This article describes some of the Eid celebrations that take place around the Washington, DC, area. Islamic Relief USA is cited: “A classic barometer of the Ramadan economy is charity, and Muslim aid organizations sometimes get 50 percent or more than the usual amount of donations during the month. Islamic Relief, the country’s largest Muslim charity, said it has received $13 million in commitments toward its annual Ramadan goal of $20 million. Giving has been up despite the economic downturn in the past couple of years, an Islamic Relief official said, mostly because of targeted campaigns around the East African famine this year and the floods last summer in Pakistan.”
