Safari West Employee Fire Losses

$2,460 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 39 people in 17 months
Created October 11, 2017
 
*********++++++++++++++**********
In concert with the Safari West Wildlife Preserve, this campaign has been established to help with the Safari West Employee Recovery Fund. Over recent days, many employees of Safari West have lost their homes, including Safari West founders, Peter and Nancy Lang. In spite of this immense personal tragedy, these amazing people continue to dedicate themselves to the preservation of the preserve.

Peter and Nancy Lang have politely but adamantly refused offers to fundraise on their behalf, however they welcome donations to aid Safari West family members whose lives have been devastated by these fires.

*All funds raised by this campaign are transferred to the Safari West Employee Recovery Fund organized by the Safari West Wildlife Preserve

At the suggestion of Safari West staff, I would like to share a bit about myself and my communication exchange with them and Mr. Lang with regard to this campaign and why I started it.

When I reached out to Mr Lang this was my first comminicque:

Dear Mr. Lang,

My name is Terry Tenzing Norgay and my daughter is the granddaughter of Sherpa Tenzing Norgay of Mt. Everest fame. I met you a month ago at Safari West and introduced myself. As soon as I heard of your tragedy from the fire, I set up a GoFundMe campaign generate support for your concern. I have raised $1200 in less than 24 hours and I plan to continue to do so. I would like to request your endorsement of this campaign so it's validity will not be questioned. I so appreciate what you do and how much you care. As a steward of many animals lives myself I am deeply grateful to you and I am so sorry for your personal losses.

Warmly, Terry Tenzing Norgay

They then followed up with The suggestion of setting up the funds with their accountant on staff and provided me with language to post to this campaign that legitimizes its intent.

Subsequently I posted this to the site and followed up with the communication that follows:

As requested, I have a signed P… as a beneficiary of the GoFundMe campaign and it has thereby generated an email to her directly requesting that she assume that role. Thank you for getting back to me so promptly. I am glad you have received such an outpouring of love and support. You and your family deserve that recognition. Thank you for all you do in educating people about conservation and the beauty of the natural world and the animals with which we share it. The work you do matters and creates such important awareness. Thank you for your dedication and compassionate care of those beautiful souls. After Mount Everest drove my life for many years, I began a pony party and petting zoo business and summer camp educational program based in Half Moon Bay. I too, am devoted to so many souls, and each to me, and am fortunate to live on a 300 acre ranch surrounded by beauty. I have been on a safari in Africa and it changed my life. What you do changes lives for those who cannot travel so far. Please do let me know what else we need to do to legitimize the go fund me campaign so we can share far and wide and people will feel comfortable donating knowing that from my heart to yours,

With deep gratitude,

Namaste.

Terry Tenzing Norgay
