I was so sad when news broke about the recent earthquake in Nepal. I have traveled through the foothills and high country of the Himalayas and have been mesmerized by the people, culture and beauty of the tiny kingdom. It is heartbreaking to know of the hardship so many will face in the face of this devasatating natural disaster. Many of you know that my father, Don Nelson, travels to Nepal frequently and was in Nepal at the time of the earthquake. We feel so fortunate that he and his small trekking party escaped with only minor injury to our dear friend Pema Sherpa. I hope you will consider donating to this rebuilding effort. Even if you have already donated, the need in Nepal is so great and the rebuilding effort will take years. We are so fortunate in the U.S. with our modern conveniences, comfortable homes and ample food. Many Nepalis toil endlessly to eke out an eke out an existence, please help them with the basic necessity of shelter as the monsoon season approaches.
