What is GivingTuesday?
It’s an international day of generosity happening on November 30, 2021.
GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past 9 years, this idea has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
Donate to the Global Tree Initiative this GivingTuesday (November 30) and join in a global generosity movement.
Remember that you can also donate through our website: HERE

As an infant, Spanish-born Tenzin Ösel was recognized by the Dalai Lama as the reincarnation of the Tibetan master, Lama Yeshe.
Since leaving monastic life at 18 – he’s now 35 – Ösel has been traveling the world, fulfilling his yearning to transmit ancient wisdom in a 21st-century style, through music, art, film, and communication – so that we can heal the planet and help each other.
“We are bombarded by distractions, and it’s part of the design of the system – we always need to be doing something so that we don’t understand who we are, the mechanics, the science of our mind.”
“If you’re humble, you wouldn’t let the negative destructive emotions come in. For example, if you’re humble, you would never get angry.”
“We can learn about ourselves by observing the outside world, and every moment is an opportunity to learn.”
“How we learn to love ourselves is by appreciating who we are, by understanding our potential, what we can do, the power of who we are, how far we can go.”
“If we had compassion for ourselves, we would have compassion for everybody else.”
“Everything around us has been started and created by the mind. It all started as a thought. That’s how powerful thoughts are. So, that’s why to be aware of our thoughts, to be in control of our thoughts, is so important.”
“I don’t want to create followers, I want to create leaders.”
“You possess the path within yourself.”
“Your well-being will be linked to the universe, linked to karma and linked to human mind.”
“The more you think about yourself, the more you are going to suffer. If you think about the person next to you more than yourself, all you have is happiness.”
“With each step, each thought, we are creating a whole new universe. Look into someone’s eyes and behold the window to their soul, the galaxy, the universe. That is us, that is you, that is me.”
“Every moment is magic, and we are all living the same moment! We are all connected. Thank you for being who YOU are! One Love.”
