Jai Jinendra <<First Name>>,
On behalf of YJA, I hope you had a healthful and relaxing Thanksgiving Holiday. I wanted to remind you that today is Giving Tuesday
! On this day of giving, we hope you'll donate
to support YJA programs.
We do these events for you, our members, and we want to make sure you get the most of out them! No amount is too small, and your support also pays it forward for future generations of YJA members to have experiences as meaningful as yours.
Here are some of YJA's initiatives that your donation helps support:
Regional retreats that serve as mini-conventions for people to share ideas, make new friends, and discuss Jain values.
Online pathshala classes to provide those at smaller centers and busy students the opportunity to engage with Jainism and discuss the philosophy and values - from home!
College chapters that allow students to continue their involvement and Jain learning in a new environment, and to meet Jain youth from all over the country at their schools.
And lastly, our new integrative website and mobile app that will allow youth engagement and conversation to happen across multiple platforms.
We can't do this without you.
So please, this #GivingTuesday, donate to YJA at www.yja.org/givingtuesday
or by making a check payable to "Federation of Jain Associations in North America" and mailing it to:
Young Jains of America
