Help G Adventures Nepal Aid Fund Reach $100,000
In little more than a day since launching an aid appeal in response to the earthquake in Nepal, G Adventures surpassed its $75,000 fundraising goal.
“In just over a day, we've
raised more than $85,000 from nearly 1,000 donors from more than 35 countries,"
says Bruce Poon Tip, founder, G Adventures.
The tour operator has increased
its target to $100,000 and will contribute an additional $25,000 to encourage
continued donations in support of the recovery efforts.
G Adventures has already
delivered $10,000 in rapid mobilization funds, which will be used to distribute
emergency relief in the form of water, food, fuel, and blankets to villages
impacted in the Kathmandu Valley.
The balance of funds will be
used for the long-term repairing and rebuilding of homes in the region. This
includes the homes of dozens of porters, guides, and homestay hosts, and the
homes of the women from Planeterra's Sisterhood of Survivors community
project in Kathmandu.
