Year Six Charity

I will once again be blogging for the Tibetan Nuns Project.

"The Tibetan Nuns Project was founded over two decades ago to provide education and humanitarian aid to refugee nuns from Tibet and Himalayan regions of India. The Project provides facilities and programs to educate, empower, and improve the status of ordained Tibetan women.

The Tibetan Nuns Project is dedicated to:
  • Improving standards of food, sanitation, medical care, and education in Tibetan nunneries
  • Working towards future self-sufficiency through educational and training opportunities
  • Training nuns to take leadership and service roles within their communities
  • Improving the level and status of ordained Buddhist women
  • Assisting recently arrived refugee nuns from Tibet
  • Continuing to establish further facilities for Buddhist nuns
  • Through our sponsorship program, funded by sponsors from around the world, we currently support over 700 Tibetan nuns living in north India. To learn more, click here.
The Tibetan Nuns Project was established under the auspices of the Tibetan Women's Association and the Department of Religion and Culture of H.H. the Dalai Lama."

blog-o-rama 2011

Due to the uncertainty, once again, to the holding of the official Blogathon, I have created an event for anyone wishing to blog for charity on a date originally setup by the creators of Blogothon. Even if I do not get anyone else to sign up for my event, I will be blogging.

2011 July 30
Starting at 09:00 EST
Blogging every half hour for 24 hours.

Together we can make a difference!
