This project has not been successfully funded. Sorry!

Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

Short Summary

My name is Ali Jameel, 28 years old, born and raised in Iraq--Erbil, Kurdistan.  On April 14, 2014, I decided to grow a beard.  The beard is a part of my life now: I made some friends, got lots of good compliments, free stuff, gifts, kisses,…(so many other things).

I also have critics: "You look like ISIS; loser; … etc." And my family hates the beard, especially my mum; she always asks me to shave it off. At my work place I have even been offered money to shave the beard. 

Well, I thought, if I am going to shave the beard, I should do it for a good cause. I don’t want to shave it over a “ragbi bet” –-someone I know who lost a bet and shaved his beard! I want to do it for something that would make everyone happy.

What We Need & What You Get

Projector  $ 170.00

DVD Player  $  50.00
Speakers  $ 100.00
DVDs  $  50.00
Cables  $  30.00

The Impact
As instinctive and resilient as children can be, I am so confident that they are creatively entertaining themselves in their new, makeshift environments.  And to add to their childhood memories at such a crucial time, I would love to provide a projector, DVD player, DVDs, and other equipment. Together, we can pool money and make this project happen. In the end, I will completely shave off my beard :). 
I have been volunteering for a local NGO in my home country to show cartoons for an hour once a week. But, I never thought 1 day was enough for kids to watch cartoon. 

Other Ways You Can Help
If you cant contribute money, I am sure that you have that old DVD sitting on your book shelf. You can contribute that. A projector that you are not using anymore. A white screen you said you will buy it but later it was a mistake, not its time to fix that mistake. Anything that you think will this project happen is a good contribution.
