Thank you to all for the ripples of generosity on #GivingTuesday 2017
The numbers are in, and we’re thrilled to report that this year’s #GivingTuesday2017 donations are up 31% over Giving Tuesday 2016. Your kindness, your prayers, and your commitment resulted in gifts totaling $19,688.03.
The $2 million matching funds pledged by the Gates Foundation was quickly met by an outpouring of gifts from Facebook contributors to a wide variety of global causes, and KPC was delighted to be a recipient. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation matched $2,014, bringing the total to a glorious $21,682.03 offered to KPC.
Every dollar, every donor, every like, every share, every prayer makes a difference. All gifts go to support KPC sacred space, programs, and activities that transform minds and lives. All gifts, no matter the size, will allow others to benefit from the light KPC offers to the world. All gifts join with others to create a world with more Kindness, more Peace, more Compassion.
We at KPC are especially grateful to the nineteen of you who created individual fundraisers to reach out to your own Facebook friends and family and shared personal stories of what KPC means to you, and how its methods and mission have transformed your lives.
Global gifts poured in from all over the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. If you responded to such a plea, we thank you, and hope you will continue to be inspired by and supported by KPC’s mission and vision for a kinder, more compassionate world, If you were overwhelmed by too many requests, we apologize, and thank you for sticking with us through the learning curve.
May the ripples of generosity continue to spread forth and be returned to you again and again.
By this merit, may Kunzang Palyul Choling thrive until the end of time and bring boundless blessings to all beings.
