We Saved A Turkey!

WE DID IT! WE RESCUED A TURKEY! Thank you to all of  the donors who bought Double Garuda Badges to help us make this special save this year and sponsor Victoria over at the Farm Sanctuary's New York Shelter!

It's interesting that the season of gratitude is followed by the season of giving because you need to first appreciate before you can share that appreciation! May all beings appreciate their lives and give thanks! I give thanks to those who donated and celebrated their lives by sponsoring another's.

Much Metta and Happy Thanks!

Been a while...

It's been a while since we did a post but wanted to keep this fresh, so here are some crazy updates:

  • We've collected and donated over $1,000 to some great causes like Stand Proud, The Farm Sanctuary, and Survivors of Tortuere, International!
  • We've added new charities to our roster such as Krochet Kids and the Reciprocity Foundation
  • We've had one guest badge since the summer, and have had a great suggestion that lead to a three badge series about the Three Jewels
  • We've instituted the #mettabomb hashtag on Twitter to facilitate Tweeters to express a new type of respect, support, and praise. Check out our special #mettabomb page and accompanying badge!
  • Today, we just donated $300 to the American Himalayan Foundation
  • BuddhaBadges took the show on the road to Buddha For You to help with the Dharma Bum Kids program run by David Viafora. We talked about generosity and dana to about 22 kids ranging from 6 to 11 and had them design and make their own badges about giving. See the pics below!
