Fundraising Needs for the Centre

Dear family,

We are in need of your loving support of the Centre’s charitable work. In addition to much-needed fundraising for the earthquake re-building work, we need your help to meet operational expenses. Please will you help? We need your support so that the Centre can to continue to provide a peaceful, loving haven for you and for all who come.

Donations can be given in full or a partial amount. New items will be added as needs crop up, so please keep checking in. Please could you also keep the Centre in your prayers. It is going to be an adventurous year!

Thank you as always for your love and support.

Joyfully in Service,

Christinaseva & Paulpremanda

I used to give small donations to many charities. Now I feel that any money I have to donate will be put to best use by the Centre. Being guided by the highest possible motives, I know that the family will use my donations with absolute integrity and it will go to where it is needed most.

I feel such joy and gratitude to have the opportunity to give to such a unique and special Centre, whose loving work by the many wonderful volunteers, have given so much to me and others in need. As I have opened my heart and looked beyond my own family’s needs, giving regularly in a financial way to the Centre, the more the abundance in my own life has expanded.

The Centre practices Pure Meditation which is the ultimate means of bringing Peace to individuals and eventually spreading out to all. When I spend time at the Centre I see this Peace present in the family that work here. It’s effect is truly wonderful and I want it for myself and for others. I don’t make these comments based on things I read or am told. I see it for myself.

I am constantly provided with more than I and my children need to live a joyful and fulfilling life and this has the wonderful upwards cycle of allowing me to share more. By sharing more of my financial blessings my own sense of well-being, gratitude and faith that we are always taken care, has deepened.
~ NM

Over time I have realised that the Centre family and those of us who use its services are pioneers.  When I look back to Christchurch City’s pioneers in 1850, they could only have built community facilities like Hagley Park via donations. I want to make a similar commitment to rebuild and enhance our Centre. I feel good thinking that others will be able to get the help in the future that I have received today, through the donations I give.
~ MC

I share the financial blessings in my life as well as my love, energy and time because I know of no other organisation or charity that is doing more to heal the real needs of people in the world.
~ NM

I know that the Centre is in dire need of as much help as possible (monetary and time-wise) as it can get at the moment. Christchurch needs this Centre here. Because of earthquake damage it needs to be rebuilt. The Centre needs the contributions from those who have experienced for themselves the benefit of what the Centre gives out so freely –  Unconditional Love and Light to the World.
~ PD

It’s my own small legacy to contribute to and support what I most love and value for myself and others in the world. I could not live a truly happy life in this crazy, topsy-turvy world without the safe harbour of my spiritual home, the Self Realization Meditation Healing Centre.

The Centre is in need of a quality vacuum cleaner. With all the vacuuming needed each week, we have found that the cheaper ones really don’t last, and cost more in the long run. We would like your help to invest in a quality machine that is quieter, has a good air filter, and very importantly, will last years and years. Please will you help?

Last but not least! It is that time of year again, where out of necessity we need to renew our insurance policy. While not the most romantic thing to donate towards, it surely is blessed, perhaps even more so for this reason! The bill is even higher this year than in years past. Please can we ask for your help and support with this?

We are happy to report that we have outgrown our old office and have moved into the Kowhai Room. At last we have the space we need. We discovered a problem, though! The light coming into the office was wreaking havoc on our eyes and making it difficult to see the screens. A volunteer suggested roller blinds. They are ideal for the task and have made a world of difference. Please will you help?

We love to honor the sacred times of Easter and Christmas with a special flower display. As fresh flowers were costing $100 for each Satsanga, to help save money, the Centre bought some artificial flowers. However, these still need to be supplemented with either fresh flowers or additional artificial flowers. Please will you help?

The tree surgeon said ‘it couldn’t be done’ without the expense and aid of a stump grinding machine. However, he hasn’t met David! Several trees in the front garden, most of which had self-sown, had become overgrown, leggy and unattractive. These have been removed (visit our recent blog post for the work in action) leaving a gaping hole. Similar work is needed around the front/pool gardens and we are raising funds for the replanting.  Please will you help?

We have been blessed to have a volunteer over the last couple of years who was able to rescue from her work bedding plants that would otherwise have ended up at the tip. However, she has moved onwards and upwards and we are now back to needing to raise funds for planting for colour in time for the Easter Celebrations. Please will you help?

Our annual subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud is soon due. We use the applications that come with this package to help us with all of our outreach and promotional work including nearly every aspect of our website design as well as facebook posts, posters, videos, and more. It is good that as an educational organization our subscription is 40% off the normal fee, but at $595, it is still a large expense for the Centre. Please will you help?
