THE STORY:

UPDATE - September 2015:

I am now in the 8th grade in school, and I'm continuing to fundraise for the Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation! They are working in Nepal to help rebuild homes, the Kunde Hospital, and schools. Please support me so that I can help them!

Thanks, Brendan

 

Hello, my name is Brendan Kaye and I am in 7th grade in Massachusetts. What started out as a school history project about Mt. Everest has transformed into a dedication to help the Sherpas of Nepal. This campaign is to raise funds to support the Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation. This organization builds schools, maintains hospitals, and has ongoing preservation projects at Sagarmatha National Park. When the campaign is finished, all the funds will be given to this foundation, and I will then fly out to Nepal for an 18 day trek there. I will volunteer at the Zeke O' Connor High School  and trek to the Kunde Hospital to honor its 50th Anniversary. Regardless of how much I raise, I have promised to donate a minimum of $2,500 to the Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation. Any help you can provide would mean so much to me. Every penny counts! Thank you so much for the support.

EARTHQUAKE UPDATE: 

As you know, this past weekend there was a massive earthquake in Nepal reaching a 7.8 on the Richter scale. The Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation is already in Nepal offering aid, medical attention and shelter to the vast number of people in villages with little to no access to roads. The earthquake epicenter was 50 miles from the city so many people are now cut off from the city and any chance of help from there. The SEHF workers are doing what they can to bring in food and other help. ****** Their own Dr. Kami Temba Sherpa lost his entire home in the quake. His family is living under a tarp, but he continues to give aid to people in need!*****

SEHF has been in Nepal since the early 1970s and it will remain long after the disaster relief teams leave. They will then focus on rebuilding with a concentrated effort on the remote mountain villages that are hard to access but have so many people in need….
