Filming a Birthday Video for Brian this Sunday
Sunday, January 19 after Sunday sit (6pm)
Brian's 50th Birthday is just around the corner. His wife, Robin has asked friends far and wide to celebrate Brian for his 50th Birthday. So we would like everyone to join us at the Sangha right after Sunday sit (6pm) to film a short birthday video (should only take a few minutes). As a Sangha, we have funds that we will donate to one of his charities. Here is Robin's letter that explains her idea:
Hi Friends! Hope you are well as we begin this calendar year on the planet together 😊
It is 2020, the year my beloved Brian turns 50! His birthday is Feb 5th, and one of his favorite gifts to give or receive is donations to charities. So if you would like to honor his birthday in some way, you could make a donation either to your fav charity / organization or to one of the ones listed below.
Then, please send a short video to me that includes that you made a donation and to which charity. If it is one of yours, tell him something about why you support them. The amount is irrelevant, it’s the movement of generosity.
If you would like to do this, please send me your video before January 23rd.
And if, by the fates, we are all in the same area some time this year, we’ll have a meal together to say “yay! You made it to 50! So glad we’re in the world together!”
Some of Brian's favorite charities: Kiva, Natural Resources Defense Council, 350.org, Friends of the Earth, Environmental Defense Fund, ACLU.
Come for sit if you can, or just for the filming. The Sunday sit topic is Sangha!
With metta and gratitude,
Your Sangha Board
