Hi,

Although we do not and cannot endorse or vouch for any particular charities, this space if for Sangha members to mention CHARITIES, VOLUNTEER ORGANIZATIONS AND FUND RAISING DRIVES ... local, national and international ... THAT THEY THINK ARE WORTH NOTING and which could use help.

If there is some cause or group that you think is important, please introduce them here and provide information and links.

We cannot endorse or vouch for any particular charity mentioned by someone, or guaranty its reliability, trustworthiness, use of funds, sponsors, effectiveness, honesty or the like. Unfortunately, there are many bad people out there together with the good, so please do your research and be careful! FOR THAT REASON, WE STRONGLY URGE ANYONE THINKING OF DONATING TO A CHARITY WHICH THEY DO NOT KNOW, TO FIRST RESEARCH THE CHARITY THROUGH A VARIETY OF SOURCES, INCLUDING CHARITY RATING SERVICES SUCH AS THE FOLLOWING WHICH REPORT ON CHARITY FINANCES.

In giving and helping, a Bodhisattva's Work is truly done.

Gassho, Jundo
