PLEASE help women of domestic abuse!

This cause is dear and near to my heart. Please help Baitul Salaam! All they need is a van to be able to move food, furniture donations. If 500 people donate $10 they would have their van. PLEASE!

The Baitul Salaam Network, Inc. a 12 year old domestic violence awareness organization is fund raising to continue and expand our work. We have assisted 618 women and children who were temporarily homeless due to some form of abuse (physical, emotional and/or economic). We have been able with the support of approximately 300 active supporters to answer 9,000+ calls for assistance yearly, make referrals for medical, legal, professional counseling, provide diversity training for organizations such as the Salvation Army, masjid/Islamic centers (most recent the Islamic Center of August, GA) and network to have an impact on legislation on all levels through following organizations: National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, GA Coalition Against Domestic Violence, local domestic violence task forces and Masjid Al Bayyinah who host the only Islamic managed Food Pantry in the metro Atlanta.

We need your help to achieve our goals.

You can send your donations using paypal.com to haleem1@aol.com. Or send by mail to: Baitul Salaam Network, Inc., PO Box 115470, Atlanta, GA 30310.

Baitul Salaam and Masjid Al Bayyinah are working together as partners on the Food Pantry project and the van/truck will be used to also expand the recycling program and to pick up food donations from local Food Banks, grocery stores and other organizations. The van/truck will also be used to pick up furniture and appliance donations to the Baitul Salaam Network, Inc. and Masjid Al Bayyinah.
