On August 24, 2014, a 6.0 magnitude earthquake, the strongest in 25 years, rocked the city of Napa, California, USA, resulting in about 200 injuries, the destruction of at least six homes, and extensive damage to many commercial buildings in the downtown area.
Upon receiving Master’s financial contribution of over US$9,300 and Her loving instruction to help those in need, on August 26, our Association members from San Francisco visited Napa, where we purchased baby supplies, children’s toys and clothes, and then delivered them to the shelter set up by Red Cross at Crosswalk Community Church. We also shared Master’s publications and copies of an organic vegan diet magazine with the Red Cross staff there.
Returning to the shelter a few days later, we gave cash contributions and Master’s publications to several displaced people whose homes were still uninhabitable. Almost every recipient was moved to tears by Master’s loving care. One father cried and hugged our Association members tightly.
About three weeks later, in answering the call from a displaced lady who reached out to us in urgent need, our Association members contributed US$1,000. We provided her with the funds as well as some of Master’s publications, an organic vegan diet magazine, and vegan candies. She was very grateful for the help.
We sincerely thank You Master for giving us this opportunity to share love with our fellow human beings in need.
