Dear Supporters and Donors,

First and foremost, we hope you and your loved ones are all staying well through these uncertain and challenging times. Your generosity goes a long way to support those who are in dire need. Angela and I, and our hard working Executive, greatly appreciate your generosity which goes a long way to support those who are in dire need through our many projects.

Due to the continued COVID situation, the Ottawa Friends of Tibet will again this year have an online event to meet our fundraising goal for 2022. We always look forward to seeing the faces of our supporters, donors and friends and feel great sadness not to be able to get together again this year.

This year, we are organizing a 2-part Fundraising Campaign to raise $18,000:

1. Fundraising campaign through DONATIONS
2. Fundraising via an ONLINE SILENT AUCTION

1. Fundraising Campaign through DONATIONS from October 11 to November 15

We would greatly appreciate your continued support through your kind donations so that we may continue our various programs in these difficult financial times. We hope you might consider a donation instead of your usual ticket purchase ($75). OFT will issue a tax receipt for the full amount of your donation.

You can donate in any of the following ways:

  • By cheque: To receive a tax receipt, please include your email, name and mailing address.
    Cheque payable to The Ottawa Friends of Tibet
    400 Piccadilly Ave. North
    Ottawa, Ontario
    K1Y 0H4
  • PayPal/credit card: Click the "Donate" button below. To receive a tax receipt, please include your email, name and mailing address.
     
  • e-transfer to oft@oft.ca: In order to receive a tax receipt, please email us at oft@oft.ca with your name and mailing address.

(In January, OFT will issue a tax receipt in the donor's name and mailing address via the email address provided for donations of $20 and above).


2. Fundraising via an online SILENT AUCTION from November 1 at 10am until November 14 at 10pm - CLOSED

Again this year, we have exciting items, both Tibetan and Japanese, which were available on the 32Auctions bidding platform at: https://www.32auctions.com/OttawaFriendsofTibet


We hope all of you are in good health and high spirits. The pandemic has given all of us a great lesson on what we need vs what we want. There are so many times when we have depended on the kindness of our own communities or the kindness of strangers. This is the perfect opportunity for us to pay it forward. Each and every one of us can do our best. The most important thing is by helping one another, it is the best way to create a proper human society.

We are most grateful for your continuing generosity.

Tashi Delek and looking forward to hopefully seeing you soon.

Jurme and Angela Wangda and the OFT Executive committee
