The Golden Runway
Our supporters asked Nour for a fun filled Eid event, and we did not disappoint. Nour presented our first ever Eid Fusion event, a gathering of people from different cultures who had come together to enjoy luscious mocktails and have their hand adorned with Henna and much more. Many had not heard about Nour, so we were very excited to talk to them and explain just what it is that we do. And if you still are not sure, then please make sure you check out our website and Facebook page, because it really is a worthwhile cause, supported by many notable individuals including our patron Yvonne Ridley. Hosting these fun events helps to introduce the platform for Nour, but we are working very hard to host our first DV related seminar, where all the myths and misconceptions can be brought for discussion. If there is an event you would like to see from Nour, simply reply to this email with your suggestion.
Our next event is also creating excitement amongst the fashion curious amongst us, The Golden Runway, featuring Miss Middle East 2010-2011 as our special guest! This will be an event where we showcase up and coming new designers who will model their designs on our runway, and you will have the opportunity to like and buy! So be sure to look glamorous and beautiful. You can get your tickets online from here now!
We are also pleased to announce a new sponsor at Nour, Artistic Alauddin, who generously donates her beautiful artworks at many of our events. We are immensely thankful and we recommend you do check out her work!
Nour would also like to extend its sincere gratitude to Ramadan TV who played our advert during the month of Ramadan. May Allah Subhana wa ta’ala reward each and every person who made this possible in abundance.
We are also calling out to all creative individuals for an unmissable, unbelievable and extremely incredible art competition, The Blank Slate open to everyone far and wide. It can be any type of artwork but reflecting our theme, 'STRENGTH, SUPPORT & SOLACE'. By doing so, you will be able to promote your artwork, and gain the opportunity of having your work exhibited, auctioned and wholly appreciated. Send in pictures of your entries to [email protected] Get your creative juices flowing!
Lastly, amongst all the glamour and fun, we must remember why Nour was formed, and it is to help those who are suffering from DV. We leave you with a heart wrenching survivor story, which a very courageous sister has shared with us. Not everyone has a survivor story to tell, some are barely surviving, and we request you keep them all in your sincere prayers.
Wa 'alaikum Assalaam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh,
Peace and love
