Aleena, the 5-month-old daughter of our co-founders Adnan and Nadia Mahmud, is living up to her “Youngest Philanthropist” moniker: She is already one of our Jolkona Champions, raising money for our Standing With the Philippines holiday campaign to help Peace Winds America bring relief to thousands of survivors struggling to recover from Typhoon Haiyan. The campaign, which we kicked off on #GivingTuesday Dec. 3, has raised more than $3,000 so far, through individual donations at the suggested $30, $60 and $200 levels, corporate matching funds, and contributions made as holiday gifts for friends and family.
Who Are Jolkona’s Champions?
Jolkona’s Champions lead fundraising campaigns for Give Direct or featured projects they are passionate about. Becoming a champion is easy, and is a good way to celebrate a birthday or special event, honor someone important to you, or see what kind of impact you and your community can have. Our four champions who are Standing with the Philippines have helped us raise 70 percent of our fundraising goal!
What Is Aleena’s Goal?
Help Aleena in her efforts to raise money to support victims of Typhoon Haiyan! For every $30, we can help another Filipino family recover from this catastrophic natural disaster. Donate here to join Aleena in Standing with the Philippines!
