Suggest Buddhist organizations and charities for the next "Good Work" section of Tricycle

As many of you might have noticed, recent issues of Tricycle include a "Good Work" section that features a selection of Buddhist not-for-profits and charities. By highlighting these organizations, which have ranged from BuddhaBadges to Help Animals India, we hope to help them generate publicity and funding. Now we're looking for suggestions for the Spring 2011 "Good Work" section and we need your help. Send recommendations to info@tricycle.com or post them directly below. Look for the latest installment of "Good Work" in the upcoming Winter issue, on newsstands early November!
