We are pleased to announce that Sumeru has made a $618 donation to the Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation of Canada (Toronto branch), on behalf of the many Canadian Buddhist teachers, practitioners, and scholars who contributed to our book Lotus Petals in the Snow: Voices of Canadian Buddhist Women. Thank you to these noble bodhisattvas.
Thank you to the many readers who purchased a copy of the book. All profits from sales of the book are donated to charity. If you would like to purchase a copy of the book (and contribute to a future donation of royalties), here is more information about it: http://www.sumeru-books.com/dd-product/writings-canadian-buddhist-women/
The funds will assist with Tzu Chi’s longterm commitment to Chantel’s Place, the Trillium Health Partnership’s Sexual Assault Care and Domestic Violence Services in Peel Region.
The Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation is a non-denominational, global organization. Mr. Wang was kind to share several books with me about the charity, the remarkable nun who is its founder, and its work.
