Thank you for your generosity, Venerable Robina Courtin!

Recently, our Global Tree Initiative (GTI) director, Jacie Keeley, met with a long-time friend, Ven. Robina.

Ven. Robina’s organization, The Bodhicitta Trust, is one of the GTI’s generous partners and supporters. The Bodhicitta Trust contributes to the GTI financially, sponsors various activities of the GTI, including IT expenses, and more.

Thank you very much for believing in the GTI and for helping us grow, Ven. Robina! We wholeheartedly appreciate what you are doing for us.

Have a look at this short clip to see how passionate Ven. Robina is about trees!

Remember to watch her inspiring documentary, Chasing Buddha!

For more information on Ven. Robina’s teachings and tours, please visit her website.

You, too, can follow in the inspiring, generous footsteps of Ven. Robina by giving to the GTI. Please, help the Global Tree Initiative grow just as Venerable Robina does.
You can make your donation here.

We would love to hear why you believe in the GTI!

Please share this. Thank you!
