Nepal Earthquake- Load that truck!
Organized by: Marc Gast
I'm in Nepal working with 3 organizations providing relief to earthquake survivors.
Trucks, jeeps, and vans are being sent HALF-FULL. Help us fill these trucks please
We're in desperate need for TENTS, BLANKETS, and RICE
Your donation will go into the truck within 2-3 days
LG tent 1 family= $12
LG blanket 1 family= $9
30kg of rice= $15
Measles and diarrheal diseases are becoming serious health threats
Survivors are sleeping outside in muddy, cold, windy conditions for fear of their homes being destroyed by landslides or collapsing due to the earthquake and its continued aftershocks.
At least 160,000 homes have been destroyed. This number is projected to reach 500,000.
Over 7,000 are confirmed dead. more than 260,000 children are homeless
It continues to rain and storm on people who are without shelter
People are in need of IMMEDIATE assistance, this is the time to give.
91.4% of your contribution will go in the truck, van, jeep within 2-3 days
CrowdRise + wepay charges this fee, the lowest % I could find.
***If you have a paypal account, you can send your donation to firstname.lastname@example.org and I believe the percentage taken out will be less.
Send me a Facebook personal message of what you'd like to contribute (rice, tents, blankets)
A general contribution is perfectly fine, volunteers here are managing priority items very well.
*****THIS FUNDRAISER WILL END ON SATURDAY, MAY 9*******
