Angels In Training Give $1,000 to Sakya Care Foundation
On February 24, 2019, for the second year in a row, students, parents, and faculty members of the Vietnamese program at Linh Son Buddhist Temple in Austin met with UAN representatives to collect donations and to celebrate another successful Angels in Training fundraising campaign.
UAN's Angels in Training program provides children with an opportunity to practice compassion and to witness how joining together for a good cause can improve the lives of others, as well as our own. As a result of their kindness and collective efforts, the Linh Son "Angels in Training" were able to raise $1,000 for the benefit of our partner, Sakya Care Foundation.
After emptying donations into the giant Angel Bank, everyone celebrated with delicious snacks provided by UAN.
After the final count was tallied, UAN presented a $1,000 check to Sakya Care Foundation President, Dr. Jowan Do.
It was an inspiring day. Attendees saw evidence of how seeds of compassion sown in the children's hearts are blossoming into acts of generosity. It truly does take a village. UAN is grateful for our partners at Linh Son Temple's Vietnamese Language Program and Sakya Care Foundation. We look forward to future collaborations that help build upon the work so far. Together, we can help create a more kind and compassionate community.
Special thanks to UAN Director of Education, Ha Phan, Ph.D. who coordinates our Angels in Training activities at Linh Son Temple.
