Would like to gift these gift subscriptions

Postby zamis » Sun Jan 04, 2009 8:50 pm

I was given three subscriptions through the wonderful kindness of someone and would like to find someone who would like to receive them after I've read them. The subscriptions are to: Tricycle, BuddhaDharma, and Inquiring Mind. Since this forum is still relatively new/ small, I'll wait a few weeks before asking elsewhere.

One suggestion: Donate them to prisoners. Most Buddhist prisoners (or those interested in Buddhism) have few resources and love to receive any type of Buddhist material and voraciously go through anything you give them. They are also very appreciative of anything you give them.

Here is a link where you can find some prisoners and their addresses:

Thank you for the link. I will check into that if no one replies.

David's suggestion is a good one...the people you're waiting on to reply have the liberty, and the means, to acquire subscriptions if they so choose...people locked up don't...the benefit factor is significant...

Be well... ;)

Hello Appicchato Bhikkhu,

Yes, David's advice is very good. Thank you for repeating it for me to listen again. If no one minds then, I will repriortize and check out the link first.

But let me be honest. Not all of us out here on liberty have the means.
