The Nepal earthquake is devastating. The choices to give for those of us who want to support the Nepalese can be overwhelming and confusing. My belief, that is shared by many others, is that giving locally to individuals and small organizations in the impacted region is the best way to get the most relief for your money to the people affected the most.
My friend Noah Howard has an import business, Ark Imports, that produces goods in Nepal for sale on the web and in retail specialty stores. He has started a fund-raising campaign. In his words “I am raising money to send to people I know and trust in Nepal who will give the $’s directly to those in urgent need.” Noah is very trustworthy and I have donated funds through his campaign. If you want to give, I ask you to consider this too.
