In honor of our beloved Amma's 62nd Birthday, MA Centers are currently offering very special AMMA items for silent auction.
Several of these items have been donated by Amma; many are from Her recent 2015 North American Tour and some additional items
have been donated by Amma's loving devotees. The auction is online and bidding is now open.
Proceeds from this online auction will benefit Amma's Local and International Humanitarian Service Projects,
collectively known as "Embracing the World".
Web auctions in the past have contributed to many of Amma's humanitarian projects across the globe, including Amrita Kuteeram (Amma's housing project),
Disaster Relief efforts, and the Farmer Relief Project. The annual auctions have built houses in India for the poor, contributed to 2013
Typhoon Haiyan relief funds in Philippines, 2011 Japan earthquake and tsunami relief funds, 2010 Haiti earthquake disaster relief efforts, 2005 Hurricane Katrina relief funds in US,
and supported both phases of the Tsunami relief efforts. More recently Mata Amritanandamayi Math (MAM) announced two massive charitable projects: a 50-crore relief-and-rehabilitation project
in the flood-ravaged state of Uttarakhand (North India) and Amrita Swasraya Gramam a programme to adopt 101 villages throughout India
insuring a proper home for each villager along with social,
educational, medical and community services for the adopted villages so that they may become self reliant and thrive as a community.
