Assalamu Alaykum Wara7matullah,
There were two community events held yesterday: the Building Blocks Family Zoo Day event (Como Zoo :: 12pm-5pm) and the Muslim Youth Convention (Minneapolis Convention Center :: 10am-10pm). Alhamdulillah, we had an amazing turnout for both events!
At the BB Zoo Day, we were able to get 30-40 people signed up and had some good conversations with some of the people who came to the AlMaghrib booth. With it being outdoors and sunny, it was hard to get the true benefit of the audio/visual element, but Alhamdulillah our brothers and sisters at the booth today did an excellent job of working through the elements and reaching out to the people to spread the word for our project.
At the Youth Convention, we had an excellent response as well, Alhamdulillah. We looked over the signups after the event and counted 135 people–Masha’Allah, an outstanding number! May Allah (swt) reward all of the workers and volunteers at both Almaghrib booths Insha’Allah.
To view the collection of photos taken during these two events, please check out our Gallery Page. If you have any suggestions for our future booths, you’re more than welcome to leave a comment, and Insha’Allah we will take your ideas into consideration.
Jazaakum Allah, Wassalamu Alaykum Wara7matullah.
