Boise, ID, September 21, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Boise basketball coach Jamaal Al-Din of Jamaal Al-Din's Hoops 227 is a 17-year devout Muslim with an extremely creative side. This time he's done it. Coach Jamaal will celebrate Ramadan, with 150 articles written on Boise based businesses and community citizens during the Ramadan 30 day celebration. He'll write 5 articles per day, totaling 150 articles during the Month of Ramadan. What a great way to keep community members informed on Boise.
"I feel like this is an exciting way to keep my readers informed as to the actual social climate that we have in the Boise community," says Jamaal.
Coach Jamaal's creative side will definitely show with such a journalistic, diary style writing comprised over a 30-day time frame. Topics and areas covered will include everything from real estate, insurance, sports, entrepreneurs, non-profits, public figures and even our finest dining hot spots.
"Well, i'm definitely not competing with local media outlets like nbc's ktvb channel 7, kivi channel 6, ktrv fox 12, and kbci channel 2, because of my individualistic view point and stance in every article. I'm confident that my opinion is valued by my readers and will keep them coming back to read articles. I look to continue these types of writings in the future, so stay tuned and informed," exclaimed Al-Din.
These types of articles, on what's good about Boise will be paramount for establishing parameters and guidelines for future Boise entrepreneurs.
"It's important for our community citizen to be informed as to who's volunteering and giving to good causes. recognition given to these types of cause will only add to the city of trees. So many times stories like Senator Larry Craig make headlines and overshadow news that gives to the credibility of our creative and diligent community. What I offer as far as my opinionated diary of informative writing on Boise during the next 30 days could definitely be construed as 'fruit from the tree,' " says Coach Jamaal.
