Supporting and sustaining Positive Change
The Mt Shasta Goddess Temple hosts fundraisers each season to help local, national, and international nonprofit organizations support their communities and achieve their goals. We are especially interested in helping groups and agencies with missions related to the environment and animal welfare, the preservation and propagation of indigenous religion and culture, female and child welfare, and worker’s rights.
On pilgrimage in Tibet in 2014, Priestess Yeshe witnessed how her group’s tour guide quietly purchased a meal for an elderly indigent woman and sat with her while she ate. When she mentioned to the young man how kind his actions had been, he replied simply, with clarity and conviction, “It is my duty.”
Fast-forward to 2019, when Yeshe was speaking about the Mt Shasta Goddess Temple’s fundraiser for the Winnemem Wintu Tribe at the Goddess Temple of Orange County in Irvine, CA. After the event, a woman walked up and handed Yeshe a $1000 check to pass along to the Tribe. When Yeshe thanked the donor for her generosity, she replied with a smile, “It is my duty.”
This is the motivation of the fundraising efforts of the Mt Shasta Goddess Temple to benefit the greater good: it is our duty. Please sign up for our newsletter below to keep abreast of our latest community care endeavors, and please consider supporting our fundraisers with an offering.
