Thanks to the generosity
of alumni from around the world, UMAA's initial goal of $5,000
for the Konnichian Restoration Fund has been met! We are proud
to be part of such an amazing community of tea people.
Now, with slightly less than
one month left before the donation is to be offered to Oiemoto
sama and Daisosho sama, UMAA would like to propose an even more
ambitious goal in support of this historic undertaking: let's
double the gift and aim to offer $10,000.
Some board members have pledged
Matching Funds for donations made by February 15th! That means
your gift could be doubled to meet this new goal. The Matching
Fund pledge is intended to encourage small donations. Donations
under $100 will be matched up to $1,000.
The history of Urasenke is
embodied in the tearooms that make up Konnichian. What an incredible
opportunity to join in taking care of this place where our tea
Donor names [without amounts]
will accompany the offering: let's try to make that list as long
as possible. Every gift helps.
You can donate through the
PayPal button below.
Thank you for your devotion
to the Urasenke Tradition of Chanoyu.
