Dear Friends and Members of Drepung Loseling,

Hurricane Irma has caused severe destruction in the U.S. and in the Caribbean.

The need for aid is clear to help provide immediate relief and prepare for recovery efforts.
As we look to support those affected by Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts continue.
We request you to join us in keeping all the victims, their families and all those aiding in relief efforts in your prayers.
GlobalGiving, which calls itself the largest global crowdfunding community, has a goal of raising $5 million for its Harvey relief fund. Funds will be used first for immediate needs of food, water and shelter and then transition to long-term recovery efforts.
Our Spiritual Director, Geshe Lobsang Tenzin, is donating an additional $1,000 from his discretionary fund, for a total of $2,000, and we would like to request that our friends and members also consider making a financial contribution. There are many relief organizations through which this can be done.
Alternatively, if you would like to make your contribution to Drepung Loseling, for us to make a collective donation, we have selected GlobalGiving through whom we will be donating the funds.
Donations may be made in person at DLM or Online at "Hurricane Relief".
We will split the funds raised evenly for both of their fundraising efforts to Hurricanes Irma and Harvey.
We will be collecting donations until Tuesday October 3, 2017. After that date, 100% of the collected funds will be sent to GlobalGiving and we will inform you of how much was collected.
Tragedies like this remind us how susceptible we all are to natural calamities and how dependent we are upon the kindness and support of others in times of need.

Please join us in keeping the people impacted by these devastating hurricanes in our thoughts and prayers, and volunteering, or assisting financially if you are able.

Sincerely,

Irene Lee
Executive Director
