Letter from the Founders
2016 was one of the toughest year for many of us and for this nation. Strong divisions started to erupt between friends, families, neighbors and communities. Fear led people to make decisions about each other and before we know it, many of us stopped calling that one person we don't agree with now.
These misunderstandings and that fear can break us as a nation if we don't act quickly. And all we have to do is to have conversations that make us uncomfortable, that challenge our beliefs and sometimes shake us to the core. But those are the conversations that help us find common ground.
To provide safe space for those conversations, to encourage people to see past differences, to enable step forward from tolerance, we at The Chai Spot are taking initiative! With a joint partnership with Sughar Foundation, (learn more here: http://www.ted.com/talks/khalida_brohi_how_i_work_to_protect_women_from_honor_killings a non profit organization dedicated towards unleashing potential in women, we are getting on the road this February of 2017 and going to small towns, cities, social and religious gatherings and to educational institutes and providing a safe space for peaceful dialogue, offering our delicious hot chai's and taking handmade gifts from women in Pakistan.
We aim to hit about 10 states in the next 11 months, but all that will matter is how many hearts we touch. And with YOUR help, we can do so much together! If you believe this division is not what represents you or this country, DONATE ONLINE here, your $5 can make a huge difference! https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/peace-love-and-chai-tour--2#/
We wait for your support and hope to see many of you on the road!
