He encourages recipients: “Please send your Zakah, Sadaqah, Lillah, Zakatul-fitr and other donations today.”The message is brief and plain, except for a graphic banner ad at the bottom promoting and linking to an online direct debit facility. Indeed, the message concludes with a promotion of online direct debits: “You can maximise your reward this Ramadan by signing up an online Direct Debit to give every month for those in need.” Advertisement Religious festivals are of course often a good opportunity with which to engage with some supporters and to make a fundraising request.
