Every year Tara Dhatu Humanitarian Outreach holds a raffle to raise funds for one of our projects. This year the headmaster of Atisha school in Kathmandu sent a request for help in improving the toilets. Our Humanitarian Outreach Director, Lilliha Herington, held a raffle to raise the requested $$$$$.
She is a master quilter and made all of the prizes!!
From her penâ€¦.
Halloween night Jackie Johnson, our database Tara in California,Â Â chose four numbers to determine the
winners of the Atisha raffle.
Winner of the first prize is Julie Thomas from Ohio.Â I will get together with Julie to plan her backpack or tote.Â Congratulations, Julie.
Helen Appell of Oregon, Jasmine Ginter of Hawaii and Elena Lopez Sans of New York each won a “Tara mat”, a lovely (if I do say so myself)
quilted mat/wallhanging in rich oriental-style fabric.Â Your mats areÂ now finished and I willÂ get them in the mail to you this week.
Thanks to all of you who bought tickets.
This week I will wire $2,000 to Atisha Primary in Kathmandu, Nepal.Â This money will be used on much-needed improvements on the toilets.
Love to all,
