We have just received a call for help from our Sherpa friend Dawa in Kathmandu. He accompanied us on our trek last year and got word that two children (Asisha Rai and Anisha Rai) miss their mother. She wasn’t found after the earthquake and they need support.
We have just transferred 20,000 Nepalese Rupees (about 177 EUR) from the ebook sales via Western Union. Dawa will pick it up and help the two childen directly.
We have just donated $1000 of the fundraiser photo ebook proceeds to the Maya Sherpa Project. This brings the overall donations from our fundraiser to over $4000. Thank you all so much for your support!! Please consider telling others about this project!
We know the Maya Sherpa Project personally and 100% confident that our donation will quickly reach those who need it most. Their focus is on supporting Sherpas in remote Himalayan villages. Those villages are the ones that need help most at this point.
It’s been five days since the earthquake and two days since we started selling our fundraiser ebook People of the Himalayas.
I’m thrilled to be able to report that we have just crossed the $4000 line and we have already donated $3000 of those to dZi.org over the last two days. dZi is a local charity that we trust and that will get help directly to the Nepali people without any unnecessary overhead. Visit the dZi.org website.
This wouldn’t have been possible without YOU. We and the Nepali people are eternally grateful that you all chipped in. Thank you!
