100% of your contributions go to Nepal!

-- That means I (Kim, and my staff) do NOT take a salary for 2 months work in Nepal, do NOT pay my rent, do NOT take donors out to dinner, do NOT drive in white SUVs. Instead I DO cycle around Kathmandu on my bike  --

We will accept all clothing donations for Nepal and will distribute to earthquake affected villages personally or via friends at Nyano Sansar.

2 - Purchase fleeces, jackets & clothes from Kathmandu to support local economy
3 - BOTH!

NOTE: Several trekkers have donated directly to Lhakpa to rebuild his mother's home in Thame since they know his mother personally; since they donated privately I will not list here unless requested. But am happy to, please advise!

MANY other people have indicated that they wanted to help, and MANY of our friends have donated to other organizations, or are helping to spread the word. I wish I could list everyone who is helping Nepal in so many different ways, the list is long and inspiring!

If you have donated and are not yet on the list, we are waiting for a check, a Western Union transfer (free for 4 more days!) or a bank transfer to arrive. I will update the list soon ...

Collected to Date - $34,314
