After spending 3 and 1/2 months in Indonesia
this year, I consider Gili Air my second home. I learned the importance of community and grateful living as well as how to live a life through love not fear. I left with a full heart and a second family.
On Sunday, August 5 a 7.0 magnitude earthquake
rocked northern Lombok and the Gili Islands. Everything is in ruins. The earthquake destroyed houses and roads along with access to fresh water and food. 350+ individuals have since lost their lives in this horrible natural disaster. As if that isn't bad enough, the government and relief agencies are slow to respond.
Every day my Lombok family sends me messages desperate for help - for food, water, money to rebuild and medical supplies.
It is with great humility, love and compassion that I invite you to help our brothers and sisters on the other side of the globe. 100%
of money raised will go directly to those affected by the earthquake.
Unable to go back to Indonesia and support with my own hands, fundraising is the next best course of action. $20 US may not seem like much to us, but it is a game changer in Indonesia.
Please make this your good deed of the day. Your support is invaluable.
