There are people in this world that need you right now. The devastating earthquake in Nepal has left a great need in that country and we have a chance to come together now to show our support. Can you give? Even a little bit? We are sharing a plea from G Adventures, one of our favourite tour operators, who are now raising funds to help the people of Nepal recover from this sad event. Here are details about how you can help:
Canadian tour operator G Adventures launches an aid appeal in response to the 7.8-magnitude earthquake that devastated Kathmandu, Nepal and surrounding areas. Funds raised will support the long-term recovery of the affected communities. The initiative has raised more than $85,000 so far and the goal has been raised from $75,000 to $100,000.
“Nepal needs our help. Relief agencies are already mobilizing to provide food, shelter, and medicine to those affected by the earthquake, but it doesn’t end there. It will take months, even years to rebuild the country,” says Bruce Poon Tip, founder, G Adventures.
Donations can be made at http://bit.ly/1Qx5Sv1. G Adventures covers all administration costs so 100% of all donations will directly benefit the initiative.
Planeterra and G Adventures have a successful track record of supporting efforts in countries the tour operator travels to, creating a positive impact by working with local partners on sustainable projects needed to make a long-term difference.
“Our world is an amazing place to explore and has given us so much. When part of it is in trouble, it is our duty to step up and return the favour,” adds Poon Tip. “We know our travellers and partners care. As demonstrated with our past relief efforts in Haiti, East Africa, Peru and the Philippines, they supported and championed; they want to contribute and make a difference.”
