Eid means festivity and feast. It marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting. Ramadan allows people to feel what it's like to go without; it encourages generosity, empathy for those less fortunate, and an appreciation of what one already has. Eid is celebrated with neighbours, friends and family coming together with lots of love and great food.
COMMUNE and Act for Peace have teamed up to celebrate Eid and the success of the recent 'Ration Challenge’, which just raised over $2 million to support Syrian refugees.
We welcomed the entire community to share this celebration with us.
