Oak Grove School


Donation page:

The intent of the Oak Grove School is for students to develop the skills necessary to function in the modern world, and at the same time to develop a foundation for inquiry into perennial questions of human life.

Consistent with the views of its founder, J. Krishnamurti, the school does not subscribe to any creed or ideology. Rather, it assists students in the open-minded investigation of enduring human issues.

Krishnamurti said about the school, "The school is concerned with freedom and order. Freedom is not the expression of one's own desire, choice or self-interest. That inevitably leads to disorder. Freedom of choice is not freedom, though it may appear so; nor is order, conformity or imitation. Order can only come with the insight that to choose is itself the denial of freedom.

In school one learns the importance of relationship which is not based on attachment and possession. It is here one can learn about the movement of thought,

love and death, for all this is our life. From the ancient of times, man has sought something beyond the materialistic world, something immeasurable, something sacred. It is the intent of this school to inquire into this possibility.


Brockwood Park School


The young are inheriting a complex world. It is a world in which rapid technological progress goes hand-in-hand with environmental, social, economic, and political crises. Must the young take the world as it is, accepting an education that enables them to 'fit in' to society, or can they learn to question deeply what they see and respond creatively out of a sense of personal integrity that enables them to meet whatever life may bring?

At Brockwood Park School we are committed to educating young people to meet life as a whole. Academic excellence is absolutely necessary, but equal importance is given to an ongoing inquiry into the way we live our daily lives. Many of the difficulties in today's world are the outcome of attitudes and beliefs that education for our times needs to examine.

In the secure and friendly surroundings of Brockwood Park, students are encouraged to reflect on their own thoughts, feelings and actions and on those of others. Brockwood offers a setting where students and staff can learn to live and work together harmoniously and intelligently. This process is liberating, for with growth in awareness and understanding of our behaviour, we can discover the immense potential of life and our possibility of living it to the full.

Solar water disinfection - the SODIS method - is a simple procedure to disinfect drinking water. Contaminated water is filled in a transparent PET-bottle or glass bottle and exposed to the sun for 6 hours. During this time, the UV-radiation of the sun kills diarrhoea generating pathogens. The SODIS-method helps to prevent diarrhoea and thereby is saving lives of people. This is urgently necessary as still more than 4000 children die every day from the consequences of diarrhoea.

On behalf of Teen Cancer America, thank you for your generous gift. We sincerely appreciate your commitment to help us improve the lives of teens and young adults with cancer.

Fighting cancer is scary at any age, but battling it as a teen or young adult is even more daunting, given the unique emotional, physical and practical needs of this age group. Young people can get some of the most rare and aggressive forms of cancer. Their health and stamina can mask their illness for a longer time. Their rapidly changing bodies can work against them, enabling the cancer to grow faster. The emotional upheaval of adolescence can make a cancer diagnosis even harder to cope with.

Our primary goals are to improve the experience for teens and young adults with cancer, from diagnosis, to treatment and thereafter, not only focusing on their physical treatment, but their emotional and psychological health and well-being as well.

Teen Cancer America has exciting plans for the future. We will be sure to keep you informed as to how we are doing but hope you will also check in on us via our website at

The Environment and Cancer Research Foundation

The Environment and Cancer Research Foundation wants to promote scientific research on the association between the environment and cancer and other chronic diseases.

Several forms of cancer, chronic diseases such as diabetes, different neurological conditions, chronic fatigue syndrome and psychiatric diagnoses are increasing even at lower ages. Our environment with exposure to different environmental pollutants and to radiofrequency radiation may contribute considerably and be significant factors for illness. Of special concern are new environmental pollutants and the increasing exposure to radiofrequency radiation in the environment. Long-term health effects have not been studied.

To be able to prevent the increase in disease incidence and sick-leaves, research is needed about the impact of environmental pollutants and radiofrequency radiation on human health. We are all exposed in the society today.

Hi Scott

This is to confirm our conversation that

I was opted out of mailing list but I was not flagged to never receive anything (which is what I wanted) and was not opted out of not having my name and address traded with other organization (which is clearly what I wanted when I asked to be removed from your mailing list). You say you have people who are pissed at you. There is really good reason for it. Maybe it's time to review your publicity policies. What happened to me can not simply be a mistake.

Myon Burrell

Hi. My heart goes out to Myon. I just donated, and shared the following message on 2 of the large groups I run on FB (10's of thousands of people). I'd love to do an interview with him when he is settled down... Best wishes. Reza Ganjavi 213 207 6535

Off topic. I just donated to Myon. He was falsely imprisoned for 20 years since he was 16 years old. Just one example of huge injustice against blacks. When being interrogated, he didn't ask for a lawyer, he asked for his mother! Another man already confessed to the crime but they still imprisoned Myon too.

Jay Boughton family fund

Nicholas Reed and Miranda Reed are organizing this fundraiser.

On Tuesday July 6th 2021 a senseless act took the life of a beloved husband, father, and member of the community. Jay was the kind of guy you wanted to be around. He was an active member of our baseball family and his love for the game and passion to help the players was second to none. Jay, you were loved by so many and will be deeply missed. As the Boughton family navigates the weeks to come, we hope this fund will help them focus on family and give them the time they need to heal.

Thank you Reza. Your generosity is creating a better life for orangutans and their forest - one that values and protects these animals. And since people need the orangutans and their forest homes, you are also helping to create a healthier, happier planet for every single person in the world. Once again, thank you for adopting and being a part of The Orangutan Project.
