Great inspirational story by Imam Zaid Shakir

As'Salaam Alaikum,
A few weeks ago I had the honor to be in the company of Sr. Dian Alyan of GiveLight Foundation.
After tragically losing 40 relatives in the deadly Asia tsunami of 2004, she gave up a highly successful career as an executive at Procter & Gamble and founded the GiveLight Foundation to create a home to and provide long term education for the orphans from this disaster.
Since that time, GiveLight has expanded to many other countries, such as Pakistan, Afghanistan, Haiti, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, etc., supporting and enhancing the lives of orphans.
"The tsunami of 2004 changed my life forever and I believe it was my destiny that Allah swt has written for me.  He designed my life for a better purpose and the path I had chosen turned from running global brands to running global homes for orphans" Dian Alyan
