Tarek El MessidiWe are delighted to host Mr. Tarek El-Messidi as our Keynote Speaker that night.
In 2001, soon after the 9/11 tragedy, Tarek co-founded the Fast-a-thon: an interfaith event that raises money to feed the poor by asking non-Muslims to try fasting for a day with their Muslim peers in Ramadan. The Fast-a-thon's slogan is "Go Hungry for a Day so Someone Else Won't Have to." Within a few years, the Fast-a-thon went viral, spreading to 300 college campuses and 14 Google headquarters worldwide. It has raised over $2 million to feed the hungry worldwide.
In 2010, a few years after earning an MBA and beginning work as a manager at Procter & Gamble in Ohio, Tarek founded CelebrateMercy: a 501(c)(3) non-profit that teaches about the Prophet Muhammad's life and character through webinars, short films, events, and social media (see one of their trailer videos here). CelebrateMercy has reached millions of people and its Facebook page has grown to over 630,000 Likes.
