Homelessness, will receive $51k from His Holiness the Dalai Lama today
San Diego’s Monarch School, which offers education to children impacted by homelessness, will receive $51k from His Holiness the Dalai Lama today. The money comes from surplus funds raised during His Holiness’s April 2012 visit to the city, an event that nearly 20,000 people attended.
Erin Spiewak, Chief Executive Officer of the Monarch School, said, “This generous contribution allows Monarch to continue to support our students’ growth and learning with the intention that they will follow in the example of significant leaders such as His Holiness.”
Venerable Lama Tenzin Dhonden, Peace Emissary for His Holiness, will be speaking on behalf of the Dalai Lama during the gift-giving ceremony.
