Gassho! Orange County Shorinji Kempo Branch Charity Bazaar was held on March 14-15th, 2019. The Charity Bazaar started with an hour of fast paced Shorinji Kempo practice. All of the parents/students were eager to finish practice so they could start buying their items. Items on sale ranged from $1.00 - $10. Students purchased stuffed animals, clocks, toys and game boards. One table had many Shorinji Kempo goods from Ozaki Corporation!!! Watching the students/parents smiling and laughing was the best part of the event! $509 was raised and donated to St. Jude Children’s hospital. Giving back to the community in which we live in is at the heart of Shorinji Kempo studies. “Half for one's own happiness, and half for the happiness of others”. Keep up the great work! Gassho!
