ayesha-ziaWhat about life inspires you?

I have always wondered how the fireflies can sparkle the whole world at night? Those tiny creatures, by the grace of Allah, can bring so much life into darkness. What if we can make it possible to touch others lives by sharing our blessings with less fortunate to make this world a better place to live for others. This desire has always been burning in my heart until I discovered a true light, Give Light organization.

Why did you choose to volunteer with GiveLight Foundation?

I was totally intrigued by the idea of supporting and owning an orphanage around the globe without any borders. Being a mother and a professional helping children's communication needs every single day, this cause was a true match to my soul. Sister Dian's selfless love and passion to the orphanage around the globe has drawn me to be a part of this wonderful cause.

How do you help make a difference by doing what you do here?

I got involved with Give Light for the sole to soul campaign, which led to an idea of a very successful fundraiser event, “Tea Party for a Good Cause” at my house. Since then, I have been a member of leading team committee & sponsorship for several Give Light events such as Global Bistro, Give Light Gala, Dream of Africa & GL walkathon etc. I am excited and humbled to be a part of Give Light Foundation and looking forward to many exciting and rewarding series of joyful events that not only bring the joy of giving but to make a difference in thousands of young lives who will hold the reigns of our future soon.
