An annual tradition worldwide - The Ramadan Cookie © project. 

     As-salam`alaykum eco-people!

So, alhamdulillah, life here in Britain has had its sun and cloud - I don't care what they say, fasting in the heat, keeping punctual with prayers and resisting licking the glass counter of every bakery store, is HARD - but patience kicks temptation's butt.

I am a traditionalist and love to keep my own traditions, one of which is a gingerbread man fundraiser I create every year, now called The Ramadan Cookie © Project.

The recipe to the gingerbread is easy to follow and I've written it up on my original 'muslimness' site + Zaufishan.co.uk - Making Gingerbread Men. But of course, the secret ingredient of eco Islam and sparkles is something only my eco-hands can knead in.

The Ramadan Cookie © Project is part fundraiser, part gift and a great way to send a little Muslim an edible `Eid present or to eat yourself.

The cookies come in packs of 2 - one gingerbread hijabi and one gingerbread man, they are about 4 inches in length; they cost you absolutely nothing and are 100% halal.

However, because you're not buying them from The Eco Muslim in the traditional sense, I am promoting my networking pages and fundraising with them for the current crises in East Africa, Pakistan, Japan and Haiti, with the blessing of God.

I have already made several dozen and am posting a batch this week insha'Allah, mostly friends, family.

If you'd like to order a pack this is what I need you to do:
1. Shameless promotion:
"Like" the nifty fan page on www.facebook.com/TheEcoMuslim and follow www.twitter.com/TheEcoMuslim to PAY WITH A TWEET.

2. Fundraising
- Donate £1/ £5/ £10 each day to Islamic Relief's Ramadan appeal until the end of Ramadan. Then keep going.
- Feed the fasting by texting "FEED44 £1" to 70070, a UK campaign by twitter.com/FamiliesRelief.
- Support the new non-profit organisation in New York that reads bedtime stories to children in hospital: http://iinspireinc.org.

3. Get in touch
Then, send me a message with the phrase "I support The Eco Muslim!" on either the www.facebook.com/TheEcoMuslim page or twitter.com/TheEcoMuslim and I'll post out a freshly baked Ramadan Cookie © to you.

Deadline: the cut-off date for sending Ramadan cookies is 25th August 2011 to get to you in time for `Eid-ul-fitr.

PLEASE DO share your donations or "tweets" with others to raise awareness of these Ramadan campaigns.

That's it. A few clicks and you save someone's life and get a couple of homebaked gingerbread goodness. And I make du`a God rewards you with much more for your kindness.

I look forward to hearing from you,
Zaufishan, the eco muslim and gingerbread queen
