Well, we had phenomenal acoustic concert fundraiser on that oh-so-cold December 15th evening. Thank you to Cat Tuttle, Jon Jackson, Chris Jackson, and Katie Fitzgerald for the incredible performances! I think everyone in attendance can agree that we were truly blessed to have amazing performers in our midst! We raised over $1000 during that evening and the days to follow, so thank you to all who donated. We promise to have gingerbread men with red arm bands at the next BAM event for all who enjoyed.

A few HUGE thank you’s are due for all the local companies who donated for that evening. Without the gifts and food we certainly wouldn’t have raised the money we did, and we plain old wouldn’t have had as much fun getting into the holiday spirit; thus, a word from our sponsors: Thank you to Little Tibet at 1174 Mass. Ave in Cambridge for the necklaces; Tibet Arts Gallery ( at 1925 Mass. Ave in Cambridge for the prayer bead bracelets and incense; and Bodhi Tree: Art of Gentle Living at 1684 Mass. Ave ( for the beautiful Buddha sculpture. We can attest to the fact that these are great Tibetan stores whose owners all have wonderful hearts. Their products are dope, and they’re all in very close proximity to our fine campus. We chose them very selectively. Check them out. Next, thank you to the best Cambridge based cafes: Mariposa Bakery at 424 Mass. Ave for all the Apple Cider; Simon’s Coffee Shop at 1736 Mass. Ave for the coffee, and Darwin’s Ltd. at 148 Mount Auburn St. for the hot chocolate mix (they’re famous for it.) Again, all somewhere in between Central Square, Harvard Square, and Porter Square, all with great vibes, people, and delicious food/drink/music. We chose them equally selectively.

There we have it. We really couldn’t have done it without everyone involved. So support these local businesses and tell them how great the fundraiser was, then tell the artists how much you enjoyed their music when you see them perform again, and then pat yourselves on the back for helping out Aung Za Bu Monastery School as much as you did. Gosh, humans rock.
