour to get there and we came home at like 9:30. I went there to spread awareness about different ZF projects. It was fun to tell others about our project and tell them what we did the past few years. Many people came to our table to learn about our zf activities and now more people know about our RR project. I am glad I went there, and hope to go again to spread more awareness.

Having Fun Making Paper Planes by Adam Hubert

        I love making paper air planes.  I have fun seeing them soar.  I come up with my own creative designs.  My mom tells me "I'm smart."  I enjoying  making it everyday.  On April 6th, we had an arts and crafts party at ZF Center to celebrate collecting 1,000 books for children hospitals. On that night, I got a table to teach others how to make the planes.  It was nice to share with others the things I enjoy doing.  After we made our own special cool planes, we had a paper plane race. It was dazzling to watch them fly. I had so much fun.  Thank you for everyone who helped us reach our goal.

Our movie night on Friday March 20  in the Zakat foundation was a big success. The whole Islamic community came.We reached our goal .Our goal was to raise  1000 books. Instead  of money  each person gave 5 books.As the people were giving books away for the needy, I was thinking we should  give some to the library  and the hospital. Kids in the hospital can read books when they are bored We watched the movie big hero six. I am  pretty sure everyone liked the movie.  We got cupcakes as snacks.The cupcakes looked like Baymax. KIDS at home should read books and also watch big hero six again . Sometimes ,instead of reading at home go to a a  library or a bookstore.    I think I love doing this project.It would  be fun  if we do another thing like this ...
