Bracelets For Nepal

 Hey friends,

On April 25th, an earthquake of massive magnitude shook through regions of the country surrounding the capital of Kathmandu, leaving behind destroyed villages and cultural monuments, thousands dead, and many more injured. Those who remain are in desperate need of basic necessities such as shelter, food, clean water, and access to primary health care. 

This tragedy has touched those all across the world. The level of local solidarity as well as foreign aid have served to ease Nepal's recovery. It is heartwarming to witness a global neighbourhood coming together to help victims with the healing process as they rebuild their lives and their communities. In the aftermath of the quake, a lot of time and effort will be needed before the region can be restored. But working together, we will provide Nepal with the hope and comfort that we are here and we are ready to help. 

How can we help? 
We are joining forces with CARE Canada and raising donations through an online CARE fundraiser to send relief to the victims of the recent earthquake in Nepal. 

What is CARE Canada? 
CARE Canada is a non-profit, non-governmental organization whose main goal is to serve individuals living in third-world countries. One of CARE's core projects is to provide rescue and relief in times of humanitarian emergency. As such, CARE is currently working in Nepal. CARE is also part of the Humanitarian Coalition with other leading Canadian aid agencies such as Oxfam, Save The Children, and Plan Canada.

Where will our money go?  
After carefully looking into all of the Canadian organizations that are providing aid for this natural disaster, we have decided to organize our fundraiser through CARE. Of all major, Canadian, non-profit organizations, CARE sends a relatively high percentage of all donations directly to programs and services dedicated to Nepal relief. (94%, compared to Plan at 79% or UNICEF at 72%). For more information about CARE's distribution of income, please visit the Canadian Revenue Agency website: http://goo.gl/xO6phv 
Your CARE donations will fund the mobilizing of staff onsite and cost of aid and supplies. The initial goal is to provide at least 100 000 people with essentials including blankets, housing, clean water storage units, and medical care. 
As well, until May 25, the Government of Canada will match every dollar raised for the Nepal crisis by registered Canadian charities, including CARE. 
There are no processing fees involved with donating via credit card or Paypal on our page, meaning that nothing will be deducted from your donation and the entire amount will be dedicated to the Nepal initiative!

Please note: While the DONATE link currently states that the distribution of donations will go towards more general CARE initiatives, we have contacted CARE Canada and confirmed that all donations made under the Bracelets for Nepal fundraiser will be directed towards supports set in place specifically for Nepal.

For every donation over $8 made out to our Bracelets For Nepal page, we will be mailing you a hand-made bracelet, woven with the colours of the Nepali flag, as a thank you for supporting our cause. Any donation over $10 is eligible for a tax receipt - after donating, you will receive a confirmation email within a short amount of time with a tax receipt attached for your records. 

***** In order for us to mail your bracelet out to you, we ask that you please send an email providing your name, tracking number, and mailing address to bracelets4nepal@gmail.com after donating *****

Please help us and SPONSOR our fundraiser today. If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to send us an email at the above address. Also feel free to share the link to our fundraiser (http://careca.convio.net/goto/braceletsfornepalwith your friends and family! Anything helps!
