A Special Giving Opportunity.....

Thank you for your support. Your desire to make a difference in this world has made a difference, and we are very thankful that Afghan people have had their lives changed with your help.

We wanted to share with you a very special opportunity to give more than 100% from November 10 through December 1st. Please share this with those you know who care. During this time, we are privileged to receive additional matching funds from your donation through Global Giving of at least 30%. The need is still great. Afghanistan struggles to become a country of strength and stability.

The Bon are a minority Tibetan ethnic group that fled to India when the Chinese invaded Tibet in 1959. In 1968, the Bon established a community in Dolanji, India on donated land. The community has an orphanage, children’s hostel, school (to the 10th class), health center, and community farm. Essential oils, which are valuable for their healing properties, have been used for over 6 years at the health center to treat various ailments. Some of the essential oils are now able to be procured in India. However, most high quality essential oils still come from the west. Earlier this year, a volunteer, using funds raised through this project, delivered the following essential oils requested by the project to the project: thyme, cinnamon leaf, cedar leaf, petitgrain, niaouli, onion, yarrow, aniseed, cumin, ajowan, eucalyptus, manuka, benzoin and grapeseed.
