My story

[p][b]What is Ramadan[/b][/p][p]Ramadan is the holy month of fasting for 30 days. During this time Muslims will not eat or drink from sunrise until sunset and abstain from sexual activity and using any form of bad language. It's a time of spiritual reflection, self improvement, heightened devotion of worship, reading the Holy book (Quran), increase acts of giving to charity and doing good deeds. It's also a time to think of those people in underprivileged countries who have no access to food or clean drinking water.[/p][p]There are exceptions for those who are sick or have health conditions that prevent them from fasting, and women who are pregnant or menstruating are not permitted to fast.[/p][p]Before sunrise we will have breakfast (known as Sehri and another as Iftari) after sunset. At the end of the fast when the sun has gone down usually family and friends get together for iftari to break their fast.[/p][p][b]Here are a few health benefits of fasting[/b][/p][p]Purifies and cleanses your body[/p][p]Helps prevent health problems [/p][p]Improves mental health and wellbeing [/p][p]Helps to overcome bad habits [/p][p][br][/p][p][b]My Challenge[/b][/p][p]In the spirit of Ramadan and unity, I am challenging any non-Muslims who would be interested in joining me to try fasting for one day or more to raise money for Deaf Unity. This is an opportunity to experience fasting but also to learn 5 new BSL signs by the end of your day. Please follow my dedicated hashtag [b]#DeafUnityRamadanChallenge[/b].[/p][p]Deaf Unity is a registered charity working to build unity and potential in the Deaf Community. It will be great to have a number of people participate to make the challenge more exciting and raise awareness about BSL as a language and the need for unity across all our communities! [/p][p] Please email me at [b]Zubee@accessmyevents.co.uk[/b] with the words ‘challenge accepted’ or simply donate. I will then email you with details about the challenge along with a video clip with our 5 signs to learn. The more people that participate, the more money we can raise. If you feel up to it, it would also be great for you to share your experience through a short video or by writing a short piece that I can share on my social media channels and website.[/p][p][b]Any amount received will be greatly appreciated! Thank you :)[/b][/p][p]Donating through Virgin Giving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with Virgin Giving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.[/p]
