The Story

Tropical Storm Nate passed over Central America late this week and left incredible devastation in its wake. Citizens of Monteverde, an incredibly special town high in the cloud forest, have lost power, running water, and in some cases, their homes or businesses. 

Read up on the fallout from the storm at Tico Times.
Please consider donating to help those in need. All donations will be delivered to the Monteverde Community Fund.

In the near future we will have an update detailing some specific projects the money will be applied to. In the meantime:

Funds raised will be used to support families that have suffered losses from the storm, to provide resources to local groups working on disaster relief, and to support community projects that will help Monteverde be more resilient to future natural disasters. The Monteverde Community Fund will work with the community and the local emergency commission to best distribute the funds raised.

Hello again

We're at about 50% of our fundraising goal, and now friends can use credit cards to make a donation. 

The rain has slowed enough for recovery to begin, but they still need our help. If you tried to donate over the weekend but got an error message, please try again! If you still see any issues, please contact me directly.

Thanks

Sorry for the confusion! Credit card payments are being rejected for some reason; however, PayPal donations are being processed as expected, but seem to take about 24 hours to be reflected on the fundraising page.

If you tried to donate via credit card and saw an error, please try again with PayPal. I have also opened a ticket with YouCaring, and hope to have a resolution by Monday for those of you without a PayPal account.

Thanks for your patience, hopefully this will all be resolved soon.
