The Blessed Ramadan project received coverage from major and community newspapers, television and cable shows, and blog posts. The project was featured on tpt's "Almanac" and even covered by Voice of America Indonesia.
And our Muslim neighbors noticed. We received numerous emails from Muslims in Minnesota and beyond, hearing stories about notes received, encouraging words left by signs, and flowers delivered as a thank you.
We also received thank yous on social media, such as these messages:
These signs are up all over the city, many in front of Christian churches, like this one in my neighborhood that has a large Somali population. Have I mentioned how much I love this place?
I was walking around by myself in my future neighborhood in South Minneapolis and I was so struck by this sign in front of a church that I blurted out “There! That’s what a church should look like.” I’m so thankful for these signs and many others that I have seen in the city I love so much.
We even received this on our Facebook page:
From Egypt, thank you.
Thank you again for your continuing support of our joint mission to manifest our unity and build the common good, whether it was by displaying signs, distributing signs, donating to the project, or simply spreading the word. We look forward to continuing this project in the next year, and the years beyond.
