Year end appeals in Shambhala
A key aspect of the Dana Group's mission statement is promoting coordinated fund-raising throughout Shambhala. In that vein we have compiled all year end appeals for 2010 below. Please consider this a year end "one stop giving" location. Here you can peruse the various letters and sites, and link directly to the Shambhala entities with whom you feel a personal connection.

We can afford to open ourselves and join the rest of the world with a sense of tremendous generosity, tremendous goodness, and tremendous richness. The more we give, the more we gain - although what we gain should not particularly be our reason for giving. Rather, the more we give, the more we are inspired to give constantly. And the gaining process happens naturally, automatically. -Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
