"No Donation is Too Small or Too Big"
We want to thank everyone in our community for coming
together to support those affected by the Nepal Earthquake.
We are starting an emergency relief fund in Nebraska to assist with all efforts in
Nepal. You can either donate here or donate to Nebraska Nepalese Society (NNS)
and we will coordinate.
Your relationship to the parties you're raising funds for: Nepalese living abroad.
In one-way or another, many of our families are affected by this disaster.
How the funds will be spent (be specific as possible): we are coordinating
with various other NGOs, NPOs to ensure these funds will go directly towards
relief efforts such as Shelter, Medical Care, Food, and Potable Water in Nepal.
Your small contribution could make a huge difference in bringing relief
to those victims.
Thank you for all your support...every penny counts!!
