All is One, Shining in God's Presence.

May the promise and compassion of Christmas
whisper "Peace to you!" throughout the year.

With gratitude and blessing,
from all of us at the Christine Center.

Many Thanks for Your Support on #GivingTuesday, November 29th
After all the Thanksgiving festivities were over, we had another celebration, #GivingTuesday, the international day of giving to non-profits that enrich our lives every day of the year. This was our second year celebrating #GivingTuesday and many of you celebrated with us. Through your donations and by sharing our message with your circle of friends via email and Facebook, you helped to make this a successful event for the Christine Center. Please accept our heartfelt gratitude for all of your support.

And if you missed #GivingTuesday, no worries! There's still time. Here is the link to our #GivingTuesday page. 

Wouldn't it Be Nice to Give Back While You Shop this Christmas Season? Many of us do quite a bit of shopping online during the holidays, but did you know you can give back while you shop? A simple way to do this is to sign up for AmazonSmile. When you shop with AmazonSmile, you designate the Christine Center (or another non-profit you love) as the organization you'd like to support. A portion of your purchase will be donated to help support the center's mission of Spiritual Deepening for Global Transformation. 

Wishing you Peace and Joy this Christmas Season,
Ann Swanson
Fund Development Coordinator
