Mandala Press is up and running and has opened doors for us.
We had a successful first printing event last month at family days at the Crow for Chinese New Year. We will be printing March 3rd from 10 am - 2 pm for family day again.
Please help with our cause and participate in this year's postcard exchange.
We were no longer able to get coloring books into Tibet and Thupten Tendar has a monk friend that chose to stay behind, who opened this orphanage and school, which we are taking on to help, and all proceeds from the postcard print sale will go directly to the orphanage via the crow.
Thupten contacted us over Christmas and asked for our help. Since the situation in Tibet is getting so bad.. we thought if we can help one group of young folks directly, that was the way to go.
