On Wednesday, August 25, I organized a screening at Global Kids of the new documentary "Abraham's Children," a series of intimate and frank profiles of ten Muslim-American teenagers in the New York area directed by my friend Nina Froriep. It was a very special night as around 30 people gathered to watch the film, share an interfaith "iftar" meal together, and discuss the film with the director and one of the stars of the film Imran Chaudhri.
I'm so thankful to Nina for allowing us to show her film as a fundraiser for Global Kids. The funds raised will go far towards helping our teens learn about the world around them, connect with people across cultures and serve their communities. (If you weren't able to attend but would like to support Global Kids, see our website.)
I also have to give a shoutout to the wonderul folks at Chandhi Restaurant, Kalustyan's Market, and Haandi Restaurant for donating all of the delicious food that was served during the iftar meal. Your generosity showed me the true spirit of Ramadan.
More pictures from the evening are on the Flickr set. You can see trailer for the film here and get more information on how you can host a screening of the film or get a copy for yourself at the official website.
