An Invitation to Get Involved
Would you like to get involved? We want to create connections with Mitras and Order members and your local Triratna Centre or Group. Become a ‘Just Ask, Just Give’ representative, and help make a practical difference to Triratna Buddhist Order members in need.
‘Just Ask’ Representative
A ‘Just Ask’ representative is the bridge between local Order members and the Abhayaratna Trust. As someone involved with the local Sangha you may be aware of Order members in financial difficulties or, if an Order member would like to make an application to the Abhayaratna Trust, then you might be involved in encouraging them to do so.
Ideally you would help to share what we do with local Order members through giving our leaflets to chapters, once or twice a year, or perhaps giving a short presentation at a regional Order event. If you are an Order member and like the sound of being an Abhayaratna Trust ‘Just Ask’ Representative then please get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
‘Just Give’ Representative
An Abhayaratna Trust ‘Just Give’ representative is someone who helps create a link between the Abhayaratna Trust and local centres, and who we can coordinate with if for example we have a new fundraising initiative. You wouldn’t have to be involved directly in fundraising,but as a local contact we would love to let you know what we are doing to support the Order and encourage people at your local Sangha to get involved. You might for example put up a poster in your local centre and giving out leaflets to your chapter/GFR group/study group. If you are a Mitra or Order member who would like to help us create connections with your local Sangha, then please get in touch: mail to: email@example.com
Other ways to get involved
Are you an artist, a dancer, a comedian, a rock-and-roll star in the making? Could you organise a film night, a bake sale, a quiz night, a tea party or a knit-a-thon? Rummage around in your creative store and see what you can offer! If you can see yourself running a fundraising event for The Abhayaratna Trust then please get in touch: mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Need some inspiration? Ratnadhya made a welcome donation from the proceeds of his show ‘A Meeting of Minds’, performed at the West London Buddhist Centre.
