Mosque Cares Community Garden Kick Off!!!!

DONATE HERE: #CommunityGarden contribution:


The Mosque Cares [Ministry of Imam W. Deen Mohammed] nonprofit organization has established the Community Garden Initiative.  This dawah effort is a hands on educational program involving our youth in creating sustainable, organic gardens.   

Gardening promotes community involvement, community development, and social interaction.  Community gardens beautify neighborhoods, encourage self-reliance, and produce tastier nutritious produce.   

The project teaches all aspects of organic gardening including soil preparation, planting, watering, weeding, and harvesting.  We also advocate recycling and composting.  Throughout the growing season we share fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs with the wider community. 

This project is 100% donor funded.  Consider making Your contribution today. With your help we can play a part in making our world healthy, sustainable, and enriched.

Earth Day 2015 - #TMCUp2U

People of all faiths live in the same world and share the same resources.  We will all be impacted by climate change and we are all responsible for working together on solutioning environmental issues.  The Mosque Cares is working to promote collective grass roots efforts as one way to tackle climate change.  Every positive action we take as individuals affects change.  Our campaign centers around each one of us reducing our carbon footprint, which collectively equates to reducing devastating impacts to the earth, our planet.  Faith and logic tells us to respect the earth.  Our livelihood comes from the planet itself, so we should work with nature without causing irreparable damage to it.  Get involved and work to improve life.  Quoting the Holy Quran "And Allah sends down rain from the skies, and gives therewith life to the earth after its death: verily in this is a Sign for those who listen." [16:65]

Today the TMC Youth In Action committee kicks off the "Up To You" campaign in support of sustainable living.  We encourage you to post ideas or things you do in support of planet sustaining activities using #TMCUp2U

Why do we need an Earth Day?  Because it works! Earth Day broadens the base of support for environmental programs, rekindles public commitment and builds community activism around the world through a broad range of events and activities. Earth Day is the largest civic event in the world, celebrated simultaneously around the globe by people of all backgrounds, faiths and nationalities. More than a billion people participate in Earth Day campaigns every year.

April 13, 2015 - First National Muslim Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill

The U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), participated in the first united Muslim American Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill, which took place April 13, 2015 at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. 

One of the next steps in growing the Muslim American community’s political capacity and ability to “move the needle” in Washington, D.C. is to host a national Muslim day of congressional advocacy on Capitol Hill.

This event connected national, regional and state Muslim organizations, community members and activists with over a third of the U.S. House of Representatives and a half of the Senate. USCMO scheduled face-to-face meetings between Muslim delegates and legislators that focused on the domestic priorities of the Muslim American community.
