2019 Ramadan Berbagi / Ramadan to Share
05/08/2019 @ 8:00 AM - 05/28/2019 @ 12:00 AM EDT$12 – $65
Ramadan is all about sharing with those around us. So let’s celebrate Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr / Hari Raya moments with family and friends, while also sharing this joy to orphans in need in Indonesia.
As previously done in the past couple of years during Ramadan month, ICONEans who live in or outside New England regions are once again invited to order and enjoy the scrumptious selections of Indonesian cookies (kue kering) and cakes with family and friends. This year, the cookies and cakes are made available by our partner and friend, a prominent Indonesian bakery store in Philadelphia, Z’s Kitchen. While purchasing these cookies and cakes, we would also call for your kindness to make a donation (sedekah) that will benefit the orphans in Indonesia. We are expanding our charity reach outside Java by directing 100% of this year’s donation to Panti Asuhan Aisyiyah Siti Khadijah, an orphanage center in Samarinda, East of Kalimantan, Indonesia. We would appreciate your donation to this orphanage center with the amount choice of $20, $25, $35, or $50.
Should you only wish to donate and not ordering cookies or cakes, that is OK too. And should you wish to donate a different amount, you can send your check to our treasurer, Elvina Setia, payable to Indonesian Community of New England, Inc. with the address of 1 Jacobs St., Peabody, MA, 01960. Orders and a donation can also be done through Venmo at https://venmo.com/ICONE
