How to Send Humanitarian Aid to Ladakh by scottcronenweth

Hi again, everyone — Joli Greene, President of Siddhartha School Project, has come up with a great way to make it easy to send money to Ladakh — and save the $35 fee per transaction.

Joli will act as the contact person for wiring money. She’ll record and acknowledge each donation and send them to Vivek weekly. To don…ate, send checks made out to “Joli Greene” or “cash.” Please note on your check that it’s for “Ladakh Aid.” Mail to: Joli Greene, 9 Frost Brook Lane, Freeport, ME 04032-6601. E-mail questions to joli@suscom-maine.net.

Every donation counts and no donation is too small. Thank you so much for your support!

These donations are not tax-deductible in the US no matter how you send them, so you’re not losing anything by going through Joli, and you’re saving considerable money and time.

For information from Vivek, including a description of his efforts and funds raised to date, copy this link into your browser:

Hello. This is Laura Kogonis’ husband. We are and have been away and just learned of the flash floods in Ladakh. Has anyone heard from Geshe la?

Hi, Anastasios — Rinpoche is OK. Connectivity has been almost nonexistent so we haven’t heard from him directly. I got a call finally this morning from Lisa Blake, an SSP board member who’s in Stok. She said Rinpoche’s been very busy offering support in the community, even pitching in with a shovel. He’s leaving soon for Tashi Lhunpo, then shortly back to the US. Possibly you’ll see him when he’s in NYC?
