We have a shipment of blankets and singing bowls leaving Nepal later this week. For any of you who want to order anything specific, you will need to notify me of your wants before 2 October, 2015. Reply to my email address or send a text message for those of you who have my cell number.
As the weather cools and the holiday season approaches, now would be a good time to place your blanket orders. Until we ship the blankets, we won’t have a final cost; however, the more we order, the smaller the unit cost.
They are a unique gift that funds an economy on the other side of the world that desperately needs the cash. They are well received and last for years and years, and 100% of the profits will go back into the economy to pay for the last half of the teacher training.
We are also getting some Tibetan singing bowls. Here is a link to a Wikipedia article that will help you understand what a singing bowl is. These are often played in Yoga studios and are an even-more-unique gift than the blankets. Again, I don’t have a final cost for these bowls. For now, budget anywhere from $20 to $80, based on our final shipping fees.
The TNT Bank account is nearly empty after funding the first part of the teacher training. Give something, get something, and make the world a better place.
Lastly, keep Nepal in your prayers. India only recently released a blockade at the southern border that had prevented the import not only of food but of fuel. This hurt the economy nearly as much as the Earthquakes, for those who rely on a predictable supply of fuel. The Nepali people are hurting and need help.
