Many of you have written to ask me what you can do to help the victims in Nepal. I wanted to give you a few options to choose from if you would like to help financially. These are the three I have chosen to donate to based on their reputation and the amount they donate directly to the cause (and not staff overhead).
The immediate needs in Nepal are medical supplies, food, and water. The long term needs will be rebuilding infrastructure and construction.
1) For immediate clean water: Charity Water based out of New York is providing clean water to those desperately in need in the hardest hit areas of Nepal. Charity Water has a 4 star rating on Charity Navigator, donating 100% of your contributions directly to the cause.
2) For immediate medical relief work: Project Cure based out of Colorado is providing medical supplies and equipment to doctors and nurses on the ground in Nepal who are desperately in need. Project Cure has a 4 star rating on Charity Navigator, donating 98.4% of your contributions directly to the cause.
3) For long term relief work: One Day's Wages based out of Seattle, WA is raising funds to provide long term relief and care after the immediate needs are met. One Day's Wages donates 100% of your money directly to the cause.
