This last weekend a devastating earthquake struck Nepal just outside of Kathmandu over the weekend that left close to 4000 people dead and over 6000 injured. Nepal needs our help now. There are many incredible non-profit organizations aiding in the relief efforts, but I personally feel drawn to GlobalGiving.org, I know the founders personallyl, I have seen their outstanding work and after working first hand with the disfunction of the Red Cross last fall, I know that these smaller organizations are able to get funding directly to those in need without layers and layers of salaries and bureaucracy in between.
Any money donated to the Nepal quake through www.GlobalGiving.org will help first responders with the immediate needs of the victims such as food, fuel, clean water, and shelter. Once the initial relief work is done, the fund will change to support the longer-term recovery efforts.
