GIVTAR 2016: Fast ~ Reflect ~ Give
This Ramadan, CivicMuslims is excited to present the Second Annual #GIVTAR: a special iftaar at the beautiful Centre for Social Innovation at Regent Park to give back to our local food banks in support of the Give 30 campaign.
We will break fast together over delicious food and hear from inspirational speakers about the power of fighting hunger in our communities.
Give 30 is a national grassroots campaign that asks people of all faiths and backgrounds to donate to their local food banks during the month of Ramadan.
Last year, CivicMuslims + #GIVTAR raised over $8,000 for food banks across Canada. With your #GIVTAR ticket you can select one of three GTA food banks to support: Daily Bread Food Bank, North York Harvest, or Mississauga Food Bank. Net proceeds from all tickets will go directly to the food banks.
There will be no fundraising at #GIVTAR. Just inspiration. .
KEYNOTE SPEAKER: ZAIB SHAIKH – CANADIAN PRODUCER, ACTOR & DIRECTOR, GIVE 30 AMBASSADOR – WITH REFLECTIONS BY: Ziyaad Mia – Founder of Give 30
COST: $75/regular ticket $50/student ticket While tickets last. Your ticket represents your contribution to your selected food bank.
Should the ticket cost be a barrier to your participation, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
No one will be turned away from #GIVTAR.
