The Story

On April 25, life in Nepal changed drastically.  My homeland was damaged by the 7.8 earthquake and all the subsequent and ongoing aftershocks continue to rattle not only the buildings and hills, but the people’s soul and spirit as well. I am now redirecting my efforts from relief supply to rebuilding. For this, I have set up this YouCaring site as an alternative to my CrowdRise site. It became apparent after a month of fundraising on that platform that their (CrowdRise) fees are too high, and I want as much money as possible to go towards rebuilding and relief efforts there.

I stand stead-fast in my resolve to help my country-people. And hence beginning this Fall and next Spring I plan to enlist the help of friends and clients who love Nepal to help rebuild as many homes and schools as possible – initially a minimum of 50 homes. My friends at 3 summits and I are fundraising for this now. Each new home should cost around $3,000. And building 50 homes would cost around $150,000. From past fund raisers we have around $50,000 and will now need to raise an additional $100,000.

It's amazing to see that donations are still rolling in even two months after the 3 Summits' climb of Mt. Rainier. We're well past the $100K mark and I've finally made the decision to register an organization in Nepal. The new organization will be the giving arm of my trekking company - Crystal Mountain Treks - and we will work first to rebuild homes and schools destroyed by the earthquake and later to assist underprivileged children. If all goes well, we're also planning to start the first soup kitchen in Kathmandu. Thank you very much!

My visit to the US has been quite fruitful. We currently have raised around $75,000 for the rebuilding and I hope we will raise $100,000 by the time I leave for Nepal next week. There are two fundraisers scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday. Do let me know if you want to come and support. Thank you!
