Some of you have a connection with Shibata Sensei.
As you may know Sensei’s health has become increasingly challenged and endangered of late. His wife Carolyn Kanjuro posted a note on Sangha Announce a few weeks ago about the status of his health. While his physical fragility has increased, his support system has been eroded by three large kyudo groups withdrawing financial support from his ongoing income.
Would you like to join me in establishing a monthly ongoing donation to his support? If a monthly ongoing donation is not possible, perhaps you can offer a one-time gift of any denomination.
I have just set up for myself a recurring payment on the Zenko website through Paypal—it was so easy. If you do this, Zenko will send an email that serves as a tax-deductible receipt for the donation year. Go to zenkoiba.org and follow the links to the donate page—it’s self explanatory.
Thank you for your generosity—I have no doubt Sensei will be moved by any gesture made. And let’s hope his health will rise to an increasingly positive level as the months ahead unfold.
Please distribute this note to anyone else you feel might be interested in helping.
