Peace be with you السلام عليكم
Objective: to raise $46,000 by the end of December to keep MWIRD operating and serving 10,000 hungry people a MONTH! (inshaAllah)
Summary: MWIRD has lost 70% of its funding and has had an increase of 50% in demand. In order to stay open they must collect $50,000 by the end of December or go in to dissolution. They serve more than 10,000 people a MONTH and their operating cost is about $15,000 a month. As of 12/16/2011 @ 1:pm they have $4,290 in hand and need $45,710.
THIS IS HOW YOU CAN HELP

Or do you know 100 people who could give $500 each;
