Arbaeen 2019: Help Us Change the World!

Posted by \\\ \\\ Category: Good Going\\\ social justice islam arbaeen donation

Tomorrow, Saturday, October 19th, 2019 is known as Arbaeen—an observance by Shia Muslims (such as ourselves) of the 40th day following the death of Prophet Muhammad's grandson, Imam Hussain. Imam Hussain was killed by the tyrannical and corrupt leaders of his time, for standing up and speaking out against oppression, injustice, and inequality.

On this day every year, tens of millions of people gather in Iraq from all over the globe to stand against oppression—this event is the largest annual peaceful gathering of humans on the planet.

Every year on Arbaeen, we donate 100% of that day's revenue (not just profit/proceeds!) from online orders to causes which support those who are being affected by societal oppression.

The online revenue for Saturday, October 19th will be donated to Muslims for Progressive Values (MPV), a non-profit that is an advocate for human rights, social justice and inclusion in the US and around the world.

Join us by ordering from TheMadOptimist.com on Saturday (tomorrow!)—we'll send you your order as normal, and donate your payment to this great cause. :-)
