Nepal fundraising completed- thanks to all!
A huge, heartfelt thank you goes out to all who donated to the Rebuilding Nepal’s Villages GoFundMe campaign. Thanks to 542 of you, nearly 90 thousand dollars will go toward recovery in the aftermath of the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that hit Nepal on April 25th of this year.
