Can I raise money for a charity that provides Reiki?


#1

I was recently asked to bowl in a charity event sponsered by a local charity called Sisters of Mercy. Before agreeing I decided to check out what services they provide. One of them is reiki. Can I in good conscience help raise money for this organization or should I pass?

Thanks in advance,
Adam

If the money you raise is going directly into the Reiki fund, then I cannot recommend that you participate as Reiki is a non-Christian spiritual practice. But if the money is going to worthy projects it would be okay to participate, especially if you can earmark the project the money you raise will benefit.
