You may have noticed that there are no ads on the Lion’s Roar website today. Except for one, that is, about today, #GivingTuesday, and how to donate to Lion’s Roar Foundation. Here’s why.
Lion’s Roar — the site, the Foundation, and our two magazines, Buddhadharma and the Shambhala Sun — exists because of you, our readers, who understand the value of Buddhist meditation and wisdom for developing a much-needed, more compassionate world. I don’t just mean that figuratively: you invest your time and you give your financial support. Without that, there simply would be no Lion’s Roar.
As a Foundation, we can point to 30+ years of history as a sign of stability—in the media world, that’s truly rare. But we operate without the benefit of an endowment or foundation grants, on very lean budgets, and without a reserve fund. We are a stable organization—but also fragile.
So we require your support more than ever before. That’s why, this #GivingTuesday, we’re asking our many online readers to consider joining with Lion’s Roar, and investing in extending the breadth and depth of Buddhist wisdom with a donation. Whatever your ability to support, your donation will make a real difference in our mission to help bring Buddhist wisdom to all who can benefit from it. To donate, just click here.
With great appreciation,
Lion’s Roar Foundation
