"I don't like earthquakes, they hurt people. I want to get the little girl home and put bandage on her", my three year old says to me.
Not sure if mommy can bring that little girl home, but can surely help raise money for the children and their families affected by the devastating Nepal earthquake.
Friends - As you all are aware, an earthquake with an estimated magnitude of 7.8 struck Nepal near the capital of Kathmandu on April 25th. Thousands of people have died across the region, including Nepal, India and Bangladesh.
Based on the news reports the kids were hit the hardest. Most of the parents were out of the house working while the kids were home, when the earthquake struck. Houses have collapsed like a pack of cards. There can be no greater pain than watching your kids die.
Per UNICEF around 1.7 million children are now in urgent need of aid in the areas worst-hit by the #NepalEarthquake. They've just launched a $50m appeal to get more lifesaving aid to children and their families amid the growing risk of disease outbreaks.
They are on the ground delivering vital support, including clean water, shelter and sanitation.
I urge all my friends and family that WE CAN TOOdonate and support efforts by UNICEF in helping children and their families in need. Every bit counts!
Use this website to make a secure, tax-deductible donation to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, supporting UNICEF's relief efforts in the wake of the Nepal earthquake: $50, $100, $250, $500 or any amount you can give will help save kids' lives.
