Nepal earthquake donation site

$1,790 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 25 people in 47 months

As you may have heard, strong earthquake shook our home country, Nepal. Nepal is one of the world's poorest country with limited resources and aid. The little aid provided by the government won't reach rural areas outside Kathmandu valley. Some of the Nepalese citizens survived  but their homes did not. As of right now they are homeless, sleeping on the streets with pre-moonsoon season weather. Most of the victims are turned away when seeking for medical aid or food. They are forced to deal with their injuries and hunger. They have nothing to survive off of.

Our goal is to reach $10,000+ and ALL donation will go towards providing blankets, water, food, tent and medical aid and espically rebuilding their homes. The donation will go to my village called Ghormu located in Dhading, Katunje, Ward #2. My family located in Nederland, CO is creating this site because we still have a lot of familes back home in this village. All of the villagers are family or close relatives. As of right now Resham Gurung has created a non-profit account and we are trying to get more donation. The Nederland community members are working together to create fundrasing idea for the next few weeks. After the fundrasing has ended, we will combine all the donation money from the bank account, donation jars around town, events coordinated and the gofundme account and have members of the donation group decided what portion of the money will go towards the different types of aid that needed. The members includes: Resham Gurung, Barbara Hardt, Jill and Kabita Ghale (kabita.ghale@gmail.com). Your help would make a big impact to the villagers lives and helping them in a suitation like this. Soon as we get enough donation, volunteers will delivery the supplies directly to the victims. We will keep everyone updated on the improvement and where your donation are being used.  Every dollar counts! Your help will make a huge difference to the Neplease community Thank you!
- Sincerly, 
Nederland Neplease community.

Update: I've been working with Nora Pykkonen for the past few days trying to ship supplies soon as possible! We did a one-day drive at the high schools
( Evergreen HS, Kent Denver, Evergreen Montessori) and was able to get A LOT of great stuff. Thursday night everyone worked together and went through all of the donation and packed everything for friday.
Here is what we were able to send:
78 sleeping bags
121 raincoats/jackets
10 tents
Very generous donation from Big Agnes:
48 sleeping bags from Big Agnes.
3 liners
marmot tent
patagonia jacket
50 tarps
400 feet of line

HUGE HUGE thank you to Marco Biland for making the shipping happen, Marco and his wife helped prepare all of the boxes and allow us to use his shipping account. Also, to Big Agnes for donating all of the quality items and shipping them for us! They were very generous. Thank you to the Evergreen community that donated which helped with the shipping cost! Lastly, thank you to Nora! This wouldn't have been possible without her! She was able to pull a lot of string and do all of this in short amount of time for Ghormu village.

I will update the shipping cost plus tariffs once we find out and the left over donation from the Evergreen community will go towards rebuilding.

I was also able to get in touch with my family in the village, they said they desperately need tents and sleeping bags. They are low on food and will run out quickly, my family and I are working to deliver some food as well. I will also post pictures that I received from my brother.

I wish to also help Resham's home town. I am sending love and blessings to Kathmandu, Nepal every day. I miss Kathmandu Restaurant ambiance and food. God bless you, too, Resham and Kabita.
