STILL TIME to Honor the Women in Your Life (Support the 2019 BWA's World Conf.)
Arigato Obaachan: Sponsor a Dharma Leaf for this International Convention
GOOD NEWS! We still have time to honor the powerful women in our life at the upcoming International Conference of the Buddhist Women’s Association.
Conference organizers are accepting additional donations — and the chance to honor the important women in your life — for many more months. (The Conferece itself takes place in San Francisco August 30 to September 1. )
With the theme of “Arigato Obaachan,” (Thank You Grandmother), this special opportunity to honor the awesome women in your life also serves to allow you to help this international convention succeed. The theme begins with the pioneering Buddhist women who helped build many of the Temples we enjoy today, but embraces mothers, aunties, and other wonderful women in our families.
All Buddhists are encouraged to sponsor a Dharma leaf at various categories of giving (gold, silver, bronze, and lavendar) to honor these awesome women. The Dharma leaves will be proudly displayed at this world meeting, whose success the leaves ensure.
The donation deadline is December 31, 2018.
