Here’s a great story from the Vancouver Courier about the Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation…
“From a nondescript office in Marpole, the Vancouver chapter of Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation has, since 1992, run diverse programs that see teams of uniformed volunteers cooking food at the Salvation Army in the Downtown Eastside, visiting seniors’ homes, and distributing blankets, towels, soap, socks and gloves to the homeless.
” Chapters throughout the Lower Mainland send volunteers to sort trash from recycling after major community festivals such as the Festival of Lights. A Tzu Chi TV station in Asia is 50 per cent funded by recycling newspapers and bottles.”
