Twelve Days of FBA - Day 2: Introductory Buddhism

Amalavajra reports from the fundraiser's desk

By Munisha on Wed, 29 Jul, 2015 - 13:47

Written a few thousand pounds back (when we were 50% there), this is a great Triratna News report on the fundraising for Bhante’s birthday present. Amalavajra, Triratna’s fundraiser in Europe, explains his enthusiasm.

PS Today we’re 58% there! We still need another £41,000 and we’ve got just 28 days to raise it. That’s £1464 per day.

But that shouldn’t be hard. Yesterday we raised more than that!

Can you help Karuna? Are you looking for a reliable tenant for your property in London?

By Andrea@Karuna on Wed, 12 Feb, 2014 - 12:42We are looking for a 4-5 bedroom house for rent in London to house Karuna door-to-door appeals from March to July 2014.
