Trees For Vladyka’s Garden

Do you want to do something really nice for Metropolitan Hilarion and help out a monastery at the same time? Here is your chance. Vladyka’s spiritual retreat is the Holy Protection Skete in Buena, NJ. It’s the most magical and amazing place you have ever seen. There is absolutely NOTHING fancy about it. Everything is simple - just like our Vladyka. Vladyka’s personal secretary Fr. Tikhon, is the abbot or the skete and he’s doing some really incredible work to restore this forgotten little church. With spring in full bloom and Pascha around the corner, now is the perfect time for you to give Vladyka what he really wants. It’s nothing crazy - he just wants a garden. There are a lot of deer at the skete and Vladyka needs help building a fence around the garden. Fr. Tikhon would also like to plant a row of evergreen pines so that vladyka can have a little privacy from the main road. So the fundraiser is simple. We need to buy 20 trees at $65 each and approximately $700 in supplies for the fence around the garden. Total amount needed is $2,000. I really need your help to get this done before Pascha. Vladyka will be back on bright week and this would be a great present for him and the skete. Please make a donation now because the trees are ready for pickup as of April 19th. All proceeds from this gofundme page will go directly to the skete. I’m just trying to do my part in helping get this project off the ground. Will you do your part and buy a tree for vladyka’s garden?
