Celebrate #GivingTuesday - a global day of giving - by helping Meher Mount raise $15,000 in the month of December.
#GIVING TUESDAY KICKS OFF the SEASON OF CHARITABLE GIVING
#GIVING TUESDAY IS #TOUCHSTONE TUESDAY FOR MEHER MOUNT
Your #GivingTuesday donation — and all donations through the end of December — support the care, preservation and ongoing operations at Meher Mount that keep Meher Baba’s touchstones accessible to all.
Avatar Meher Baba sanctified Meher Mount with His presence when He visited on August 2, 1956. Upon His arrival, Meher Baba said, “I love Meher Mount very much and feel happy here.”
With His visit, Meher Baba left an invisible fountain of spiritual energy that touches all who visit. His touchstones are a connection to that visit.
MEHER BABA’S TOUCHSTONES
Baba’s Tree sits at the brow of Avatar’s Point overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Damaged in the 2017 Thomas Fire, the tree remains in seclusion while it recovers. Still, “Baba’s Tree is as powerful as ever,” said a recent visitor.
Your donation supports the ongoing care and protection of Baba’s Tree.
Baba’s Fireplace was part of the guesthouse where Meher Baba gave darshan to His followers in 1956. The building was destroyed by fire in 1985, but the fireplace remains as a touchstone of His visit.
Your donation supports sharing Meher Baba’s life and words with visitors through these touchstones.
Baba’s Walkway, the original sandstone path leading to Baba’s Fireplace, has been buried for 30 years. Your donation supports the ongoing work to uncover and preserve this walkway.
Baba’s Path is the footpath used by Meher Baba as he strode across the meadow to Baba’s Tree. In photos you see His followers hurrying to keep up. Baba’s Path is kept mowed so that today’s visitors can walk in His footsteps. Your donation supports that upkeep.
All of these efforts require resources — that’s why your contribution is so vital to the legacy of the Avatar’s Presence at Meher Mount and preserving Meher Mount as a place of universal pilgrimage, now and in the future.
WHAT IS #GIVING TUESDAY?
First, there was Black Friday, the retail shopping day following Thanksgiving. Then, there was Cyber Monday, the online shopping day following Black Friday.
Now there is #GivingTuesday™, a global day of giving following Thanksgiving, to celebrate and to encourage charitable donations to support non-profit organizations. Meher Mount is celebrating #GivingTuesday all during the month of December 2018.
For Meher Mount, the hashtag #TouchstoneTuesday is a reminder that your donations support Meher Mount as a universal place of pilgrimage dedicated to Meher Baba and the touchstones that are a physical connection to His presence.
