How you can help Nepal
Our thoughts go out to all that are affected by this terrible tragedy. We are deeply saddened by the devastation left in the wake of a magnitude 7.8 earthquake in Nepal. We here at Third Eye Adventure have been extremely lucky to have our friends and family all accounted for and safe.
Relief efforts have begun for those affected by the quake that has killed at least 2,000 people across the Himalayan region and injured more than 5,000 people in Nepal. It also has destroyed historic parts of the country’s capital of Kathmandu and caused avalanches on Mount Everest. Shelters have been set up, and with help from international teams, rescuers continue to search for survivors.
Actions speak louder than words, If you want to help the beautiful people of Nepal, please consider giving to one of the many charities that are helping with the recovery effort. Every dollar counts and will go towards supporting and rebuilding one of the poorest countries in the world.
I have personally setup a fundraiser to help out my good friend Ganesh and his family in Kathmandu, he is one of the owners of Third Eye Adventure and has lost his home, if you want to directly help some very good people, please click here to help.
