Friends, It’s been six weeks since I launched the Great Rabbit Liberation of 2016 CrowdRise and so much has happened since then. Firstly, a See More

THE STORY:

I have taken on an unexpected project this summer. You see, I have in my care a herd of 135 rabbits! When a farmer in the town where I live decided to exit the business of raising rabbits for meat, we reached an agreement where he relinquished them to me. It was a very joyous moment for a variety of reasons, but especially because one of my personal practices is "animal liberation.” Animal Liberation is a Buddhist practice where one saves the life of an animal that is destined for slaughter, gives the animal Buddhist blessings, and provides an environment that extends their life. The day the farmer and the Board of Directors of the farm began our discussions was July 6, His Holiness the Dalai Lama's birthday. I was very clear in my heart that whatever way I could help these furry sentient beings, especially, if I were able to have them "pardoned" from their fate on the farm, then I would do it. And every day I dedicate all my efforts in my heart to the Long Life of His Holiness the Dalai and Lama Zopa Rinpoche, the two Buddhist masters who have been my primary guiding lights for the past 30 years of my life. I need help, please. Financially there are many expenses that need to be covered: - neuters and spays for all the rabbits - high quality food and supplies for enriched environments - financial support to the foster guardians, especially those who have taken multiple rabbits - offerings I want to make to the incredible organizations that have been giving me all their support such as House Rabbit Network, St. Hubert's Animal Welfare, Sweet Binks Rabbit Shelter, and others. Stay in touch by liking the Facebook page: The Great Rabbit Pardon of 2016. Thank you. And in particular, I am indebted to the farmer and the farm, who have given me this opportunity and with whom I have been working collaboratively. May all beings be happy.
