JSNT President Letter for Mahavir Jayanti Celebrations
April 2nd is an auspicious day of Mahavir Jayanti - an inspiration to continue our spiritual journey!
We will celebrate Mahavir Jayanti on Sunday, April 12th, 2015 starting at 10am. Pathshala students, teachers, parents as well as volunteer committees are working hard to make it a very memorable event.
With generous support of members like you, we are able to help meet everyone’s spiritual needs, celebrate Mahavir Jayanti, Paryushan & Das Laxana, and Diwali, work towards a brighter future for our kids with Pathshala classes, Senior forum, Dignitary visits, cultural activities, health fair, etc.
The estimated annual expenses to support these activities is high and the ONLY source of income is everyone’s financial contributions. We request your pledges only two times a year – Mahavir Jayanti & Diwali. At a minimum, if we keep a goal of $1 a day per each family member to invest in our future, we will reach over 100% of our annual needs and we will focus on growing our center to meet everyone's needs. But this is possible ONLY if everyone contributes to this noble goal.
Last year’s Mahavir Jayanti program (pledge) was the most successful ever – more than 100 families donated and helped raise for JSNT.
We request you to take this opportunity to contribute online via credit card by visiting our Web Site at http://www.dfwjains.org/donation .
We hope you can join Mahavir Jayanti celebration on Sunday, April 12 and encourage Pathshala students/teachers for their contributions.
If you have any question, do not hesitate to call me or any board member.
