Moon’s Ramadan Synopsis

It’s Ramadan, the month of peace, and Moon loves traveling around the world to watch people helping people. In Egypt, India, Argentina, and United Arab Emirates; in Somalia, New Zealand, and Indonesia, and in Turkey, the United Kindom, and the United States, children and their families make gift baskets, bake sweets, and hang lanterns. They do good deeds in honor of those who have less. Guided by Moon’s changing light, they come together to honor Ramadan and build a world of love and kindness.
