Donations flood in for Nepal

By Munisha on Sat, 2 May, 2015 - 17:05

It’s not too late to give. Make a Buddha Day donation!

While Nepal’s government reports today that almost none of the aid pledged by foreign governments has arrived yet, it’s good to hear from Green Tara Trust that your money is already there and working.

That means by ‘population’, Facebook is (sort of!) the world’s third largest country! And it’s a safe bet that soon enough more people will spend time on the mother of all social networks than live in any one nation… That’s quite a thought, and quite a new sort of connected global reality for...
