Welcome Dashu out of retreat

Dashu is coming out of his year long retreat this Friday, the 11th February!

It would feel great to me if we could welcome him out with a good present, something that he will really use as he enters back into the wide world with us.

I happen to know that his phone  and laptop are both broken, but he's short on money to replace them himself.  He's loves the iphone and Macbook, so I'm sure he'd be well happy at getting these. It's also great for us as these are what he would use to communicate with us, continue his Dharma study for our benefit, and maybe even his work for the Dharma.

What I would get him depends on how much we raise:

£500 - decent iphone
£1000 - fantastic iphone
£1500 - decent iphone & decent macbook laptop
£1800 - fantastic iphone & decent macbook laptiop
£2700 - fantastic iphone & fantastic macbooklaptop
£3000 - fantastic iphone & fantastic macbooklaptop & fancy extras

If you give now, I'll try to get at least the phone ready to give to him publicly as a welcome gift when we all greet him out of retreat.

In case you've forgotten it, here's the video Dashu did half way through his retreat where he says how much he has appreciated our support:
