Dear friends & family,
My birthday is coming up and I want to dedicate a birthday wish this year to the Tibetan Freedom Movement and specifically to the wonderful organization - Students for a Free Tibet in the UK.
Growing up in England in the Tibetan community, I was always interested in how to create long-lasting social change that would also bring about the personal development of young Tibetans and our supporters who seek to make a difference in this world.
I've always been interested in this long-term approach that can both help the Tibetan struggle and our people at the same time.
As I've grown older, I've realized there is one organization that does this so well - that contributes to a better future by training young people to be critical thinkers and to develop skills that enable them to be more effective in their work for Tibet while at the same time enhancing their personal development overall so that they benefit in every part of their lives.
The organization is Students for a Free Tibet.
SFT is one organization that has had a profound effect on the Tibetan freedom movement as well as on so many young people - both Tibetans and non-Tibetans.
SFT has enabled them to become more efficient, effective and resourceful. Considering the limited resources and time that we as Tibetans have - developing these skills is desperately needed in our society.
So today I am asking you - on my 41st birthday! - to help me raise money for this amazing organization to continue to do its important work in the UK.
I want to help SFT UK become secure and well-established so that they can make serious progress for the Tibetan freedom movement in Europe.
I know the young people involved in SFT UK now - like Padma Domla - are some of the brightest and most committed young professionals in our movement and I have no doubt they can take the Tibetan issue to new heights in Europe - they just need the backing and resources to do so.
This is where you and I come in. Let's help them do it.
My goal is to raise $1000 for SFT UK through this birthday wish and I ask all my friends and family to help me do it - for the sake of our freedom struggle and the future success of our youth.
With many thanks and much love,
