IMSB is helping to provide local foster kids with needed school supplies.

One IMSB member (Farzaneh) has already purchased 28 backpacks. We now invite you to volunteer to fill one or more of these backpacks.

Dear IMSB sangha members:

The practice of generosity is a basic way to experience happiness and freedom. Happiness, inner calm and gratitude grow when they are fed by a compassionate and generous heart.

Generosity is not just about helping those less fortunate than us, it is about giving freely, without condition, without judgment, without need of explanation or glorification. Generosity is the act of selflessness, and it is practice of renunciation.

I would like to invite you to join me to send some of the foster children in our community to school in this coming school year with a brand new backpack and school supplies, and perhaps plant a seed of kindness in the hearts of these youngsters.

You may down load the list of items needed for 2nd-5th graders, and bring your donations to our IMSB weekly sitting group any Tuesday in July.

On behalf of the “HELP ONE CHILD “organization I will be more than happy to provide a tax deductible receipt.

May your giving hands and compassionate heart, bring joy and happiness to your life and the life of others.
