Lotus Blooming: Why Does it Matter?
While Lotus Blooming – our fundraising campaign for Planting Zen in Siskiyou Square – is about money, our vision and aspiration for Siskiyou Square is about the Dharma. So, why does Lotus Blooming matter?
“When I walked through the doors of Dharma Rain eight years ago, it didn’t occur to me that it would become such an integral and grounding part of my life. My practice here has certainly nurtured me in ways I never imagined possible – in ways nothing else does. Even though Ron is not a Buddhist himself, he understands the positive impact this project is having on the lives of many people in the community. He saw the opportunity to make a pledge now too good to pass up, and was excited to take advantage of the dollar-for-dollar matching challenge gift!”
– Polly Gemmon Lauser, Lay Disciple
Our Lotus Blooming Matching Gift Challenge is making progress. An anonymous donor who shares our enthusiasm for Planting Zen in Siskiyou Square has given $250,000 and is matching 1:1 every new or additional gift or pledge we receive through December 31st. You can make a donation or pledge here.
