On Saturday 15 November Muslim Aid Australia and Read Little Muslim co-hosted a unique event, Just Kidding Charity Playdate, for the children in our communities. With an impressive turnout of approximately 300 people, and stalls to cater for all ages including the adults, this event will be the first of many.
Shajarah Islamic Education provided a delicious sausage sizzle, and Crescents of Brisbane held their signature CresCafe with delightful cupcakes and coffee for all.
Zed&Q introduced the Brisbane community to a new sense of individual style and creativity with their wide range of handmade items including beautiful and modern Islamic art pieces. Read Little Muslims showcased their array of educational and entertaining Islamic books and activities, as well as working in partnership with Modest Munchies to create and facilitate fun arts and craft activities for the children on the day. Face painting, henna, mini prayer mats, space craft, bookmarks and personalised donation tins were all the rage.
In addition to the wonderful supporters and stalls, what made this event extra special for the children was the Children’s Story Time where a selection of books were read to a captive audience throughout the day.
Thank you to Dr Naadir Gutta, Faaiza Osman from Modest Munchies, Fathima Adat and Dr. Mustafa Ally for engaging and entertaining the kids!
All proceeds from the day will go to Muslim Aid Australia’s Winter Emergency Appeal in Syria, Palestine, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. If you would like more information on either of the hosts, please visit www.muslimaid.org.au
