nepalNEPAL EARTHQUAKE RELIEF FUND: Please consider a donation.
Nepal experienced a devastating, tragic earthquake this past weekend - as of this time, over 4,000 people have perished and countless houses and historic monuments are in rubble. Devin Adhikari's (K2) father is from Nepal and is spearheading a donation drive to support this cause.

How can you help? Please consider one of the following:
  • Make an online-donation: SEBS* or the Ama Foundation**. 
  • Bring your family's donations in THIS WEEK for the jar outside the Principal's office. All donations will go directly to the Ama Foundation.
* SEBS is a grassroots volunteer-based 501(c) (3) organization without bureaucratic expenses (100% will go directly to the relief effort and 100% is tax deductible), and will be providing "immediate" medical relief, as well as food and shelter.

** The Ama Foundation is a grassroots US-based 501(c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing the most underprivileged children of Nepal with a loving home, education, and healthy live, and is expected to provide home and education to many children that will be orphaned because of this earthquake.
