Scientists have confirmed that expressing gratitude and giving thanks makes us happier and healthier.
Here at the Tibetan Nuns Project, we are very grateful for our global family of supporters who care deeply about the nuns and who have joined with us to help these brave and dedicated women.
Many of our supporters have told us via our survey that, by giving to the Tibetan Nuns Project, they also feel happier and are grateful for this opportunity to help.
Today, with their permission, we’d like to share some of their stories and words.
Jane in Los Angeles wrote and told us: “I care about supporting the peacemakers in the world—those who embody and teach compassion and peace. It is important to further both inner wisdom and compassionate action. A person who lives this not only lights the path for others, but lights their candle also.”
Felix in Ohio told us, “I support the Tibetan Nuns Project because they, as individuals, are very important. The nuns do incredible work like teaching and praying for others in need. They need our help and anyone else who can come forward to help. There are many nuns and just not enough money to support them. That’s why we are helping. Each month we will be able to sleep better knowing that our contribution of $30 a month for the Tibetan Nuns Project is going to good use. Thank you so much for this great opportunity.”
Sondra in Texas said, “I am acutely aware of the displacement of Tibetans and the pain it has caused. Especially for the monks and nuns. I live in a society that has an overabundance of material goods. I am a retired nurse and would like to share some of my good fortune with these women.”
