The sheepest Qurbani available!
Guzzy Bear was going to do his own Qurbani this year, then he found out that Qurbani is only £29 with Penny Appeal.
Just watch the look on his face as he realises!
Give your Qurbani with Penny Appeal and the fresh meat will be delivered direct to orphans, widows and the elderly, so they can enjoy a nutritious meal to celebrate Eid al-Adha.
Qurbani with Penny Appeal – it’s affordable and rewardable!

Water, water everywhere...
But for 2.3 billion people there’s not a drop to drink.
That’s why we’re building wells in 13 developing countries worldwide, giving people reliable access to clean water.
This water means they can wash, cook and clean without worrying about killer diseases such as diarrhoea. It means they can care for their crops and animals, giving them a chance to build a sustainable livelihood. And it means they live stronger, healthier and happier lives, with a real opportunity to get out of poverty.
This World Water Week (23 to 28 August), you can build a well to give life-saving clean water for years to come.
It costs from £300 to build a well through Thirst Relief – that’s just 82p a day, around the same price as a bottle of mineral water!
Start building your well now by calling 03000 11 11 11. You can even dedicate it in your name or that of a loved one.

They dared to dive, to save lives!
Over 80 of our daring #TeamOrange volunteers took on a mammoth challenge at the weekend – to jump out of a plane at 13,000ft!
The skydivers showed bravery, dedication to helping others and enthusiasm, with a whopping £40,000 raised to build a new medical room in Gaza.
“It was an incredible weekend in so many ways; for the number of people who took part over the two skydive days, the money we raised and the lives we will go on to save as a result,” said Khalil Benkhalil, Fundraising & Challenges Coordinator.
If you’re an adrenaline seeker who wants to raise money to save lives then join #TeamOrange now and we’ll keep you updated on our next challenges. You could also volunteer at our upcoming events or host your own fundraisers in your community.

A month of small change = a really BIG difference
We had LOADS of special events taking place during Ramadan and it was great to meet Penny Appeal supporters and #TeamOrange volunteers up and down the country.
Amir Khan joined us for iftaar in Bradford, and #TeamOrange organised their own four-city iftaar tour with nasheed artists Saif Adam and Ahmad Hussain.
We welcomed Qari Dr Ahmed Nuaina, official state reciter for Egypt, and Shaykh Muhammad Abdul Jabbar for two special tours visiting mosques around the UK.
Plus there has been a lot of #TeamOrange activity, with volunteers holding street collections, car washes, cake sales and much more.
Thank you to everyone who has been a part of our events this Ramadan, and don’t forget – you can donate at any time to gain rewards simply by calling 03000 11 11 11.
