When the pandemic struck, the Parhami family jumped into action. They saw a need for firesides or talks on topics related to the teachings of the Baha’i Faith that anyone could attend on Zoom.

4 Ways You Can Help Support Baha’i Blog

We just celebrated Baha’i Blog’s 10th birthday, and it’s been an amazing decade of creating Baha’i-inspired content! Everything that we’ve been able to produce and share online has been thanks to the hard work of the Baha’i Blog team and the help of volunteers and financial contributors.

Creating a variety of content and ensuring that it is of a high standard is no easy task, and this requires resources and material means: videos, audio recordings, interviews and articles all require time, talent, and/or money. As an individual initiative, we are so incredibly grateful to everyone who contributes to Baha’i Blog – be it by subscribing to our YouTube channel or sharing one of our posts on Facebook, hosting or feeding musicians when they’re recording a Studio Session or singing those very songs, writing articles, sending us an email when a typo or error is spotted, or making financial contributions from the heart. We couldn’t do what we do without your help, and we strive to make the most of every contribution received.

We could ALWAYS use more assistance to keep Baha’i Blog going, and to continue exploring other potential projects too! We often get asked how Baha’i Blog can be supported so we thought, in honor of our 10th year online, we’d share four ways you can help: Continue reading

239days.com is a website that chronicles and brings to life the 239 days Abdu’l-Baha traveled across North America.
