Why do we give to causes that are close to our heart? Because we genuinely enjoy doing it. We don’t need to wait for the holiday season to do “good.” We don’t do it for the tax deduction or to feel good about it at a fundraiser or when our name is listed on the donors’ list. We don’t exploit the donation shamelessly for a public relations campaign like some big corporations and Hollywood celebrities. And we’re not going to wait until the economy gets better and we have more money to spare. We do it when we can and when we want to, quietly behind the scenes. It doesn’t have to always be money; sometimes it’s doing what we do best, like donating our creative services. It really comes down to caring, and underlying that caring is love. Isn’t that why we are all here to begin with? Please, let’s not forget that.
We chose the following worthy organizations this year
We are a global branding agency and we live in a global world. Being, living and learning from many cultures and religions of the world has always been one of our core values. So, let’s be open and learn from each other. Together, we can create a more peaceful planet. We’re happy to share with you here some information about the organizations we support.
A house of prayer for all
Welcome to our Cathedral community. At The Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine, we serve our NYC neighbors through social services that include education, poverty prevention, homeless outreach, advocacy and open-minded discourse. Our most cherished goal is to serve as a House of Prayer for All and as a center for intellectual light and learning. Our programs—programs that you support through your giving—do so much for so many.
The Zen Buddhist temple and monastery
The Buddha’s community, his teaching and indeed his life, were made possible by the townspeople whose donations supported him, day by day, meal by meal. And from that day to this, nothing has changed. We rely on our community’s generosity of heart to continue our zazen practice and this Dharma teaching, day after day, year after year. Please consider supporting our Sangha, our Buddhist community. Help ensure that this practice, these temples, can continue to be a refuge for you and for the generations to come. Share your sustenance with us, just as those townspeople shared their meal with Buddha so long ago. And please come and visit our lovely monastery. Please accept our deepest gratitude for your donations.
Sufi organization from the descendants of Rumi “Mevlana”
Love is the vital core of the soul. And of all you see, only love is infinite. With love you don’t bargain. There, the choice is not yours. Love is a mirror; it reflects only your essence, if you have the courage to look in its face. If you find me not within you, you will never find me. For, I have been with you, from the beginning of me.
The Way of Nature Fellowship
Our Fellowship is an international community of people coming together to accomplish five basic aspirations: 1) Loving experience of our Oneness with Mother Earth and celebrating our interconnectedness with All Species. 2) Opening and embracing a spiritual path that honors and appreciates all religions and all lineages. 3) Exploring the essential Principles that all earth-honoring, enlightening lineages share in common. 4) Realizing the Path to Liberation. 5) Deepening our compassionate service to the well-being, happiness and liberation of all living beings.
Relief and support for Syrian children
The conflict in Syria has forced thousands of Syrians to flee to Lebanon, Jordan and surrounding countries. Fears are growing for Syrian children and families hit by freezing winter weather as huge funding shortages endanger relief operations in the region. Some children are huddling three to a blanket, sleeping in makeshift shelters made of billboards, and falling sick as temperatures plunge.
In response to Syrian refugees’ needs in neighboring Lebanon, Iraq and Jordan, Save the Children is on the ground, providing warm clothes, shoes and blankets for children, as well as winter aid packages specially made for infants. We are prepared to respond in Syria as soon as the situation allows.
Your support will help us protect vulnerable children and provide desperately needed relief to families. Donate now to the Syria Children in Crisis Fund to support Save the Children’s responses to ongoing and urgent needs as a result of the conflict.
