My story

[p]To celebrate turning 60 this year, I've set myself a huge challenge - to walk 400 miles in 34 days from Port Isaac to Portland. It's exciting, exhilarating and scary, and it is also an opportunity to raise a huge amount of money for 5 charities that mean a lot to me—which includes Tibet Relief Fund. Most of all, it gives me the chance to share this adventure with friends, family, people I've worked with over the last 14 years and make new friends along the way. If you can, please come and join me for 1 or more days walking. For more information on the walks, the meditation locations, to watch my progress on the 'tracker map', please see [url=https://www.jenniebayliss.com/walk/ ]www.jenniebayliss.com/walk/[/url] (Note: this website is not active until 28th Feb 2018)[/p][p][b][i]You can also receive a handwritten postcard from me whilst I'm on the walk—see below.[/i][/b][/p][p]My interest in Tibet began with 2 books. The first was [i]The Art of Happiness—A Handbook for Living[/i] by the Dalai Lama and Howard Cutter. After reading it, I found out more about the Dalai Lama and, a few years ago, I saw him at the Royal Albert Hall. His talk was inspiring—encouraging us all to find compassion, peace and happiness. But what caught me by surprise—then and now—is his capacity for joy that just beams out of him. In learning more about his life and teachings, I discovered part of the story of Tibet, of his exile and that of 100,000 Tibetans who fled from their homeland after the failed uprising to take back their country from Chinese occupation.[/p][p][i]The Book of Tibetan Medicine[/i] by Ralph Quinlan Forde also piqued my interest. Tibetan medicine, like Ayurveda, has been practised for over 1,000 years and has a unique understanding of both the cause and nature of disease. It would be the greatest shame that this wisdom was lost due to what is happening today in Tibet.[/p][p]The Tibet Relief Fund is a charity that helps fund schools, hospitals, skills training as well as preserving Tibetan culture. They work with the exiled communities as well as Tibetans living in isolated, rural areas of Tibet. They sponsor 5,000 monks, nuns, children and elderly Tibetans. They also respond to emergencies and promote self-sufficiency so the Tibetan communities can create a positive future. [/p][p]Today, please donate as much as you can. Even if you can only give a little, it is all appreciated. Let your friends and family know and let's make a BIG difference to children and adults in need in Tibet.[/p][p][b]£6 [/b]provides a week's fuel for an elderly Tibetan refugee over winter.[/p][p][b]£12[/b] provides an elderly Tibetan refugee with staple foods for a month.[/p][p][b]£25[/b] helps to fund a physiotherapist for disabled Tibetan children in northern India[/p][p][b]£60[/b] helps provide life-saving emergency aid for a new mother in a remote area of Tibet[/p][p]*********[/p][p][b]RECEIVE A POSTCARD FROM ME...[/b][/p][p]If you are able to donate £25 (or more), I will send you a handwritten postcard whilst I'm walking—letting you know where I am and how I am doing. If you would like a postcard from me, I please [url=http://mailto:jennie@jenniebayliss.com/]email me[/url] your postal address. Your details will be used for sending this postcard only. They will not be kept or used for anything else.[/p][p][br][/p]
