Pennies for Partnerships continues with success as Tibetan Organic Farmers see that the program management is in place.
On May 26th PfP Program manager in Mundgod, Sonam la, once again sees to it that the families we have made a commitment to are served. The PfP team in Mundgod distributed 20 bags of Tibetan Organic Rice weighing 25 kg each (55 pounds) to those who have been identified as recipients of your gifts due to their suffering from hunger and poverty.
Here are a few photos of the delivery made by the Tibetan Organic Farmers PfP Team.
At this time I would like to thank all of you who make this possible. The needs of the families are perpetuated by rising food costs and extreme poverty. I am currently working to sustain this program to assist these families who suffer from food insecurity and mal-nutrition by asking for family pledges to sponsor a family for one year with food subsistence. The program will provide a staple item for 2 weeks in which the family is provided an additional 2 weeks supply through the Indian government Ration Card. With your commitment the families are ensured the opportunity to eat each day and use any savings from the gift to purchase more nutritional food. The 25 kg bag of rice is equivalent to some families entire monthly income.
If you are interested in sponsoring a family I will send you photos and a family assessment identifying the family income, number of children and other aspects of the family. On average these families live on $1.00 to $2.00 a day.
For as little as $ .50 a day, $15.00 a month you too can help a family in need and see to it that the children do not have hunger in their days. Annual commitment is $ 180 A YEAR and you can determine if you wish to make the full commitment in one donation or monthly.
Please send a comment on this blog, or email if you are interested in this opportunity to give.

June 4th is the most auspicious day of the year for giving in the Tibetan Buddhist Tradition. It is Saka Dawa and Buddhists believe that the karmic merits of giving on this day a multiplied by 100,000 times.
June’s blog will feature a family bio identifying those most in need.
Thank you for your generosity, compassion and loving kindness which makes it possible for PfP to continue to serve those in need in the Tibetan Organic Farming Community and their surrounding neighbors.
I look forward to hearing from you.
