Special Requests & New Credit Card Donation Option
We have added a new section named Special Requests. Over the years we had many requests which were related to buddhist education and practice but didn't match the profile of our requirements. As a lot of them were valid and worthy of support we created a section where teachers , groups and organizations can ask fur support of special projects.
They can be about renovating the shrineroom, supporting a special teaching situation or materials for educational programs.It is a work in progress and doesn't have many specific ooutlines yet. Applications will be looked at and decided upon individually. The situation is like: we know what it is not - rather than we know what it is.
It is an opportunity for Buddhist groups and organizations to make special requests. These petitions will be displayed and run through TOB but TOB doesn't control them in the same way we do with the practitioners. We are not requesting any proof about how the donations are spent.
Our first project will be to support a special request from a Shambhala friend to help a Thanka painter in need.
In regard to the donors who expierenced problems with Paypal we have added a quick Credit Card donation payment venue, which will take Master and Visa cards. So you can choose what suits you best.
We hope you enjoy our updates as much as we do. Thank You from the Offering Bowl team.
