“K.E.Y.S For the less Fortunate”
Helping Those In Need
Some of us get caught up in our own lives and into our own luxuries that we really forget about those who do not have the same. We drive our cars, go to work, come home and sleep in our beds, eat dinner etc.. At any given moment we could lose...
Another aspect of our organization is to help the elderly who are stricken to lives in a nursing home or any place of care.
Many children are born and sadly they are given up for adoption or completely abandoned by parents for various reasons. It’s sad because babies are completely innocent without sin and they are not aware of what’s right or wrong....
To sponsor various on-going non-profit events to help raise awareness of the needs that exist within our communities and to inspire and motivate others to act by contributing their time, initiative and efforts.
We hope that others will become compelled to help those that are less fortunate not only with their financial resources, but also their time spent in community activities with action. Our organization will network with local charities, homeless shelters, battered women shelters, orphanages, nursing homes and other institutions in order to spread this beautiful mission.
With this consistent cycle of giving and helping, not only with finances, but also with physical acts of community service; those in need will get their share of the benefit from K.E.Y.S for the less Fortunate, God Willing.
K.E.Y.S For The Less Fortunate is an non-profit organization that will only accept voluntary donations, but more importantly your precious time and effort in the on-going service of the community. As Muslims we believe in using our financial resources, time and effort for the sake of pleasing God. We believe whole heartedly that if our time, work and effort is done for the sake of God, He will manifest success in our lives; because the sacrifice of that time, work and effort is all for Him.
The Beautiful Qur’an says in its Infinite Wisdom;
“They fed the needy, the orphans and the captives for the love of God alone, saying, “We’re feeding you only for the sake of God, and we expect nothing in return from you, neither compensation nor thanks.”
May God reward me and all the Believers who participate in this cause, and may He bring all seekers of Him to His Straight Path of guidance. Ameen
K.E.Y.S For the less Fortunate is a 501 (c) 3 Non-profit project of United Charitable Programs that’s focused on bringing awareness to the importance of helping those in need. Each individual has immediate needs that he or she must fulfill for themselves and their family. However, our roles must extend beyond our own needs to societal needs. A healthy community is a continuum that begins at the individual level and then extends to the family unit, and further extends to the community and society that we are a part of at large. There are others within our communities that require assistance, and those that are in need must not be forgotten. By addressing the needs of those that are less fortunate, we in-turn begin to build more prosperous communities. The ripple effect of such investments can not be emphasized. Such investments lead to less crime, less individuals relying on social welfare programs, more prosperous school systems, less deterioration of communities and much more.
If we wish for better, healthier, safer and thriving communities for ourselves, children and offspring, we must strive to meet the needs of the community at large. To uplift one, is to uplift the whole. Such responsibilities extend to us all.
No matter what faith we have, a key component in all is the encouraging of giving charity, helping those in need and offering assistance to our “neighbors.”
Our faiths teach us the value of thinking beyond ourselves, and acting for the sake of God. We all are God’s created beings and everything that we have of benefit originates from Him. What better way to show gratitude then to use such sources and to give back in service to the community.
We are all one huge family with a shared lineage that began with Adam and Eve. Even though we may all have different beliefs, belonging to different faiths and denominations, we as a human family must come together to help those who need assistance.
We better our persons through bettering others, which advances society, and those who are helped often seek to repay such efforts by striving to help themselves once they are able.
In our faith of Islam, our beloved Prophet Muhammad, may peace be upon him, said. “Take advantage of five matters before five other matters; Your youth, before you become old; your health, before you fall sick; your richness, before you become poor; your free time before you become busy; and your life, before your death.”
With that being said, K.E.Y.S For The Less Fortunate is my humble effort to make positive use of my life while alive for the sake of God.
We invite you to join us in this mission and to be a part of this vision.
