Announcing Our Non-Profit Of The Month

At Blue Lotus Chai, we are really appreciative of all the ways people choose to serve our world through their many non-profits.

Monthly — beginning in June 2018 — we will honor one of our BLC family members by having them choose our “Non-Profit Of The Month”. This non-profit will be spotlighted via our social media channels & will receive an in-kind & cash donation.

We’ll be sharing our first honoree this week…
Stay tuned! #BLCNonProfits @BlueLotusChai
