Aid For Nepal
Organized by: Greg Ogden
Hey friends and family,
On Oct. 25th, my fiancé and I will be heading to Nepal before traveling on to India, Thailand and Cambodia. I have not seen Nepal since 2008 and there have been some major changes.
In April and May, Nepal was struck by two back-to-back earthquakes registering 7.8 and 7.3. The quakes killed almost 9,000 and injured many thousands more. The damage to buildings, cultural and religious centers and infrastructure was severe.
Our goal is to raise a bit of cash, with your help, to bring directly to rural areas still in need of medical and educational materials such as antibiotics and school supplies. Every dollar donated (minus the 1% CrowdRise keeps) will go directly to the people who need it most. My Nepali friend has worked with many reputable aid groups in the country and will help inform our decisions as to where funds will be allocated.
To be clear, you are NOT supporting any personal or travel costs. You'll be providing much needed material support and services. A few bucks can change lives here folks! Donate if you can but at the very least share with like-minded folks. We appreciate your help and will keep you all updated!
Thank you and lots of love,
Greg & Michele
