To Nepal with Love

It is heartbreaking to know that there has been a second major earthquake just weeks after the first one in Nepal.  Damage hadn't yet been assessed, and now another layer of trauma for so many.  I have received many letters of support towards my effort to help out - from many that knew my friend Kedar through me, and from those that have never met him.  It has been heartwaming to witness the compassion of others, and I feel even more strongly now, that I want to do what I can to help out so I am doubling my effort to really make a difference.  Please if you know anyone who might be interested in supporting earthquake relief, pass this link on to them.

All funds will directly benefit Kedar's family and neighbors.   We have raised over $8000 in private donations and online in the first few weeks.  I've never been an activist for anything before, but I feel the call now.  Thank you all for your support.  It means so much more than you know.
