From Tibetan Volunteers for Animals
Dear Compassionate Friends,
The past few years have been remarkable for TVA and its Vegetarian Campaigns as we continue to grow and expand our reach. As this letter was being written it was amazing to realize how much we have grown and accomplished in the past few years.
To add a step further, recently we opened our first branch office in Dharamsala, North India. We would like you to know how thankful we are for your continued patronage and support without which we wouldn't have made it this far.
As the countdown to the Beijing Olympics 2008 has begun, it marks the beginning of a very crucial time for the Tibetan people and our freedom struggle. Considering the importance of this crucial time, 'Tibetan Volunteers for Animals' will maintain a low profile this year to rule out any possibility of distraction, leaving no room for division of attention and strength of the community. This would mean lesser publicity of our works (very few Newsletters and other deliberate publicities). This move is also being made to express our solidarity with the on going Tibetan Freedom struggle, for we being a Tibetan organization.
Never the less, we will continue our work and there won't be even a possibility of change in our commitment towards making a difference in the lives of suffering animals. 56 billion animals are slaughtered each year to appease our appetite. The world is getting drenched with insanity and ignorance. At such times, we feel it is very important to take initiatives and responsibilities to liberate these poor creatures or else otherwise at least lessen their sufferings because the suffering these animals undergo every day, every minute, every second is beyond our conscious ability to ignore.
