Since the Pay it Forward campaign for Khaled was launched to mark his 500 days in detention, more and more people having been responding to our call to pay forward Khaled's kindness and generosity in his absence.
Most recently, The Cupcake Shariff, a small baking company in Toronto, joined the #PayitForward4KQ initiative and baked 500 cookies. They wrote "We have been following the #PayitForward4KQ campaign and were motivated to contribute something from our baking team. 23 cups of flour, 3 hours of baking and 4 awesome workers later, we have 500 mini chocolate chip cookies!"
I joined some of Khaled's friends to distribute these cookies and was so touched and grateful by the responses. I hear so many positive messages from strangers and it helps me to keep going and keep fighting for Khaled to come home.
