As you all know, the earthquake in Nepal has been the deadliest natural disaster in more than 80 years for that nation. More than 5,000 people dead, over 9,000 injured. Eight million affected across Nepal, and one million children urgently in need of help. I was glued to the news coverage last weekend, feeling utterly helpless.
The New Yorkers for Nepal fundraiser is my humble attempt to help. Let's come together to help the people of Nepal and get them the funds they need to rebuild and recover. The organizations on the ground aren't always great at fundraising. But New Yorkers are. As a community of bright, driven, remarkable people, let's bring our light and strength to another community that is sorely in need of both right now, by donating whatever we can and inspiring our friends and families around the world to do the same.
AmeriCares, an emergency response and global health organization with a 4-star rating on Charity Navigator, will receive 100% of funds. Indiegogo Life collects no fees.

Any amount you can give will have a huge impact. We have 30 days to reach our $20,000 goal. Let's do this. Thank you so, so much.
