A ‘thank you’ message from our founder, Tenzin Ösel

Mar 28, 2022

Hello Everyone,

I am very happy to inform you that we are going to use the money that was fundraised for my birthday celebration to continue expanding the Global Tree Initiative (GTI).

I am so very grateful. This has been the best birthday present in my life.

The GTI is a wonderful cause. Your gift made me feel that people are supporting these projects for a great cause, and that they care and trust what we are doing. It means a lot to me.

So, I just wanted to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart. We promise absolute transparency and accountability for any situation within the GTI and Universal Clear Light (UCL).

This is a community of love, appreciation, empathy and caring. This organization is where we benefit others without expecting anything in return.

We have two new members on board, Kika and Val. We are happy and proud to introduce them to you. We are going to continue working hard for the growth of the Global Tree Initiative and to benefit our only home, our Mother Earth.

We will be expanding the Global Tree Initiative to do more activities, not just planting trees.

One Big Love
Tenzin Ösel
