Day 190: Tibet Aid
I had a contest last week to raise awareness for my Escalera Expedition fundraiser, the support has been wonderful! Today, I am proud to announce the Tumblr winner is Mucalinda and I am donating to Tibet Aid in their honor, a humanitarian organization working to provide support to Tibetans in Tibet and in exile. Stay tuned for the Twitter winner!
Tibet Aid was established to provide humanitarian assistance to Tibetans in Tibet and in exile. Their vision is to see that the rich Tibetan religion and culture remains alive and flourishing. Donations to the charity go towards educating, clothing, and feeding Tibetan children in grades K-12, as well as supporting orphans and semi-orphans in the Tibetan Children’s Villages. Tibet Aid also works to educate and feed monks and nuns practicing Buddhism and provides them ways to learn the Tibetan written language so that they may study their religious texts. Every dime donated goes to Tibet to help the people flourish in their lives as refugees and creates opportunities for them to excel.
Amount Donated: $10
