Donating to a good cause.
« on: July 23, 2010, 10:21:23 am »
Hello everyone. Hope all is well. As you can see by the thread,

http://www.freesangha.com/forums/index.php?topic=1658.0

Jikan a fellow member is having some issues with getting his Sangha Zafu's etc.

If you could please just take 5 minutes of your time and just look over the information and if you feel it is in your best interests, maybe donate to a  good cause?

Thank you everyone.  :jinsyx:

I also sent a little something. I wish I could donate a zafu or two, but the postage costs from here for such bulky and heavy things would be quite horrifying. It's probably better to buy them from within the U.S. Good luck with everything, Jikan!

EDIT: Oh, and by the way, I just installed a package that encodes email addresses in the page code so that bots can't harvest the emails for spam lists.

I would like to thank everyone who donated.  Our small sangha is now furnished with all the basics we need to carry on into the future under our own steam, thanks to you all. 

On behalf of the Great River Ekayana Sangha, I offer you our deepest gratitude.
