and still have a waiting list of centers waiting to receive more.

You can sign up to make sets of ten cards for various dates and places. As for what goes on the cards, you can be as creative as you'd like and use whatever you have: glitter, paint, colored pencils, stickers, sequins, scrapbook paper, etc) We are currently focusing on making cards for seniors, so on the cards there should be uplifting, encouraging, and cheerful messages to put a smile on their faces!

Zakat Foundation is dedicated to alleviating the immediate needs of the poorest communities by providing food, shelter, health care and by delivering relief in emergencies. Zakat Foundation also provides education and training in order to equip people with the skills to help themselves.


Zakat Foundation of America is a non-governmental, non-political, non-profit international relief and development organization registered under the laws of the State of Illinois. As a humanitarian relief and development organization, Zakat Foundation endeavors to adhere to the core humanitarian principles set forth in the code of conduct for the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and NGOs in Disaster Relief, particularly its provisions on humanity, impartiality, independence and neutrality.
