OK I soooo forgot about this. Alhumdulillah I was reminded buy a TRUE friend from her iftar invitation.
So this is how the Hijabi Project works. We here in our area are collecting hijabs for less fortunate sisters and new shahadah's for EID. You can either #1: Start the same program in your area or #2 contribute to the collection here in the DC/MD area.
Please provide new and or clean unused/under used hijabs. Sister if you haven't worn it in a YEAR...it needs to go. This is the time to be a blessing to someone else...especially during the month of Ramadan.
You can or a group of you can donate hijabs, $$ to purchase hijabs or BOTH. Please email me at ummamirah(at)beautifulummah(dot)com for pick up locations in DC and or Maryland. Last year my friend iftar garnered 50 gently used hijabs for new shahadas and sister's at Muslimat Al Nisaa in Baltimore. We will be collecting till the LAST weekend of Ramadan so that we can get the items together for the EID...iA.
May Allah(swt) continue to bless you during this blessed month.

Salaams and Saluations Ladies,
Ramadan Mubarak to our Muslim subscribers. We pray that you are enjoying the Mercy of your LORD during the 1st 1/3rd of the month of Ramadan.
Soooooo hijabis think about style and fashion year round. From 'what to wear to the masjid for tarawirh?'; to 'What am I wearing for the Eid?'; to 'What am I wearing to my non muslim family member's wedding in two weeks?' (ok that's just ME). So there are staples that ALL hijabs MUST have.
Shout out to Hijabis Got SWAG vlogger Sobia for doing a video on hijabi 'swagger' essentials. I think the did a bang up job (Londonese) with these essentials. Visit her blog Reveiling Yourself or Hijabis got Swag on FB.
So what's in your 'swag bag'? Maybe I should do a SWAG post?? hmmm
