I was inspired by Tricycle’s interview with Ani Choying Drolma, the “singing nun” from Nepal (“Topping the Charts for Freedom,” Fall 2009). Ani Choying chose to transform her own childhood pain into a quest to bring joy to Nepali street children. One of her favorite ways to bring happiness to these children who “play in the dust” is to walk the streets and hand-deliver stuffed animals she has gathered from friends. Her beautiful spirit moved me. My young daughter and I put together a box of stuffed animals she no longer plays with and shipped the box to Ani Choying’s organization, the Nuns’ Welfare Foundation of Nepal. I want my daughter to know how fortunate she is and not forget those children who have less than she does.
