Presently, a campaign to raise funds for "Ucif's Wedding" is meeting its goal of $2,000. From the Facebook page:
Ouchaoua "Ucif" Youcef, a good friend to many of us on Facebook, lives in Algeria. He manages to get by on...well, not much. The wonderful news is that, in his late 30s, he is about to get married for the first time. The happy date is Thursday, March 6th, 2014.
Ucif needs a dowry, sheep, a fridge, money to paint a few rooms, a stove...it adds up to about $2,000. He didn't ask me to do this, but...ten or twenty dollars from a lot of people will add up to a lot of help.
Let's show him we care by Paying it Forward to Ucif and getting his married life off to a great start.
