BENEFITING: TEAM RUBICON
EVENT DATE: Apr 30, 2015
UPDATE: WE TOPPED $1000 IN JUST 24 HOURS! WE MATCHED WITH A DONATION OF $1,015, AS PROMISED. BUT LET'S KEEP GOING, FRIENDS, AND SEE HOW MUCH BETTER WE CAN DO!
NEPAL NEEDS DISASTER AID.
The photos and reports from Nepal are just unimaginable. By all on-the-ground accounts, the entire Kathmandu Valley is in a living nightmare. With fresh memories of the exact ground that is now this disaster zone, we could not just watch the news and sit idly by. We want to help, and are organizing a quick 3-day fire-drill fundraiser. We hope you will consider helping by way of a small donation.
We are raising money to support Team Rubicon's Nepal Aid. This award-winning small non-profit is currently mobilizing a large recon team to go into the impact zone. Their team members are highly qualified, usually former military men and women, many with medical training. They are exactly the people needed in a disaster zone. If you're interested in learning more about the organization, their website is www.teamrubiconusa.org.
Chris is a member of Team Rubicon Region II. Having both participated in Team Rubicon's Rockaway-response team for Hurricane Sandy victims, we know just how crucial and deeply appreciated this outside help is. Teams of volunteers go into the belly of the disaster zone to distribute food, water, supplies, and provide much-needed medical support, labor and organization for rescue and recovery efforts.
3 DAYS TO RAISE. HOW CAN YOU HELP?
You don't have to give a lot at all. In fact, we're not asking that. We're asking you to give just $10. If you can give more, that's awesome, but certainly not necessary. In the next 72 hours, a small donation is all that's needed to show your support.
For every donation to this Nepal Aid fund up to $1000, we, Chris and Carrie Albanese, pledge to match it. When you pledge $10, we will pledge $10 more in your name. If every person who subscribes to or reads our little blog donated $10 each, we could quickly raise well over $2000 just like that. In just 3 days. Together. (And, look! We have!)
We'll close this fundraiser and match the funds at midnight EST on April 29th.
From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU.
Chris & Carrie
