Send Lama Matt to Toronto

In 2015 I had the honor of attending the Parliament of World Religions in Salt Lake City, UT. It was a powerful and life transforming experience. It is my hope to attend the Parliament of World Religions again, this time in Toronto, Canada in 2018 as a representative not only of the Buddhist faith, but also of the Rime Buddhist Center and the Greater Kansas City Interfaith Council. 

Unfortunately the expences of traveling to Toronto for the event are outside of my budget. I am asking you, my friends and family to help me meet my goal for travel. All money raised will pay for airfare, housing, and for the registration fee for the event itself.

Please help  me meet my goal by November 1st, so I can pay for these expenses before prices begin to go up at the beginning of the year. Whether it is a large amount or just a few dollars, I am extremely grateful for your support.
