Fall Appeal

Dear Pilgrims and Pioneers,

As we take some time to savor and appreciate our past accomplishments, let us also look to the great dharmic opportunities awaiting us and lay the ground for their success. As of now, we're kicking off our annual funding appeal. This year's goal is 50k by January 1, 2014. Buck mediocrity by supporting our most basic natural resource—the intrinsic freedom inherent in every single heart and mind. Go ahead and revel in that non-corruptible nugget! Participate in liberation. Provide good conditions in some way or another to whatever extent you can by giving now. In advance, great thanks and sighs of relief on behalf of the generations of pilgrims and adventurers to come.
