Watching the protests in the Middle East, Muslim Americans here at home are hoping to counter acts of violence, with acts of kindness.

In partnership with the American Red Cross, they organized a nationwide blood drive with nearly 400 donation sites across the country.

They want to promote a message of peace.

“We condemn this kind of violence today as we condemned the violence of 9/11 11 years ago,” says Naseem Mahdi.

Inside the Cannon House Office Building, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA encouraged lawmakers and staff members to participate in this blood drive for the Red Cross.

This is the second annual Muslims for Life event, timed to coincide with the week of 9/11.

Last year, they collected nearly 12,000 pints of donated blood.

Organizers say they hope to save lives in honor of the lives lost on 9/11.
