President's Editorial

From the President’s Desk By Nancy Secrest

On behalf of the TOS and its board of directors, I extend heartfelt thanks to all of you who responded to our annual fund appeal with your donations and your good wishes. We raised $12,214 in general donations for the work of the TOS. In addition, we received $2,250 designated for specific TOS programs.

This year we again met our $20,000 goal in donations earmarked for the Golden Link College. The funds for the school will be matched by a very generous $20,000 matching grant provided by the Kern Foundation.

We think of the Theosophical Society as being dedicated to study, meditation and service. The Theosophical Order of Service is the service arm of the Theosophical Society. The motto of the TOS is – A union of those who love in the service of all that suffers. The TOS operates nationally in many TS countries. The national TOS groups then work together internationally. So that the warm hearts and helping hands of theosophists circle the globe.

Helping Haiti

In the face of the recent tragic earthquake in Haiti we have received many requests for information about where people can make contributions of money or time. The TOS has not been directly working in Haiti and so we do not have specific organizations with which we are familiar. Up to this point we have chosen to recommend sending donations to a few accredited organizations (see list below).
