Loyola University Islamic Appreciation Week - Walk a Mile in Her Hijab Event
Posted on June 21, 2015
We were so happy to help support Loyola University Muslim Student Association's Walk a Mile in Her Hijab Event for the second year in a row - the event was a great success! The event was part of their yearly Islamic Appreciation Week that took place this past March.
The Loyola MSA held 11 events during the week, but the Walk a Mile in her Hijab Event specifically attacked negative stereotypes many Muslim women face.
Women from all walks of life joined the event to experience what it was like to wear a hijab. Over 100 participants opened a little pink bag with a hijab inside and pledged to wear it for the entire day.
We donated well over 125 hijabs for the event and asked some of *you* to donate your pink hijabs as well for this amazing event!
Some of the beautiful attendee's in the Pink Peony Wrap, Sunset Burst Scarf and the Sunny Day Scarf!
Some of the organizer's of the event - a huge thank you to everyone who organized this very important event and may Allah (S) reward you all for all your efforts!
