Fundraising for Drongngur Jangchubling

Currently Drongngur Jangchubling does not have a dining space that can seat more than four people. Therefore we are hoping to raise the funds to build an elevated covered deck attached to the residential unit that we could use as a dinning space during Dharma events, and in particular when hosting visiting lamas. We have already received an estimate from a contractor and our wish is to get started as soon as possible and hopefully have it built by the winter teachings in February. Please help by donating whatever you can, and hopefully we will be able to reach our goal!
