Our hearts go out to the victims of the recent earthquake in Nepal. We are proud to see our YouCaring community rallying, one free online fundraiser at a time, to bring hope to a country facing vast devastation. In the spirit of kindness, nearly 200 compassionate crowdfunding campaigns have been created on YouCaring to support Nepal relief efforts, with more being added every day. To date, more than $220,000 has been donated to help the country.
Help fundraise for good or support an important campaign. Here are just two of the many great YouCaring fundraisers to aid in Nepal’s recovery efforts:
Karma Sherpa, owner of Boulder, Colo.-based Sherpa Mountain Adventures trekking company, holds Nepal close to his heart. He grew up in the Mt. Everest region and has been guiding treks and expeditions to Nepal for 20 years. Karma Sherpa quickly assembled a disaster relief and support team of family members, friends, guides and other sherpas living in Nepal but unaffected by the disaster. His YouCaring campaign, which so far has raised nearly $20,000, is directly benefitting the team, so they can help victims in and around Kathmandu by providing clean water, food, donated blood, transportation assistance and other services.
