Mark your calendars, this is an event you do not want to miss! THAAKAT will be hosting a formal charity dinner on October 4 in Woodbridge, NJ. This dinner will benefit their #lethedreambe campaign to expand the school they built at the impoverished village site of Kachra Kundi, Karachi, Pakistan. In addition to the premiere of “Pursuit of Dreams,” the night will include a live auction, and performances by comedian Saad Haroon and musician Denis Lipari. More info on the event, as well as a link to purchase tickets, is available here.
The Thaakat Foundation was founded a few years in Chicago. They began working on local projects and eventually expanded to projects overseas. The first chapter of the organization was started at Rutgers University in 2008 and has now spread to 12 more university campuses.
Recently, the foundation created a viral campaign titled #lethedreambe’ where thousands of social media users changed their profile pictures to a simple black background with #lethedreambe’ in white text. This campaign culminated to the release of a video informing people of the project. Check out the video, below.

This is sure to be a great night for a great cause. Make sure you get your tickets ASAP!
