On Sunday, July 5th, at the last TOVP presentation of the North American Tour, the CHAD (Chapter a Day) kids group of the Seattle, Washington temple dove into the ecstasy of the fundraising frenzy and pledged $11,000 (Silver Gratitude Coin) for the TOVP.
This is a wonderful example of young Vaishnavas learning how to sacrifice and offer the fruits of their work to the service of the Lord, even before they have the fruits to offer. May they be blessed with Lord Nityananda’s mercy.
Krishna Gundimeda prabhu from Seattle explains what the CHAD kids group is all about:
CHAD is (Chapter A Day). We have a Tele Conference call for that 3 times a day. In the morning these kids recite one chapter from Srimad Bhagavatam, in the afternoon one chapter from Bhagavad Gita, and on the evening call kids have Krishna Katha bed time stories before they go to bed. The kids join the call on holidays and weekends, and adults join on week-days. We have 20+ kids who join the call.
