We've exceded 40,000 Books!!!

Book Distribution Team on Dec. 26th
after meeting the goal!

For those who have been closely following, ISKCON Toronto's Sankirtan Team has been on a mission to distribute (share)  14,000+ books for Prabhupada Marathon 2012 and 40,000+ books for the entire year!  This meant hitting the streets and getting books to the public but also to family, friends and more.

On Boxing Day (Dec 26th), we met our goal! "It was one of the coldest days of the year so far, but as has been a tradition, devotees headed out at 6:30am to catch the early shoppers and stayed on till about 4:00pm when we met our target. There was constant kirtan for the entire duration we were out and many many devotees came by to participate throughout the day. At the end of the day, we distributed about 350 books on the street."

This is great and an inspiration to us. It is also really nice how you set that target in the first place and are making book distribution such a priority for your yatra.
