Thanks to Digressing and Africano:

A makeshift memorial of flowers, candles, artwork, extracts of poetry or scripture, and any other forms of expressing sadness at the human toll of the Sharm el-Sheikh bombings will take place starting on Thursday, July 28 at noon at the Sawi Cultural Centre garden. The gesture is silent, non-political, and continuous. Those who can't be there at noon are free to go anytime after.

Thanks to Alaa:

An invitation to all Egyptians of all political persuasions to gather for a one-hour silent vigil on Saturday, July 30 at 6 pm in front of Cairo University's martyrs' memorial. Children and their artwork are welcome, as are candles, flowers, and all other expressions of sadness. Don't forget to wear black to mourn the victims and stand by their families and loved ones.
