We The Future 2016: Lhagang Orphanage, Tibet
Our 2016 initiate focus is on raising funds to better the future of Tibetan school children and orphans living in poverty.
Read more about this initiative and how you can get involved below:
In July I will be traveling to the "Lonely Planet" known as Tibet, and I invite you to come along with me in spirit!
Our first We The Future initiative will provide aid to orphans at the Lhagang Orphanage in Tibet and so desperately need our support and love.
As many of you may know, the Tibetan people have struggled immensely to perverse their culture, religion, and way of life under the control of the Chinese government. In 1950 China occupied, and eventually took over Tibet in an extremely tragic and violent manner. His Holiness The Dalai Lama was forced to flee his homeland and has lived in exile in Dharamsala, India ever since.
Today, the peaceful people of Tibet still struggle in poverty to keep their culture alive and survive under harsh conditions amongst political and cultural turmoil. Their faith keeps hope alive, but we can help too. We can help by donating funds for education to the young children of Tibet, building up the future generation of Tibetans.
In donating to the children of Tibet, we are doing our part in building up the next generation, providing them with the tools to thrive and survive.
I appreciate any funds you have to contribute to this initiative, even $1 or $5 will help immensely!!!
I will present the funds to the orphanage in person on behalf of us ALL in July 2016! Along with a card with each of your names listed so the kids know the names of each and every one of you!!!!!!!
Email WeTheFuture@GiannaContillo.com to exchange contact information so I can keep you updated along my journey and send you photos of this incredible day in July with the children!
You are incredible and greatly appreciated!
What is We The Future?
We the people are the future, and future depends on us. We The Future is a new and upcoming organization committed to engaging in actions that will serve greater good of humanity today, tomorrow, and for the future generations to come.
It is our goal to ensure peace, health, happiness, and opportunity through youth engagement programs and both domestic and global service based campaigns and initiatives.
We feel the most valuable way to change the world is to build up the future leaders of the world, young people. Our programs and initiatives focus on personal, professional, and civic development. Our goal is to provide the tools for individuals to live up to their full potential and thrive as successful healthy professionals and change makers.
We The Future plans to focus on the following to achieve our goals:
Campaigns & Initiates: We The Future runs a handful of campaigns, initiatives, and fundraisers to better the future of individuals abroad and home here in the United States. Check out our 2016 Tibet Initiative!
Personal Development & Wellbeing: We believe that health is a right for all individuals. We are committed to providing educational tools and workshops that will engender a sense of health, wellbeing, and inner peace for all through health education, yoga, meditation, mindfulness, and personal development activities and programs. (Toolkits, prorgams, and camps coming in 2017!)
Mentorship: We The Future is working to provide mentorship to young people all over the country. We seek to provide young people with the tools to grow personally and professionally with the support of a mentor to guide them along the path to their goals. ***Funding is in the works for our very first New England Youth Mentorship initiative in 2017, if you would like to get involved or sponsor our mentorship program as a donor please contact WeTheFuture@GiannaContillo.com!
