Spreading a little Christmas cheer….
December was filled with lots of laughter! We headed to Al Noor Center with Mina’s university dance students to perform as part of their annual holiday party. The kids, staff, performers and Dubomedy crew all had a blast!
Later in the month we headed to Golisano Children’s Hospital in New York to put on a special show as well as hand out Christmas presents to the patients. Special thanks to the Rochester Knights of Columbus for donating monies to provide us with toys to share!
Last Thursday we headed over to visit one of our FAVORITE places in Dubai, Mawaheb from Beautiful People, to help them celebrate their 3rd anniversary. The space was filled with incredibly talented, kind and loving artists and volunteers. We were honored to have been able to share their special day with them. They inspire us greatly with their huge SMILES AND HUGS. InshAllah MANY more years to come!
