Rfugee Tibetans in India lost all in fire - Help!

I am trying to help raise funds for my friends and family in the Tibetan refugee settlement of Puruwala India that lost everything on September 1 in a devastating early morning fire.

Many families in the village sell sweaters in the winter to produce their income for the whole year. The warehouse where they stored the sweaters they bought burned to the ground and they lost everything. To most families this represents their total life savings and many had to borrow to buy the sweaters. 

If we can collect some money to help them soon, they may be able to repay the money borrowed for their inventory and purchase more inventory before winter.
