THE STORY:

This past winter I spent 6 weeks in Nepal, and had the joy of meeting many people whose kindness and generosity changed my life. While the Nepali people have so little relative to what we consider normal in a western lifestyle, they gave without hesitation in order to make travelers in their country feel welcome. They shared their food, a place in their home, small gifts, and their friendship. Now devastation has come to Nepal in the wake of a massive earthquake. As Americans, we have the luxury of being able to turn a blind eye once the news has disappeared from the front page, even as the cities and villages remain in ruins, and the lives of many are forever changed. Another luxury of being an American is that we have the power to help. By making a donation, funds will go directly through me and into the hands of Nepali people. People like Ashish Subedi and his family, who called me directly to ask for help, not only for themselves but for their community. People like Utsav Gautam and his charity hostel that houses and educates over 40 young children from poor, rural parts of the country, and hosted me personally this past Christmas. People like my superhuman guide and porter, Pemba and Kumar, who spend their lives leading and carrying the gear of wealthy westerners on their heads and backs through the Himalayan Mountains.

You have the power to help rebuild homes and communities for these wonderful people. No donation is too small. If you cannot give, please pass this along to someone who may be able to contribute. Thank you for taking the time to read this post, and Namaste :) 
