Nepal Earthquake Relief, Dinner, Auction and More
Organized by: Holly Shakya
EVENT DATE May 16, 2015
We are raising funds to contribute to earthquake relief in Nepal.
We are already working on the ground providing immediate food relief for those in the greatest need. Every day we get calls for help for villages that have been completely destroyed and have received no aid. We really need your support today!
Donations of any amount welcome and greatly appreciated.
We are working with people who are on the ground leveraging all possible networks and resources to get supplies out to the most affected areas.
The dinner event: On May 16th, we will be hosting a fundraising dinner at our home in San Diego, Ca, including an online and live silent auction. Who are we: the hosts for this event are Birendra, Holly, Lilia and Julien Shakya with lots of help, support and love from our local community. Donations for the dinner are $50 for each person and 99% of that money will go towards earthquake relief. If you are planning to attend the dinner please note that when you make your donation.
You CAN donate through this site whether or not you are attending the dinner.
As most people are aware, a massive earthquake struck Nepal on April 25th, causing widespread destruction across the country. Particularly hard hit are village areas surrounding the Kathmandu Valley, where entire villages have literally been obliterated. Funds are desperately needed for immediate needs, including shelter, water, and food. Much of the most effective relief is being delivered through small local networks, in which people are coming together to respond to the needs of the most affected communities, many of whom have not yet received any aid whatsoever. Rebuilding will be a long hard process, requiring the support of the international community.
Thank you for your love and support!
