DAY 18: Being unreasonable isn't always bad…

Apart from the opportunity to benefit personally from practising mindfulness, collectively we have had a profound impact on the lives of people who struggle daily to access clean drinking water. Your generosity is deeply inspiring.

One in six people in the world, don’t have this “luxury” of clean, safe drinking  water and four thousand children die each day because of the consequences of drinking contaminated water.

This year, we set a target of $70,000, doubling last years fundraising effort to address this global water crisis.

Not only have we reached that goal…but we reached it within the FIRST WEEK of the campaign, improving the lives of over 1000 people in Rwanda. 

It seems that extraordinary things are possible within this community of meditators.

So with only two weeks left of this campaignwe invite you to imagine the possibility of bringing a THIRD water project to RWANDA which will help another 500 people access clean, safe drinking water.

Raising another $35,000 (the cost of one water project) in the next two weeks may be a spectacularly unreasonable aspiration…However, this community has already surpassed reasonable. 

The reasonable man adapts
himself to the world:
the unreasonable one persists in trying
to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress
depends on the unreasonable man.
~ George Bernard Shaw
