Meet Just a Few of Our Partners Pledging Their Support to SSP This #GivingTuesday.
Herbal Revolution Farm and Apothecary provides high-quality herbal teas, tonics, and elixirs, all handcrafted in small batches.
Herbal Revolution is based in beautiful midcoast Maine, where Kathi Langelier and her team gather wild herbs in a sustainable way from the coast, fields, and forests.
Herbal Revolution products are made in small batches to ensure the integrity and quality of the herbs that are being used. Every step in the process is taken with great care and respect, infusing the herbs and the products with positive intentions of health and wellness.
Herbal Revolution is donating 60% of all online sales on #GivingTuesday to the Siddhartha School Scholarship Fund.
We are honored that Herbal Revolution, as our newest #GivingTuesday partner, is making such a generous and kind pledge to help SSP raise money for student scholarships. We’ve also fallen in love with Kathi’s baby goat, Flora, (pictured helping out in the garlic field). From Maine to Ladakh, it’s all about the kids!
SoulSpace Healing Acupuncture and Wellness Center, Malibu, CA is making a very generous pledge to donate to Siddhartha School this #GivingTuesday. Owner Corie Tappin shares:
“On this day I will be giving 100% of ALL payments for acupuncture services to my beloved Siddhartha School in Ladakh India.”
You can contact SoulSpace here to make your appointment. She advises her clients to book ahead for this special day and “know that while receiving a healing acupuncture treatment from me, you are giving back to a wonderful cause,” and she shares that she is impressed that Siddhartha School is the first of its kind to have social, emotional and secular, ethical learning as a core component of the curriculum.
This emphasis is part of His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s vision for 21st-century education that maintains Tibetan Buddhist values and ethics while students obtain a high-quality education. His Holiness the Dalai Lama visits the Siddhartha School and gets regular updates on progress. Corie says, “I was thrilled to meet with him on my visit to the school two summers ago, and honored to return last summer to inaugurate the school’s new dormitories for remote village children, a project my family supported.”
Global Family Travels in Seattle, WA, is grateful to be a longtime partner of the Siddhartha School Project, and we salute its successful endeavors to provide quality education to Ladakhi youth while preserving and enhancing the local culture of Ladakh. Founder Jennifer Spatz has been blessed to visit SSP the last two summers while leading trips to Ladakh for clients and donors of the project.
(Read about one adventure here!) She is pictured here with Stanzin Tsephal, the SSP student her family has sponsored for many years.
On #GivingTuesday, Global Family Travels is offering $200 to the Siddhartha School campaign for each person who joins one of its two trips to Ladakh next summer.
These unique and meaningful trips will overlap at the school on July 13, 2019, for a special blessing of the new Multipurpose Hall by Khen Rinpoche Lobzang Tsetan, Siddhartha School’s founder and abbot of the Tashi Lhunpo Monastery. Click on links to download itinerary:
