Help Educate the Heart Today

Will you help educate the heart of a child today?
The news is rife with stories that cause us to worry about the messages our kids receive as they grow up. Will these influences help them to develop into well-rounded, capable and compassionate young people?
More and more people are agreeing that we must weave compassion into homes, communities and even into the economy. Because the bottom line is that this is the best way forward.

Emerging research shows that a child who learns compassion, empathy and cooperation has a better chance for lifelong success and happiness. To counteract bullying, violence and other anti-social behaviours.

Will you make a gift today to support programs that help educate children to be more engaged, happy, and compassionate? 
You and I have an amazing opportunity: to prepare children to cope with the world by educating their hearts.

Compassion, acceptance and tolerance can be learned just like we learn to ride a bike, read a book, or learn how to add and subtract. 
The Dalai Lama Center is poised to “educate the hearts” of young people. To help them grow into young adults who are compassionate, confident, have respect and enjoy healthy relationships
Your gift also supports innovative programs that help cultivate emotional intelligence in children – delivered in-person and online to reach as many people as possible.

So, I urge you to make a gift today to support this work. You’ll make a lasting investment in a child's future. And indeed the future of our world.

Whether your gift is $35, $50, $100 or more, your gift will increase compassion. And when you decide to help, please consider becoming a special monthly donor. For $20 a month, you can help the Dalai Lama Center ensure children receive opportunities to educate their hearts in schools, in afterschool programs and at home.
The Dalai Lama Center is counting on your support. You will make a significant difference for children and for the creation of a world where people truly care about one another. You will open hearts and build a better future, one where compassion makes a difference. 
Thank you.
