WOW! We've Hit 3,000 Books!!!

4:55:00 PM By Kevala-Bhakti Dasa (Keshav) , , , 2 comments

For those who have been closely following, Toronto's Sankirtan Team has been on a mission to distribute (share) 2,010 books during the month of December, a traditional month of giving. This meant hitting the streets and getting books to the public but also to family, friends and more.


To give some perspective, this "December Marathon" has been a yearly tradition and Toronto's temple has normally done about 600 books. The goal this year was to do 2,010 to welcome the year 2010 and it was looked upon as a VERY lofty goal. Well, not only was that goal passed last week, but we've now officially hit 3,000!!!

Here is an excerpt from the official email sent from the Sankirtan Team:
"So ITS OFFICIAL WE HAVE CROSSED 3,000! TODAY ON THE 29TH DECEMBER at -20 DEGREES! BUT we're still counting :) and there are TWO FULL DAYS LEFT! Param Vijayate Sri Krsna Sankirtanam (glory to the sri-krishna-sankirtana)."
