Due to the enormous generosity and outpouring of support from many of you - of Halau and Sangha members, of your friends and family, we have reached and exceeded our goal of raising $150,000 to be used for the purchase of our new home. Remarkably, we raised this in just 10 weeks time.
Unfortunately, despite our good faith efforts, the deal on the property fell through at the last moment. Many of us are saddened by this development but we will continue to trust in the dharma and begin again. We have identified a realtor and have begun the process of looking for another property to purchase.
We want to assure everyone that the money you have given us will be kept in a restricted account only to be used for the purchase of a property that will become our new Halau and Zen Center home.
Thank you again for your kind and generous support of our Halau i Ka Pono and the Zen Life & Meditation Center, Chicago.
