With Buddhist Project Sunshine's mission complete, Andrea is closing her BPS social justice campaign February 4th, 2019

Without doubt, it can be said that the mission of Buddhist Project Sunshine has been accomplished at this point, and far more. The original mission was to bring healing light to the sexualized violence in Shambhala. That has happened beyond what I could ever have imagined two years ago, as in the last week the first Shambhala leader was arrested for sexually assaulting a minor and police investigations  are now in progress with respect to Osel Mukpo and John Weber.

I am leaving the GofundMe campaign open until February 4th for anyone who would like to contribute to help me pay the debt I accumulated as I devoted my time and energy to BPS. My debt is $20,200. I made decisions along the way to continue to focus on BPS rather than shift my focus back to my coaching service because I personally needed the sexualized violence to be brought out into the light. I do not regret this. And now I am turning my attention to my own healing, paying my debt, and moving forward with a good life. I welcome financial help from those who feel they benefitted from my efforts. If you feel moved, you can contribute here.

I am sincerely grateful to every single person who contributed to the life changing positive work of this project ❤️

As I shut down the Buddhist Project Sunshine GoFundMe this evening, I want to send out one final message of thanks. This has been a really long haul, and I know there have been some serious bumps along the way. Nevertheless I know that each of us have brought our best to this, and what we have accomplished together is very powerful. We have turned a powerful tide, and we have reestablished goodness. So may our attention rest gently on that goodness as we move forward. I thank each of you from my heart, and I am wishing joy for you as you move forward in your lives. Peace!

Without doubt, it can be said that the mission of Buddhist Project Sunshine has been accomplished at this point, and far more. The original mission was to bring healing light to the sexualized violence in Shambhala. That has happened beyond what I could ever have imagined two years ago, and investigations now continue in the capable and neutral hands of law enforcement.

I am pleased to share that a small group of exceptionally good-hearted volunteers will be offering an “add on” to the project. Volunteers will be offering a BPS news service this winter! The news service will be completely in their hands, and I will have nothing to do with it. I will formally pass the reins to the volunteers’ news service through my existing communication channels on February 4th. So stay tuned to my blog for more information coming shortly!

Today is Giving Tuesday, a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it's a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for favourite causes.

Today is also the day when news about Shambhala’s commissioned investigation is hitting the papers. This is an investigation carefully crafted to cover up harms and corruption by the Sakyong and leaders around him. Although the company they hired may be neutral, Shambhala will carefully choose what findings to release publicly and what to keep secret for the “good of the community.”

We’d love to receive your support for continuing to track the Sakyong’s alleged criminal activities and provide a voice of truth. Please give generously to support the continued work of Buddhist Project Sunshine.

Support for BPS is picking up. We received over $10,000 in donations in the past week+! A large part of that, $9,492, were made outside of GoFundMe, so I have lowered the amount in our campaign to reflect that. We know the work we are doing is important, and we give our sunlight service from deep within our hearts. Thank you for being part of this once-in-a-lifetime adventure. May true peace reign and all beings benefit!
