Nepal Earthquake Relief - Eco Nuts

$1,040 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 11 people in 23 months
Mona Weiss  LAWNDALE, CA
Eco Nuts is a US-based organic cleaning products company, and we source many of our goods from the Kathmandu Valley where a major earthquake has affected hundreds of people we work with directly and left many homeless.

The companies we work with employ over 200 people in Kathmandu, and they are now trying to supply basic needs to their staff and their families, including shelter, food, water, and medicine. So far, close to 40  who work for us have lost their homes. Two people we still have not heard from yet, but we are hopeful. One of our supplier’s factories is currently being used as a shelter that is housing over 300 people.

We want to help provide support to our extended “Eco Nuts” family in Nepal to get them whatever help they need to 

 All funds will be sent directly to our contacts in the area to use for food, supplies, shelter, and other urgent needs including  rebuilding houses for the people who lost their homes. 

Your prayers and support are much appreciated. We will provide updates on how funds are being used here and on our company’s Facebook page.  

Please continue giving to established relief/aid organizations in Nepal as well. There are many organizations helping in different ways, and all are important. We are not a charity.  All donations to this campaign are personal gifts and NOT tax deductible.

If you are unable to donate, please share!

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far. You are wonderful, awesome people! We are grateful to be in this position where we can raise these funds. Please help promote this fundraiser, donate and share! We are giving this money directly to the people who need it.
Here is what our people said:

"hI we are safe after these massive earthquakes and our working place. We all lost our homes we are spending our night without single tent. We government body also trying their best but unable to reach everywhere. We need your help if you can your small help will give us new life for us. "

And the second person:
"It is very difficult to explain you our communities of plantation areas are in very terrible situation they don’t have any shelter, hygienic meal, medicine,water,sanitation cloths so we don’t feel easy in these days every hour rescue team missing, many death body found in different districts still it’s not stopped yet every couple of hours it will be repeated so very scary situation.
Do you have any possibilities to raise fund, cloths or any other stuff to the peoples for plantation areas lack of basic needs they are facing terrible situation if such situation not solve soon then they will have another big problem e.g. communicable diseases or other infectious diseases that’s way I am going to appeal to all of customers, partners, business associate to help in this critical situation. If any possibilities please let me know at your convenience."
