Today, 9 September 2013 - Hi.......it's that time of the year when we do a donation to help students in Nepal with their educational supplies like books, pencils, new uniforms, new shoes etc. You would remember that video clip that made me cry.
Message from Stephen Ching, my dharma friend :It's the fifth year that I am collecting this Educational Supply Fund for our precious Guru, Khen Rinpoche Geshe Thubten Chonyi.
The good news from Khen Rinpoche this afternoon was that the fund now sponsored more than 200 students from 4 differents schools compared to the initial number of 50 students (i.e. growth of400%)!!!
It is YOU who made this possible. It is YOU who practiced generosity who allowed the students to attend school with proper uniforms and shoes with other basic necessities e.g. stationary.
Khen Rinpoche mentioned that there will be another 50-60 more students this year.
Between now till 01 Oct 2013, I will be accepting sponsorship for this annual fund raising event for the Nepalese Kids.
This fund is meant for the deprived kids in Nepal, mainly to provide for their school uniforms, shoes, stationary and the like.
Khen Rinpoche estimated that about S$100 is needed to sponsor one year supplies for one kid.
Why is this an annual event? Our Guru recognised that kids grow and the sizes (uniform and/or shoes) kept changing. Stationary and the likes are all to be replaced year-after-year. Therefore, it's very important to keep the supplies consistent.
For any kind and generous sponsors, you may message me for sponsorship details (including how many kids you would like to sponsor).
Whether you believe in karma or not, whichever faith/religion one belongs, please help to spread the words and let the love proliferate... love and kindness do not have boundaries, agree?
You really can make a difference in their lives...
On behalf of the kids in Nepal and Khen Rinpoche, many thanks in advance.
FSQ Note: You may also reach him via his mobile at +65-9011-0191
We usually write a cheque out to his name and then he would send it to Khen Rinpoche, our precious Guru who would bring it to Nepal for this Educational Supply Fund. Do donate generously to this project. Thanks !
