Bhai Kahn Singh Nabha, in Mahan Kosh, said "A Sikh, who gives Guru’s Dasvandh out of the money earned by honest means earns praise and glory in the world." Given how important the concept of Dasvandh is in Sikhi, I was worried that it was slipping away amongst us young Sikhs in North America. I wanted to find a way to make it incredibly easy to find projects that spoke to each person within the community.
