Building Sustainable Bridges:
Enrich, Strengthen and Aid communities.
Fundraising Goal: $7,108
At the invitation of Tibetan Village Project founder Tamdin Wangdu, I have been asked to develop a series of informative and inspiring short films to help the people of Tibet. I have offered my expertise and film making skills as a donation. I am asking for your help to cover some of the travel expenses. I will be traveling in 2017 to create short informative films about, respectively: the work of Konchok Foundation; Tibetan Village Project; and the life of The 12th Trungpa, Chokyi Senge Rinpoche.
Tibetan Village Project (TVP) is a Colorado-based Tibetan organization founded by Tamdin Wangdu that has been working to create sustainable livelihoods for Tibetans for 16 years. Among other projects, TVP played a vital role in support of the 2010 Yushu earthquake victims by (1) providing winterized tents for families, (2) supporting to rebuild business communities and (3) sending students to college. I will visit TVP’s project sites around Yushu to film stories of project beneficiaries in order to showcase the impact of the aid received, and to garner further support in the region.
The mission of the Konchok Foundation is to help meet the spiritual, cultural, educational and humanitarian needs of the Tibetan people in Surmang and elsewhere in eastern Tibet. Among its major projects, it has undertaken to build a modern community shedra (monastic college) at Surmang Dutsi Til monastery. I will film this important work to provide an update to Konchok Foundation supporters, and convey the aspirations and needs of local community, with particular emphasis on how these projects can become sustainable and economically viable for local communities. In addition I will give an update about the life and aspirations of The 12th Trungpa, Chokyi Senge Rinpoche, who is the main lineage holder of the Surmang Dults-til region.
Invitation to practice Generosity and join me on this wonderful journey.
If you can not give financially please help by sharing with those who may.
The goal of this campaign is to raise $7,108 by the end of 2017 to cover travel costs. I will donate my time, expertise, and equipment. All donors will receive gifts, from Tibet, great merit, appreciation, and will appear in film credits. Please help me on this journey to create ongoing sustainable development for communities on the Tibetan plateau. In addition we would like to extend an invitation to join us in the future to come on a conscious journeys to experience the people, culture and beauty of Tibet. Tashi Delek! KI KI SO SO!
