RamadanREADy

About Us

A passion project to bring Ramadan into

public libraries

Founded in Southern California in 2017, RamadanREADy represents the aspirations of 3 Muslim moms who wanted to share the cultural diversity of their traditions with the community around them. They recognized the love and values of their sister holidays and hoped to share this same spirit of Ramadan and Eid with children in the United States.

As they pursued their vision, they found the community around them rallied to support their cause. Through an online CrowdFunding site, the moms’ fundraising efforts proved an overwhelming success. Since 2017, RamadanREADy has donated over 275 kits to local libraries and schools across the United States.

It is through this generous support from community patrons that the RamadanREADy Kit is proudly offered to you.
