Volunteer Work

Special Request–Please help & Pass on to anyone who might be interested!

Starting in August is the Muslim month of Ramadan.  School hours will be significantly reduced to accommodate fasting during daylight hours.  Ramadan is a major Islamic holiday, and the tradition of fasting means different things to different people.  My students and the students of other Volunteers are intensely interested in U.S. Muslims or how non-Muslim U.S. citizens view their faith.  The interest is peaked by the looming Ramadan.  As a response to this, one of my fellow Volunteers is attempting to make a video compilation of U.S. citizen commentary on fasting, Ramadan, the Islamic faith, and faith in general.  The Volunteer has asked all serving in East Java to forward her original message (below) to solicit responses from people across the U.S.  Read the forwarded message, and if you feel like you can contribute, e-mail me your video.  I will make sure it gets to the Volunteer working on the final product.  The Volunteer is hoping to have the material by August 3rd.
Thanks, Jay
