THANK YOU TO ALL WHO GAVE!
Perhaps you made a small gift, or perhaps it was large. Perhaps you cheered KPC on via social media, or shared live videos, photos, or personal stories from the heart. Perhaps you prayed quietly, or gathered for the abundant Rigzin Dupa food offering ceremony. Perhaps you offered service, offered prayers at the Stupas, tended gardens, made sandwiches for the homeless, or cared for the birds of the Garuda Aviary. Whatever you did, however you participated, it matters. By any measure, #GivingTuesday2017 was a day for rejoicing in generosity.
On behalf of all beings, we thank you for participating in #GivingTuesday2017. Your efforts support Kindness, Peace, and Compassion.
Numbers are being tallied… over $11,500 so far, and climbing, with more still being reported. Watch for final numbers soon, including the dollar for dollar match from the Gates Foundation.
We dedicate the merit of the amazing generous activity with a prayer from Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo:
“By this effort, may all sentient beings be free of suffering. May their minds be filled with the nectar of virtue. In this way, may all causes resulting in suffering be extinguished, and only the light of compassion shine throughout all realms.”
