The Door Openers
A team for KUNZANG ODSAL PALYUL CHANGCHUB
"The Door Openers" a team to help the Kunzang Odsal Palyul Changchub Choling (KPC) Buddhist Temple re-open to the Public
Since 1985, KPC has been a sacred space open 24 hours a day for people of all faiths to pray and meditate.
Until March 1, 2013, when the Temple was closed to the public until zoning and permitting requirements are met for Montgomery County.
This shut down our food bank and any community gatherings inside the building. Our gift shop, which was a significant fundraiser for ongoing expenses, has been closed. Our community events have been held outside in tents in all weather conditions.
So far, we have raised enough funds to get our prayer room re-opened which is a big step in the right direction! However, it is only 1000 sq ft of our over 10,000 square foot building.
Now, we have formed the team, The Door Openers, with a goal to raise $25,000 in 24 hours during #GivingTuesday for the next stage of our renovation.
Please join us for this auspicious day!
