Our prayers are with the children and families of Nepal during this time of extreme challenge from the devastating 7.8 Earthquake.
We need your help to "Pay It Forward" to send medical supplies to those in need.

Thank you to all those helping us to reach our goals with your tax deductible donations!
With special thanks to our partners to "PAY IT FORWARD" by providing the full match-donation offers for all of our donors... this way everyone of our donors is "Paying It Froward."
The medical supply needs for crisis-relief efforts will persist in Nepal for some time, so we are setting our goal to $5,000,000 and hopefully will reset it higher.

In the wake of the powerful 7.8 earthquake in Nepal and after one of our partners in the medical supply business came forward with a generous match-donation offer in the form of new medical supplies, we decided to set up this fundraiser. We are focusing on the effective and efficient charities that have an established presence on the ground that will also minimize potential corruption. We are continuing extensive research on this along with some of our partners. There are several such charities that we support with a special emphasis on women and children.
We have three phases for our ANGEL DONORS to participate with us in our response to this crisis:
Phase One: Immediate relief -
That is what this fundraiser is currently set up for with Medical Supplies and matching donations to the organizations that need it most.
Phase Two: After the major band-aids... what is next -
We are actively researching best ways to support master planning and rebuilding and secondary issues that will need to be addressed for years to come for the entire community there. The Mobile Hospitals are of primary focus. It will allow movement of the hospitals to areas that need it most.
Phase Three: Long Term -
We will be helping to provide larger solutions in healthcare - especially for women & children, clean water, renewable energy, affordable & sustainable housing, renewable energy, communications, infrastructure, food production and agriculture.
LARGE ANGEL DONOR NOTE:
If you are one of the very Large Angel Donors, we have special projects that need your help in the hundreds of thousands, millions and beyond. We have special reward programs and charitable 501c3 non-profit status. The Earthquake Disaster is easily a 5 to 10 year reconstruction project.

With your contribution we will all BE the difference we are looking for... Please contribute as much as you can because the more we receive the more we can give.
Let's work together to get this moving forward!
