Bangles/Bracelets for Bucks $1.00 Online Raffle Tickets

Hello, Namaste and Tashi Delek from India.

Many of you are aware of the Tibetan Plight and the current situation inside Tibet as well as the History of Tibetans fleeing  into exile.

March 10th marked the 53rd year of the Tibetan Uprising and the continued situation of Human Rights violations inside Tibet which has forced many Tibetans to make the difficult decision to escape the violent oppressive conditions in hopes of someday returning to Tibet with  basic human rights to include freedom of expression, freedom of religion…..

At this time the Pennies for Partnerships would like to also recognize the needs of those living in Exile in India and the difficulties faced as a displaced population. The Pennies for Partnerships outreach to support the Tibetan Organic Farmers is one way in which we can support those working diligently to create a better environment through their commitment to Environmental consciousness of organic farming practices. Pennies for Partnerships was alerted one year ago to the growing concern of increased poverty within the Tibetan Organic Farming Community due to the slow growth of the organic market in India. In order to show support to the farmers’ commitment to create a healthy environment and remain organic we stand with them during the slow growth period by purchasing rice directly from the organic farmers at a fair market value. Additionally, this is one way of showing support to the Tibetan people as they continue their Human Rights campaign while facing different complications while displaced from their Tibetan homeland.

So today on March 12th Tibetan Women’s Uprising Day we initiate a fund raiser called “BANGLES/BRACELETS FOR BUCKS”.

“Bangles/Bracelets For Bucks” is an online raffle.

We hope to generate additional financial support to assist the Tibetan Organic Farmers through the opportunity for you to get a little something in return. Thanks to our International friend Franz, from Austria, who recently visited the Tibetan community in Mundgod with me, we now have the option to offer you a little gift from India in return for your support to the Pennies for Partnerships Outreach. This is a true outreach program which is a gift that keeps on giving. There are 15 bangles/bracelets available for the raffle (only a few photos available at this time due to slow internet).

Franz, a true philanthropist, helped an Indian merchant who was struggling to keep his business by purchasing a large amount of jewelry which he has now donated to our project. Additionally, he has offered to support the online raffle by Matching BUCK FOR BUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We have 15 bangles/bracelets to raffle.  We have pulled out all the bangles/bracelets for this raffle and the rest of the fashion jewelry will be given to the Indian community in an effort to help them to develop a small business opportunity.

So how about that?  Pennies for Partnerships continues the mission to take something like pennies, aluminum, clothing or anything that one chooses to give and we take the gifts with pleasure in hopes of turning it into something for those in need.

$1.00 Raffle Tickets are now available for a short time so please don’t wait. Buy as many $1.00 raffle tickets as you wish and increase your opportunity to receive an Indian Bangle/Bracelet.  All raffle tickets can be purchased either online through the paypal DONATE button on the left sidebar or you can can contact me directly at if you wish to send check or make direct deposit.

With the funds generated through the ONLINE RAFFLE –  “BANGLES/BRACELETS FOR BUCKS” we will continue our  efforts to support Tibetan Organic practices through the procurement of organic rice which is then distributed in 25 kg (55 pounds) bags  to some of the poorest Indian neighboring communities facing hunger in Mundgod, India. The Tibetan settlement camp close to Mundgod is called Tattihali and was the second refugee camp to be established in India (1962). Tattahali is home to approximately 20,000 Tibetans and is the largest community committed to organic farming. Additionally there are approximately 1000 organic farmers.

Thank you for your interest in supporting the Pennies for Partnerships Outreach Online Raffle. We would like to ask for your consideration to the cost of shipping which will be approximately $2.00 for United States donors and approximately $4.00 to other countries. As well the items offered in the raffle range from retail price of  $2.00 to $50.00. The Bangles and Bracelets are brass, metal, silver and some with porcelain details. Nice fashion jewelry and gifts for those sweet ladies in your life.

Thank you again and please spread the word.

Remember “Sharing is Caring” and we ask that you pass on the link to our site in hopes of generating more partners in outreach to address global poverty and hunger.

Also we would like to thank all the friends from Kudle Beach who have donated clothing and other items such as mattresses, rugs, blankets, books for the children and more.
