#BajuRayaProject is a mini, spontaneous project made possible by a bunch of Twitter users who share the same interest; using social media as a medium to do charity. Spearheaded by Aida Sue (@aidasue), editor of Wanista.com, this project was inspired by other similar projects that have collected used tudungs & telekungs for distribution to those in need. Everyone deserves to look their best in Baju Raya, but not everyone can afford to get a new set of clothing to celebrate this joyous time. By organizing the #BajuRayaProject Aida Sue and crew hope to share the happiness and bring a few smiles to the faces of those in need on Hari Raya.
If you want to do your part heres how:
Come this 7th July, Aida and her crew will be at Masjid Salahudin Abd Aziz Shah from 9:30am to 1pm collecting your used Baju Raya. For those outside KL who want to do their part you can post or deliver by hand your Baju Raya to a range of selected orphanages on the facebook page http://www.Facebook.com/bajurayaproject or on their website http://www.wanista.com. Please note that the #bajurayaproject will only accept clothes that are still in decent, wearable condition as well as brand new clothes to facilitate the sorting process.
Even if you don’t have Baju Raya that you can donate, please do help share this post or the video to increase awareness for this noble cause!
