Please sponsor me in the TD Five Boro Bike New York Ride, a 42-mile bicycle ride through the five boroughs of New York City. This year my training and participation in the Ride is again with the Tzu Chi Foundation and dedicated to bringing awareness for the environment (by promoting bicycle transportation, green awareness and efforts), health (exercise for good health!), and compassion (Da Ai, or great love) for all living beings, a timely theme in light of recent man-made and environmental disasters. Tzu Chi Foundation is a Buddhist Relief, 501(c) charitable organization, founded by Budhhist nun, Dharma Master Cheng Yen, in 1966. The foundation was recently  recognized by U.S. as a Champion for Change in its relief efforts in Hurricane Sandy. Tzu Chi's efforts include local and international disaster relief, educational and health initiatives, and medical relief missions. All donated funds are for direct relief and missions. Your donation is tax deductible in the United States. {Tzu Chi Foundation's Tax ID # is 94-2952782.} As some of you know, I have volunteered at Tzu Chi local free health fairs, volunteered with Tzu Chi International Medical Association's relief in Haiti earthquake, and continue the tradition of compassionate thoughts and actions. I have witnessed the benefits of dedicated compassion. Please consider supporting this effort and visiting: www.us.tzuchi.org to learn more.
