Dear fellow hunger fighters,
Zindagi Trust would like to thank everyone who came and helped out at the event in the spirit of fellowship and good will. As we walked around the room, we were struck by the happiness and joy on the volunteer's faces. We all had a great time through laughter among all the friendly people in the room. By coming together for the food pack, we were reminded once again that being an American transcends race, skin color, or religion. Regardless of the actual number of meals we packed, the event was a complete success.
Thank you all for your hard work and dedication to make this event a success. We saw people reach out to one another and make new friendships. We saw people reaching across imaginary barriers that we impose on ourselves to expound a deeper understanding of our respective beliefs and work together to dispel myths and prejudices among us. This is the American dream and we can't remain a cohesive country without it.
It seems almost superfluous to add that we packed 570,000 meals for hungry kids in Pakistan. We filled two containers with the meals on Monday, November 22nd, and we expect the containers to arrive in Pakistan on January 7th, 2011.
Once more, a heartfelt "Thank You" to everyone who worked with Zindagi Trust to put on this amazing event. We are grateful and humbled by everyone's hard work and dedication.
Parvin and Ramzan Dhanji
