Handing out Knowledge through Candy
[Guest post by Lhakyi and Deesal of Boston]
Today for Lhakar we celebrated Inji Halloween (Tibetan activist style). With the small donation from some Tibetans we decided to make candy bags with information about Tibet. RANGZEN CANDIES!
We attached this back to back info to each candy bag!
We finally finished placing the tags on the candy and started packing them up for Wednesday/Lhakar.
Oh we were ready! Ready to hand out some candies! RANGZEN Candies! Although these candies weren’t nutritionally, they were packed with Knowledge and we all know which is more important. Obviously KNOWLEDGE!
Here’s us starting our candy give away. Oh REJECTED! Thats gotta hurt.
Clearly I wouldn’t know anything about that cause they were taking it off my hands like hot potatoes! HEHEHE
At the end of Boston Vigil, I caught these kids retracing the ChalkTibet stuff because it was starting to fade. No we didn’t force these kids!
So we ended the night with all our bags of Rangzen candies gone and the next generation learning the ropes of exile Tibetan tradition (activism)! It was a good day!
