The #Eid_Bus,” wrote another user, who expressed delight over the attempt to celebrate the Muslim feast in a different way.

Al-Fakeer said the cost of the initiative did not exceed $1,000.

He said the positive feedback they’ve received will encourage them to repeat the event next Eid.

We are also considering to encourage the participation of Saudi women next time, he said.

“Simple things can bring happiness to others. The Eid Bus initiative was just one way to do so. All people have great ideas, but to make it a reality, you just need to take the decision and act on it,” al-Fakeer added.
