Editorial Reviews

"Remarkable and encouraging."

— Light of Consciousness magazine

"Fundraising Bilaal's way is a creative and organized endeavour that will enable groups to promote team building and school spirit, all while making a positive difference to the lives of others. This book would be a valuable resource in any school library. Recommended."

— The Bookmark (BCTLA)

"This young Canadian is supremely committed to causes of world hunger and environment and to achieving all that he can be."

— Resource Links

"[Bilaal] is humble, smart, hardworking, respectful and an example both to adults and children alike... although the book focuses on guiding youth in their fundraising efforts, adults could also learn much."

— CM Magazine

"Clearly, Rajan is an exceptional teen and has much to offer the world."

— School Library Journal

"Part personal odyssey and part motivational guide,...this book's strength is its realistic approach to charitable work."


"Fundraising can be fun!? Any doubts young people might have about starting small and thinking big are set aside in this book by UNICEF Canada Child representative...The book reads as a motivational testament, with enough how-to help students embarking on service projects of their own. It could be useful in upper elementary, middle and high school business and social service units."

— Puget Sound Council for Reviewing Children's Media

"With the ideas and advice [Bilaal] gives, almost any child could have similar achievements for a worthwhile cause - as long as it is one the child truly cares about."

— Hi-Rise
