Why do we ask people to give to World Peace?
Kadampa Meditation Center Houston is holding a Walk for World Peace fundraiser in April. It’s a special event to raise funds for world peace; the event benefits both contributors and the world. Every contribution – done with the intention of establishing world peace for countless living beings – creates causes for a pure world that ultimately leads to lasting peace. The more people who give, the more causes we create. That is why even $1 gifts are worth collecting. We are giving people the chance to create incredible causes for themselves and this world! We hope you will share this opportunity with the people in your life.

We recommend comfortable shoes! We will have water and of course a BBQ at the end.\n\n[/cs_content_seo][cs_element_accordion_item _id=”16″ ][cs_content_seo]What if I can’t walk far?\n\nWe will be walking 2 loops around the lake. You are welcome to walk as much as you like. Or, you can relax at our picnic pavilion and guard the food!\n\n[/cs_content_seo][cs_element_accordion_item _id=”17″ ][cs_content_seo]Do you need help?\n\nWe always do! KMC Houston is run by volunteers. There is a volunteer form below the map.\n\n[/cs_content_seo][cs_element_accordion_item _id=”18″ ][cs_content_seo]Where do we park? \n\nThe map below shows paid parking. But it is only a few dollars and quite convenient to the pavilions. You can park in free lots, but it will be quite a walk to our location!\n\n[/cs_content_seo][cs_element_accordion_item _id=”19″ ][cs_content_seo]Where do we meet?\n\nOur meeting location is the star on the map below. Check the timeline. If you aren’t arriving in time to walk, or you are going to help guard the food, go to the picnic pavilion marked on the map. We will have giant red balloons helping you find it. (Also, the map makes this are of the park look much larger than it really is!)\n\n[/cs_content_seo][cs_element_accordion_item _id=”20″ ][cs_content_seo]What does the money benefit?\n\nGreat question! The money is of direct benefit to Kadampa Meditation Center Houston. Venerable Geshe-la’s compassionate vision for the world includes an International Temple’s Project, dedicated to bringing a Temple for World Peace to every major city in the world. This fundraiser will directly fulfill the ITPs vision in Houston!\n\n[/cs_content_seo][cs_element_accordion_item _id=”21″ ][cs_content_seo]I am raising $108! Can you help me with my t-shirt size?\n\nSure, use this chart to decide on your size.\n\n[/cs_content_seo][/cs_element_accordion][/cs_element_layout_column_2][/cs_element_layout_row_2][cs_element_line _id=”22″ ][cs_element_layout_row_2 _id=”23″ ][cs_element_layout_column_2 _id=”24″ ][cs_element_text _id=”25″ ][cs_content_seo]\n\n[/cs_content_seo][/cs_element_layout_column_2][cs_element_layout_column_2 _id=”26″ ][cs_element_headline _id=”27″ ][cs_content_seo]Would you like to lend a hand?
We need volunteers!\n\n[/cs_content_seo][cs_element_text _id=”28″ ][cs_content_seo]We are going to need help to make this event successful. You can lend a hand in the days leading up to the Fundraiser or on the day of the Walk for World Peace.
We are going to need people to run errands, prepare food, setup the Walk, cook, and help us to clean.
You know the best thing might be just to take a few minutes and look at our survey. Then you can see how you could help make our Walk for World Peace a successful event!
