An Online Fundraiser to Support Buddhist Global Relief
The Bay Area is coming together again this year for an online version of the Walk to Feed the Hungry in support of Buddhist Global Relief, an organization that directly addresses hunger and poverty around the world and in the US. This year, in addition to making an online donation, there will be two ways to participate in the Walk:
1) Make a Mindful Movement Pledge
Pledge to do an activity in support of the Action to Feed the Hungry. The activity might be walking or cycling, for example. Just create a fundraising page to participate! Share your Mindful Movement Pledge, and encourage other folks to donate in support of your efforts.
2) Join our Buddhist Action to Feed the Hungry online gathering
On Saturday, October 3rd, from 1 to 3 p.m. Pacific Time, we will get together online to hear from our host temples: Berkeley Buddhist Monastery, Berkeley Buddhist Temple, and Berkeley Zen Center. We’ll also enjoy video of Mindful Movement activities, and hear from BGR Executive Director Kim Behan and from Venerable Bhikkhu Bodhi, the Founder and Chair of BGR. Zoom links are available on the Berkeley Action page very soon.
Your generous donation will support Buddhist Global Relief’s work to feed the hungry, to educate children in need, to support sustainable agriculture, and to empower vulnerable women. You may also choose to give directly through the BGR website at buddhistglobalrelief.org/donate.
