A person visited a Buddhist monastery. Everyone there was half clad with a single piece of cloth that signified purity of soul over worldly desires. Money had absolutely no place in it and monks did not have pocket in their dresses even to keep lose change. After the tour was over, he went to the souvenir kiosk and bought a statue of Buddha. The monk shopkeeper was pleased and explained the virtue of Buddha while delivering the item. The man gave credit card to pay for it.

The monk said, sir we accept only money nothing else. The man was totally stunned at the monk’s sudden swing from his spiritual mode to the ‘worldly wise’.

BB is right, nothing works without financial resources. As a suggestion, why not create an online ‘Contribution/Support/Donation’ button on the website. This would facilitate contribution in an easy way whatever people could afford from time to time.
