This year Almadina Language Charter Academy raised $2500.00 for its annual Ahmed Abbas fundraiser. In memory of Ahmed, donations collected from our community are given to the Alberta Children’s Hospital. On December 9, 2019 during the Ahmed Abbas assembly, our school was privileged to continue the journey of Ahmed’s fundraiser with the Abbas family. A heartwarming speech was shared by Ahmed’s brother describing how Ahmed touched many lives and was a true hero. We were lucky enough to have a special guest from the Alberta Children’s Hospital, Stephanie, who shared with the school how donations go towards helping sick children at the hospital.

Thank you to our school’s Special Events Committee for organizing this amazing event! The students who raised the most donations were given the opportunity to toss some pies at our staff. Congratulations to Ms. Tanasiecuk’s Grade 2 class for raising the most money. The students, families, and staff of Almadina did a great job showing their empathy and acceptance this year and made a great difference in the Ahmed Abbas fundraiser this year.
