• What Does Helping Others Mean to You?

    The TOS wants to know “What does helping others mean to you?” Not your definition, but why do you help others? What makes you volunteer? How has it changed your life?

    We are hoping to collect videos of people answering these questions. But if you feel shy about being on a video (camera phones are great and easy…hint hint!), we welcome you to send us an audio recording of what helping others means to you. If you send us either a video or audio, please also send us permission to use it as part of our outreach. We are intending to put together various clips as an introduction to the TOS to be used in lodges and study groups.

    We thank you in advance!

  • The Dangers of Plastic

    Members of the Salt Lake City Theosophical Society displayed the devastating effect of plastic pollution on the oceans, animal life, and humanity at the University of Utah. Members set up a massive display and spent hours talking to community member of all ages. According to one man, the display provided “a profound, realistic picture that forces us to look at our choices, and the consequences of that choice.”

Donate to the Golden Link College

Donate $20 or more to the Golden Link College. Here’s Why:

Since its inception fifteen years ago, the Golden Link College (GLC) has provided quality education to disadvantaged children. In an environment that encourages theosophical principles such as no discrimination of any kind, peace, harmony, compassion, and a sense of well-being, children (and the adults who teach the children and work at the school) become “socially responsible, morally upright, and spiritually sensitive individuals.” These are qualities many children do not receive in regular educational settings which is what makes the Golden Link College such a rare gem. GLC is theosophy in action. Read more about Donate to the Golden Link College

Boots on the Ground

As many people know, when a donation is made to the Theosophical Order of Service, 100% of your donation goes toward the cause or project you have chosen. This is because the TOS works as an All-Volunteer Organization (AVO) and while this may not seem like anything consequential, in fact it is. Today, very few organizations are able to put 100% of your donated dollars toward its designated purpose. In many organizations, charitable dollars are used to help with the administrative costs.

TOS Campaign for Kindness

Please join in the TOS Campaign for Kindness taking place throughout October, 2017. 

Here’s how it works

The entire month of October, 2017 becomes a canvas for your acts of kindness, large or small.  You can structure it any way you like. 

  • Perhaps you join in a community project on one day in October.  Find one by clicking here.
  • Perhaps you devote a week to carrying a bag on your daily walk, picking up at least one piece of litter per day.  Or maybe it's seven pieces per day--whatever is comfortable for you. 
  • Maybe you commit to one act of kindness each day during October, even if it's just making eye contact and smiling at someone, holding the elevator, letting a driver into your lane, sending a comforting thought, etc.
  • Maybe some of your family members or co-workers would like to join you in performing acts of kindness.
