THE STORY:

As many of you know, Nepal was my home for almost two years. During my time there, I grew immensely as a person (those of you who have been to Nepal will know how easy it is to fall in love with it and how quickly it changes you.) I still feel deeply connected to the country, people, and culture that I grew to care about so much. Nepal is a poor country (classified as a "least developed country" by the World Bank.) It has an incredibly rich culture and history. Many of the temples and historical sites have been damaged or destroyed. The people are generous, resourceful, and possess an inherent kindness I had rarely encountered before moving there.

They're struggling with the aftermath of a massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake and many aftershocks. The loss of life has been staggering. With many injured and much rubble yet to be cleared away, it isn't yet possible to judge the full scope of the devastation. People are camped out in open spaces under tarps strung across bamboo poles. There is little to no sanitation in these camps. There is a massive need for blankets, food, basic medicines, and clean water. With the monsoon starting early this year, the risk for disease is high.

While large aid agencys are on the ground, the government is ill equipped to deal with a disaster this large and attempts to organize have been slow. Many villages, even ones close to Kathmandu have been left to fend for themselves. By assisting with this small fundrasier, you can be sure 100% of your donation will be used to purchase supplies for families not currently being aided by the government or large organizations. The supplies will be distributed by people I know who will happily provide receipts and photos of the aid being packaged and given out. 
.

Please consider donating. Even small amounts will make a difference.

Thank you.
