We need your help this #GivingTuesday to get some new “WHEELS” for Dharma!
As Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche says, “Pure happiness comes from the experience of Dharma, and the development of pure Dharma depends upon the development of Dharma Centers… Who shall have made it possible for them to receive such benefits? It will be us. Therefore we are the great benefactors of future generations. Our activities are exactly the same as the Bodhisattva’s way of life because we are benefactors of all living beings.”
Like a pebble in a still lake, the ripples of your gift will have a far-reaching effect and will bring enormous benefit to many people. Please consider making as generous a gift as you can. Your tax-deductible donation will make a world of difference to others.
First there was Black Friday. Then there was Cyber Monday. Now, there is #GivingTuesday!
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday, however, is special in that it kicks off the charitable season and gives people from around the world the opportunity to support organizations that are working to make a positive impact in their corner of the world.
As a volunteer-run, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, we at Kadampa Meditation Center Boston are inspired to be Ambassadors of Giving Tuesday because our entire purpose as a meditation center is to show us how to create peace in the world by creating peace in our own hearts through training in meditation. This gives meaning to our lives and gives us hope that we can bring peace and happiness to our busy, modern cities by being connected to a supportive community.
