“Giving is good, dear sir!
Even when one has little, giving is good.
An offering given from what little one has
is worth a thousand times its value.”

The most tangible expression of our sense of human solidarity is the act of giving. Through giving, we break down the psychological barriers that separate us from others and affirm our fundamental unity. Through giving, we let the water of compassion flow through our own hearts and into the hearts of others. The practice of generosity ennobles and dignifies our character; at the same time, it helps those in need find a base of security that will support their efforts to provide for themselves and their families. Most importantly, giving demonstrates to others that they do not walk alone; that there are people far away, never seen by them, who care for them and share their suffering; that there are those who earnestly wish to help.
With such thoughts, we invite everyone who empathizes with our mission to contribute to our work by making a donation. A large number of small gifts can combine to create a mass of funds that can be fruitfully used to aid those in need. The Buddha said that to give food is to give the recipients life, health, beauty, happiness, and mental clarity. By giving these, the donor in turn acquires a store of merit, of wholesome karma, that will eventually ripen in these five benefits.
