GHHF appeal to the followers of SAVETEMPLES.ORG:
Dear Hindu Samudai, sorry for the interruption, but GLOBAL HINDU HERITAGE FOUNDATION really needs you. This is the 1st ever appeal we've shown you. All we ask is $51 [ ₹ ] and it's easy to donate on your phone. We are not greedy, so consider donating just $51 so that you can come again next year; also we understand we are not the only Hindu organization, so we encourage you to save your donation pocket. Please share our articles, to spread awareness and also to help us decide either to reduce the collective donation burden next year or add more Hindu revival causes. We ask you, humbly: Please don't scroll away.
Curious on why we began this appeal?

First off, GLOBAL HINDU HERITAGE FOUNDATION is very pleased by your support in keeping our Hindutvam reviving activities as a continuous effort. We have been brainstorming and working at various levels & activities in withholding our religious freedom with dignity and pride in Bharat.

GHHF runs purely on donations. But it has been unfortunate in recent months for being exhausted in standing against the overwhelming Hindu-extinguishing forces, on various fronts like judicial, cultural, educational, evangelical, jihadical, etc, with present financial aid that we are receiving. We have almost reached a brink of giving up our struggle.

As we all are aware that voluntary service compromises on quality of service, we can achieve quality only with more volunteers. But since we have too few voluntary people on the ground, we have injected salaried employees, welcome gifts to Gharwapasis, daily gifts to Bala Samskar kids, helping poor temple priests, goushalas & temple rennovations, legal maintenance, etc. And this in turn is now becoming a bottle neck to achieve financial fulfillment every month/year. All we ask is $51 per year. More members, less collective burden, more service.

How long do we run this drive?
OK. Now that we began apologizing for interrupting you, please feel free to get interrupted during Kartheeka maas (around November). Well, religions of Tithe and Zakat/Jiziya do suck up to 10% of the income by appealing every month. Let us all Hindus get used to be reminded once an year as a small effort to forward a step towards the revival of Hindutvam.

Fund Raising 6th Dec 2009 Program in NJ to Save Temples

06 Nov 2008 322 Views

GHHF invites you on Dec 6th 2009 at Sri Venkateswara Temple, 780 Old Farm Rd, Bridgewater, NJ 08807, to a fund raiser and the grand cultural programs. The 3rd Pada-Yatra by Kamal Kumar Swami is currently in progress. We need your support to continue our efforts to bring awareness to save temples in India.  (Click for 12/06/2009 flyer in Color PDF )

“There are as many as 2,07,000 temples in Karnataka & the total income of these temples amounts to 72 crores. Out of this, only a sum of 6 crores are being spent by the Government for their upkeep. On the other hand, the Govt. spend a phenomenal amount of Rs 50 crores for madrassas & Rs 10 crores for churches (from the Govt. Funds)"   - Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, India Today in 2003

 

Temples in India are under Government control. Only 18% of revenue generated is given back to temples and 82% used at Governments discretion. Looting, massive sale of temple lands at throw away prices, demolition, illegal encroachments is occurring all over South India.

GHHF supports our sister organization Devalaya Parirakshana Samithi in an effort to save temples in India.  Funds are used for awareness campaigns and for planned programs such as 'Maa Develayam (Our Temple),  Adarsha Devalayam (Model Temple),  Adopt a temple,  Model Management structure for Temples,  challenge abuse in Government bodies. Several illegal sales of temple lands were challenged in High Court and put on hold. Kamal Kumar Swami of GHHF walked several miles in 3 series of Pada Yatras visiting temples in hundreds of villages bringing awareness to more than a million people. Literally hundreds of news paper articles were written of his work and Padayatra that raised enormous awareness to temples in Andhra Pradesh that forced the Government to pay attention to the issues.  There are many challenges ahead from curbing the run away Government departments abuse,  public apathy and temples becoming dilapidated at alarming rate etc that needs to be addressed.
