EVENT DATE: Dec 10, 2012
Our good friend Ian Blanchard needs our help!
Ian traveled to Nepal over a year ago where he worked with the people of a small village to build a school. He worked there for several months as a teacher before returning home in November of 2011. Before he left the small village and his students, he promised that he would soon return to check on his school and his students.
In September, Ian made good on that promise and returned to the remote mountain village. However due to some bad luck and unforseen circumstances he is currently stuck their without a return flight home for the holidays.
Airfare is NOT cheap, especially this time of year. A one way from Nepal is right around $800 and the prices will likely rise soon. The goal here is to raise $500.00 to help Ian and his family get him back to NJ for the holidays and so he can continue to work on a lot of exciting projects back home. Ian is in the early stages of organinzing a community orchard project in Stillwater, which he has been working on for over a year.
Anyone that has ever met Ian knows his generousity and kindness. We don't have a lot of time here, so its important to share this page with all of Ian's friends, or anyone that you think could help. No donation is too small! If you do not have a credit card or prefer to donate cash in person, please contact me.
Please SPREAD THE WORD!
