Thanks Mokshini,

This video introduces FutureDharma Fund and Zoe Lim, a Mitra in Singapore whose life has been changed by online Dharma.

Showing it to people in your sangha will help them to feel part of a global movement for change, and would be an excellent prelude to asking them to give.

Do contact Liz or I (or your local FutureDharma Champion of course) for any more help.

Warm wishes,

Amalavajra
