While touring Melbourne, Australia, the Dalai Lama announced that he’d be donating $100k to a local charity.

The 20th Man Fund aims to eliminate homelessness in Victoria, and advocates on behalf of young people and adults who have fallen victim to poverty.

His holiness revealed the donation while giving a public talk in Melbourne, and the charity’s founder, Les Twentyman, was taken completely by surprise.

“He just said, ’I’d like to contribute to your charity. I want to make a donation of $100,000,’” Les explained. “I almost fell off the stage. People had to grab the chair and push it back. It was all in Tibetan so I didn’t understand it at first’.”

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
