What delights us most about the holiday season is that people are more open to giving and sharing. While actively thinking about how to spread more joy CC Qatar partnered up with Doha Tweetups and St. Regis Doha. In the spirit of sharing and collaboration local creative community gathered for an Iftar in a magnificent Ramadan tent at St. Regis. Guests stepped outside the box of giving only to family and friends, and did something significant for the orphans in Qatar by donating the proceeds of the evening for the toy drive.
Guests, great friends, and the CC community members savored the dazzle of candles, each other’s company and enough delicious food to make any spirit bright. CC Qatar joined other Creative Commons affiliates in the region in celebrating boundary-breaking and bridge-building openness and sharing. Check out the many faces of the local community in this inspiring photo gallery that captures the spirit of the evening.
“Creative Commons Qatar is lucky to have a diverse community of technologists, graphic designers, entrepreneurs and photographers, all sharing a common interest in growing digital Arabic universe, and providing open access to content. Over the 2 years of our existence we have become a family, and it’s natural that we celebrate Iftar together,” said Julia Astashkina, CC Qatar Lead.
Keep the joy going during the holy month of Ramadan and beyond by giving someone else what had been given to you. Keep it moving forward!
