The Just One Look Project developed by John and Carla Sherman is made possible by The River Ganga Foundation, the non-profit organization we operate and through which we receive your donations. Our work supported by small donations from all over the world. Donations make up more than 93% of our income.
In these times, it is not easy to decide where your donation should go. The needs in the world are massive and so are the requests for donations for the great work being done in different areas around the world. I wish I had the financial possibility to say yes to every request for donations and support many of the great initiatives out there. But I don't have that financial possibility. And I have had to decide for myself where my money is best spent and where, in the long run, it makes the biggest impact for as many as possible. And there are a couple of central reasons why The River Ganga Foundation did become that place for me to donate too. Reasons that are very much linked to me personally. The River Ganga Foundation's main work is to spread a method related to mental health called The Just One Look Method. That method destroyed for me a kind of general mental misery that I wasn't aware that I had until it was gone. And I saw that that mental misery had been the cause of much of my life's suffering. Suffering that I presumed was a natural part of being alive as a human being. I eventually also came to see that this general mental misery was the main cause of much of other people's suffering and craziness too. The process of "mental recovery" finally resulted in the insight that the suffering in the world is actually nothing but the suffering in the minds of many. My conclusion is that The Just One Look Method supported by The River Ganga Foundation goes to the root of the human problem and heals it for good. My donation therefore goes to support that no new suffering is created, rather than trying to fix everything that our collective craziness has created. And I see it as a privilege to be able to be helpful in this way. To see the true nature of human suffering and also get the chance to do something about it that actually works.

If 400 people were to donate $15 a month ($0.50 a day) for one year, all the current expenses of the foundation would be covered and we'd have enough breathing space to work on finding the funding we need elsewhere, by submitting grant proposals to foundations and seeking corporate donations, for example.
If you are unable to set up recurring donations at this time, you can send a one-time donation. If you have a bank account in the US, the best thing (least expensivbe for us) is to mail us a check or a postal money order. We can only accept US bank checks and US money orders at the moment.
